New Eateries in South Mumbai
Sobo ( South Bombay) will see the launch of 3 new restaurants - here’s a stripped out version of a mid-day article we chanced upon.
Chez Vous (pronounced shey vu; means ‘at your place’), which came up where Sundance Cafe used to be is a franchise of an international chain of French bakery-style cafes. It serves homely French bistro fare. They hope to offer a warm and friendly atmosphere to serve affordable French breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lunch menu will cater to business crowds and change every day. Dinner will be a more complete and elaborate French experience. The fixed-priced lunch menu comes at Rs 650, while the gourmet dinner is priced at Rs 1,300 and includes appetizers, three courses, bite-sized desserts and coffee. Their drink menu offers French liquors, but it’s the Absinthe bar that’s raising curiosity. The green drink with hallucinatory properties has a history of being the favourite tipple of French artists.
‘The Table’ which opens late this month is a Californian-inspired restaurant that will open shop in Colaba right next to Indigo Deli and Moshe. The Table is set to have a 26 feet-long communal table that allows guests to interact with fellow diners. The focus will be on Californian cuisine. As owner Jay Yusuf explains, Californian cuisine tends to have classic French undertones, but it is simplified with a focus on fresh ingredients.
Le Pain Quotidien (pronounced luh pan koh-ti-dyan, it means ‘the daily bread’), which also opens sometime this month opposite the table, is an international chain of bakery-cafes, the first of which was founded in Brussels. LPQ is known for its signature organic, hand-made breads and communal table where friends and strangers dine together (yup its similar to the one at The Table) that welcomes guests in cities across the world.
