With the expansion of Mumbai, there is a greater chance of restaurants opening up in the suburbs starting from Bandra and going right up to Kandivali in the west, or up to Thane in the east. Yet, Churchgate has held its own with people still coming from various parts of the city to sample food at some iconic restaurants, as well as the new crop that’s taken shelter in Olde Bombay.
Here are some of our favourites from Churchgate:
Pizza by the Bay
Originally called Jazz By The Bay, Pizza by the Bay has always been a fancy-ish diner overlooking the sea. Enjoy some thin crust pizzas, along with healthy salads and desserts. Oh, and don’t forget to take a walk on Marine Drive after. And when entering or leaving the restaurant, do read their sassy 'talk of the town' board. It's hilarious!
