What: Le Pain Quotidien, Dhanraj Mahal, opposite Indigo Deli, Colaba, approximately Rs 300 for a sandwich.
Why: The popular Belgian bakery comes to Mumbai, complete with honey-toned wooden interiors, signature communal tables and hand-baked bread. A sneak peek yielded delish chicken and asparagus open-faced sandwiches (tartines), hearty lasagna and an apple crumble as comforting as warm pop-tarts on a frosty morning. Look out for the full bpb review.
When: Opens middle of next week.
