New year, New Restaurants

2017 promises to be in a lot of new things with itself. To begin with, we have 10 awesome restaurants to be launched in Mumbai in the first half itself.

Here’s where you should snap your food stories from.

1. DROP, Bandra

We love Bar Stock Exchange, don’t we? The same group is coming up with yet another chain called DROP. Launched on the first day of 2017, this one is a European resto-bar that serves French cocktails. It got dining scenes on weekdays and becomes a party spot on weekends. So, we can all finally co-exist!

Opened: 1 January 2017
Where: No G1/B, Krystal Building, Waterfield Road, Bandra (W), Mumbai
Contact: 42296000

2. La Folie Lab, Lower Parel

La Folie is Bandra’s favourite spot for all things fancy. Just the sight of desserts and eggs benedict at this place can make your soul happy. And now a sibling is being born in Lower Parel. Townies, enjoy the regulars and the newly introduced single origin coffee from estates across the country.

Opening: End of January
Where: Kamala Mills, Lower Parel, Mumbai

3. Pravas, Lower Parel

Offering comfort food, Pravas will put your homemade food cravings to rest. Complete with a rooftop garden area, serving Gujarati, South Indian, and Maharashtrian food,  we think, this place is going to be well appreciated!

Opening: In January 2017
Where: Kamala Mills, Sun Mills Compound, Lower Parel, Mumbai

4. Shizusan, Lower Parel

If you have been to this Asian bistro in Pune, you will be as excited as us to know that it is coming to Mumbai! Other than their amazing sushi, baos, and dim sums, Shizusan will have a 27-foot long bar for you to sit and enjoy your cocktails.

5. The Stables, Andheri

The Dubai-based British pub is coming to in Mumbai with a designated space for live gigs. I think Mumbai could do with more pubs like this one, right?

Opening: January
Where: The Competent Hotel, Marol Naka, Andheri Kurla Road, Opposite Hotel Leela, Mumbai

6. Toast and Tonic, Bandra

Anyone from Bangalore who has recently relocated to Mumbai? Look what followed you! Bangalore’s loved Toast & Tonic, a barn-style restaurant, is going to open in Mumbai. Since the one in Bangalore uses local ingredients, it will be interesting to see the twists to their menu in Mumbai with different local ingredients.

Also, a highlight of their menu is their range of herb-infused cocktails, like Herbalist, which has coriander-orange ice floating around a G&T made with in-house basil and orange-infused tonic. Interesting!

7. Amanzi Sky Deck and Bar, Bandra

A poolside bar in Bandra, Amanzi will have special tiki cocktails, along with grills and wood fired pizza, adding yet another great place to chill in the city. I think I will go for the pool!

Opening: January
Where: Hill Road, Bandra(W), Mumbai

8. 145, Bandra

Kala Ghoda’s much-loved cafe is all set to open up in Bandra! Adding mac n cheese and more amazing stuff to their existing list of crepes, waffles, and eggs, 145 promises to be the next Bandra brunch spot.
