Bombay Vintage is Suresh Bhandary‘s venture and it’s opened up in Colaba. It’s a great place to experiment with food, and the fusion cuisine is definitely worth a shot. Delicacies like Thai Chicken Biryani which is served in a pressure cooker are the reason we love trying out new places. Fittingly with it’s name, the decor is done with old photographs and memorabilia and invokes nostalgia.

The Mockingbird Café & Bar has book lined walls which is great way to filter the crowd and keep it slightly intellectual. It’s warmly lit and roomy, and the music is kept down to a volume where you can easily converse with your companions. Choice of music also deviates from the trending electronica and you’ll hear strains of Michael Jackson, Lorde, and Maroon 5 playing. The food for offer is a mix of European, Indian, and Thai, as well as stone baked pizzas and an impressive breakfast. They have an extensive bar and cocktail menu as well, and it’s definitely a place that you should try out!

There are exotic dishes like Bunny Chow and Caribbean Goat Curry, paired with equally unique cocktails like the Curry Leaf Martini, all of which makes for a fabulous meal.
