Started by Shilarna (Le Cordon Bleu chef and owner of Ninja Sushi) and Christophe, Gaia’s menu features morel mushrooms, melon gazpacho, mini cheese burgers and Shilarna’s risotto version of her grandma’s Maharashtrian prawn khichdi. They cater to parties of 10 to 30, and bring crockery and bartenders if required.

What: Say It With, Atria Mall, unit number 153, Dr Annie Besant Road, Worli, call 9820726388, price on request.
Why: Giant cocktail glasses and candy-coloured boxes, sea-blue candle stands and a crystal chandelier all vie for space at this new(ish) shoebox-sized store, where you can’t actually buy anything. What you can do, however, is pick from the display or order customised gift-wrap and stationery for your upcoming bachelorette, baby shower or lunch soiree, and they’ll tailor the order exactly to your needs.
When: You want a part-y time job.

Why: Nominated for six Academy Awards and one of bpb’s favourite movies ever, this creepy-cool, visually spectacular Guillermo del Toro movie is best seen on a big screen.

This month’s line up also includes Beauty and the Beast, Ground Hog Day and 2046.
When: Sunday, December 4 at noon.
