Go from boardroom to Bordeaux room at The Wine Table, where wines from across the world are sold at MRP, making this bar as much an everyday drinking den, as it is a weekend one.
Sitting pretty in Bandra and Powai, The Wine Table stocks over 450 wines from across the world, each one personally sourced by proprietor and vinter. Perch on their plush leather chairs crowned by chandeliers, and browse their library of libations - red, white, sparkling and rose wines from Australia, Chile, France, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, USA and India. When so much is available at wine shop rates (MRP), but with the frills of a beautiful bar, it's hard not to turn into a regular here.
On the kitchen front, The Wine Table has a cluster of excellent small plates to pair with wine; our favourites include Quiche Florentine, Chickenf Marinated in green Chermoula paste, Butter Garlic Prawns with lemon, Goat cheese studed with prunes coated with Pistachino/chilli.
Once you're there, also ask after their sommelier-led wine tastings, that cover different regions of the world. Finally, an academic lecture we can get behind! We won't complain about homework either.
