What: Cafe by the Beach, near Mafatlal Club, Seashore Beach, Girgaum, Chowpatty, Rs 1,800 for a meal for two.
Why: Launched yesterday at our favourite ocean front property, Cafe By The Beach is a geriatric version of its predecessor Salt Water Grill, with no alcohol on the menu and strict dietary restrictions (they can’t serve cooked food, leaving you with a choice of mostly sandwiches and wraps). bpb loved prosciutto-brie sandwiches, sand beneath our feet and the gorgeous view.
