What: Piccoli Tortini, Shams Palace, 98, Hill Road, Bandra (W), ahead of Mocha, call 69996065, Rs 70 for a cannoli tortini, Rs 90 for a cupcake, Rs 185 for a Macchiato.
Why: This new “boutique bakery” with chandelier, assorted couches and cake trays opens in Bandra today. If the delicious cannoli tortini we tried during a pre-opening pop-in is anything to go by, you should look forward to their small selection of desserts (pumpkin spice cupcake, lemon cake, blueberry breakfast scones), Italian savouries (garlic focaccia, turkey Panini) and pricey coffee. High tea and pasta will be introduced soon. Look out for the full review!
When: Bravo Heart showing today, October 25.
What: Full text book posters by The Narrators, call 9820427444, visit www.the-narrators.com/posters, start at Rs 15,000 with the frame, shipped across India.
Why: You know how you’ve always wanted to wear a monocle? Here’s one reason: newly launched company The Narrator sources classic book posters from Europe that have the entire novel text written on a single satin paper canvas to form a design. Journalist Reshma Jain, who got the idea when a friend from Berlin gifted her the Pride and Prejudice version, plans to start designing them in-house soon, which should lead to a drop in price. See Trainspotting, The Picture of Dorian Gray, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and more. Without these, the monocle you’re wearing looks a little pretentious. Just saying.
When: You want to go Where the Wilde Things Are.
What: Serafina, new Italian restaurant, level 3, Palladium, Senapati Bapat Marg, Lower Parel, call 40237711 for reservations, Rs 3,500 for a meal for two (with alcohol).
Why: With bass-heavy music and kids running around in Halloween costumes, the newly opened Serafina felt less like a fine-dine restaurant, more like a super pricey fast food joint. New Lower Parel haunt? Making up for the mayhem at this NY restaurant however, were pretty murals, spicy Mexican Mojitos, baked skinless pomfret and gelato in a honey flavoured almond shell. Full review out soon! PS: We hear they will launch in Delhi and Bangalore soon.
When: Open now for lunch and dinner from noon onwards.
Why: We love what you’ve done with your cubicle – those Impressionist ink splotches, the floor-to-ceiling file installation, rich coffee rings. But you know who can make it better? Michelle Pereira. Former Ernst & Young employee, Michelle has started a new service called OCD, where she’ll visit your museum of mess, assess the damage and understand your work schedule. She’ll then send you an estimate: time, effort, budget (she’ll charge by the hour) and assured neatness, showing you what to trash and how to organise. Okay, maybe you can keep one splotch. OCD can work with homes or just specific rooms as well. Tidy Klum!
When: You want to aim for minimalism.
What: Zakir Hussain - Live In Concert at Jamshed Bhabha Auditorium, NCPA, Nariman Point, donor passes available at the NCPA (66223737) and Rhythm House (43222727), Rs 3,000, Rs 2,000 or Rs 1,000
Why: Drum roll! This weekend, Ustad Zakir Husain will be closing the 11-day long celebration of the 60th year of the Jehnagir Art Gallery, with a live classical concert. The tabla maestro will play new compositions and will be accompanied by Ganesh Rajgopalan on violin, Sridhar Parthasarthy on mridangam, Navin Sharma on dholak and Rakesh Chaurasia on flute.
When: You want to meet the knight of the round tabla on Saturday, October 27 at 7 pm.
