Bored of the usual haunts? Check out the new hotspots on the Mumbai food circuit. (Rather drink at home? Dial in cocktails from your favourite haunts.)

Bar Bar
Pre-gaming at this new watering hole at Phoenix Market City is always a good idea. Their wholesale pricing strategy means the more you drink, the lesser you pay. They’ll even sort you out with nibbles like vada pav popcorn and samosa toasties. Tel: 022 6180 1501

Genuine Broaster Chicken
This hot new Versova diner offers a mouthwatering array of interesting dishes for meat-lovers. With the tagline ‘American food with an Indian heart’, expect juicy juxtaposes such as the Rogan Josh burger and the Penne Punjabi. Tel: +91 8291 002 847

KOKO
Spread across 3,500 square feet in Kamala Mills, KOKO is a new project by the Tham brothers (you might be familiar with their other dig: The Good Wife). They’ve roped in renowned mixologist Dimi Lezinska – he’s done cocktails at Cannes and Oscar parties, and hosts a Discovery Channel show – to put together a spectacular cocktail menu. Settle down for a couple of Tom Yum cocktails at their 100-foot-long island bar. Tel: 022 6105 3939

Mirabella
This quaint European-style café and restobar in Andheri is a pocket of calm in the bustle. We are in love with their refreshing botanical decor, and diverse menu serving vegan choices alongside indulgent desserts. Tel: 022 3015 1598

Three Chicks And A Bear
This cute little place in Lower Parel, run by the lovely family behind Theobroma, serves up a gorgeous feast of burgers, freakshakes and starters alongside a delectable array of homemade sauces. Their Israeli salted tenderloin burger is not for the faint of heart – it’s loaded with eggs, crispy bacon, and buffalo patty. Tel: +91 82912 72042

Raasta
The Hauz Khas hit can now be found off SV Road in Khar. It’s got a strong Rastafarian aesthetic (good vibes only). Stick to the beer and burgers. Tel: +91 98181 02392

Thyme Bistro
Make a pit stop at this new dig in Powai after your 9-to-5. The global menu covers fusion food (misal fondue, anyone?) spicy bar bites, Pan Asian favourites (khow suey and dim sums too!), and Mediterranean sharing platters. A little bit of everything. Bonus? Efficient service. Tel: +91 80802 80000
