Savor Kitchen: The kids behind the Secret Supper Club and frou-frou lunch dabba service Savor, now have a new room with a view. The Savor Kitchen in Lower Parel, has a soaring ceiling with a skylight, which can be visited in small parties or booked out entirely. This “anti-restaurant” does not allow walk-ins, which means breakfast and lunch services need to be booked an hour in advance, and dinner, a day before. Now open.
Next to India Bulls building, Lower Parel. To book call 7045451777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Xico: CIA educated, Scott Linquist, culinary director at Coyo Taco Miami and ex Dos Caminos, is setting up a “modern Mexican” restaurant at Kamala Mills as we speak. With partners Sahil Saigal and Shiraz Patel (of Trikaya), he hopes to take you away from Tex-Mex and introduce you to Mexican flavours via fresh ingredients. Sounds delicious, but the all-day agave cocktails are what you should really be excited about. Cheers! Opens in September 2017.
