We are in an era where food is not just a necessity anymore- it has elevated to the level of enjoyment that is beyond survival. Having said that, any celebration would be felt half hearted, without good food- especially during this festive season.
FMW suggests give your “regular” cafe a skip and discover the mouth watering delicacies and beverages of a new, unexplored place this Christmas.
1) HE said, SHE said: This unique lounge has set its foot in Andheri West in December itself. So you will be one of the first few to get the taste. HE said, SHE said is a shot lounge and cafe where they serve you with umpteen types of shots to keep your spirits up high. It has three bars and so you never have to wait for your drink. Go with your favourite bunch of friends and play the most famous drunk game “I never”- one shot for each round! Oh, what a fun filled Christmas that would be!
2) The Big Bang Bar and Cafe: The Bandra’s favourite hangout spot is now also open at Oshiwara as a duplex Bungalow bar. This newly opened spot is flowing with crazy cocktails and gourmet food of continental, Mexican, Lebanese as well as North Indian cuisines. They have initiated a campaign to prevent drunk driving and offer a driver to drop you home on a first come first serve basis. Also, the Bandra outlet will be celebrating their premier anniversaire as well as Christmas-its double celebration for them. It also means you get double of drinks for the price of one through 25th to 30th December!We recommend you try the 3 special cocktails to get into the Christmas cheer.
3)Le Cirque: NYC’s extremely fine dining French-Italian restaurant has now opened at The Leela, Mumbai. After a welcoming response at Delhi two years ago, this move was not an unforeseen one. In New York, it’s a black tie restaurant but here it is relaxed a notch. You may wear a pair of denims but not flip flops or open toe footwear. If you are in a mood for a grand Festive dinner, rather an elegant one- sipping cocktails or wine and waiting for your dish to be served with time tested perfection then this one’s for you. After all, in a world of junk and street food and informal dining, such an experience is not something that can happen often- also because it comes with a huge cost !
These December newbies are ready to be explored and out there tempting us to indulge. Where are you heading this Christmas? Make a choice or make it a tour! xx
