Dining out has never been so pleasurable since the arrival of new additions to Chennai’s dining scene. The city has become a mecca of fancy restaurants that have managed to draw the patronage of the diners in abundance. Few areas than most have benefited from this culinary resurgence and Nungambakkam is one of those trendy spots that have gained the maximum advantage. The vicinity has recently gained ‘Bombay Brasserie’ which is a fancy fine dining restaurant tucked onto College Lane. Soon after its opening, the restaurant drew a huge crowd of diners which later turned into posse of regulars. Dining here may not be cheap but it’s totally satisfying. Patrons come here to sample the restaurant’s gorgeous fare and its lovely elegant ambience. So popular has been Bombay Brasserie that it is wise to book ahead even on weekdays.
Bombay Brasserie is nestled into a lush green pocket of the city which takes the dining experience to a whole new level. The restaurant has very cleverly tried to use the nature to their best advantage by modifying their façade in such a way that indoors and outdoors blend seamlessly together. Interiors are plush and modern. The décor is furnished in a contemporary manner but there is nothing harsh about the setting. Everything is soft and soothing to the eyes. Ambience is classy, artsy and very tasteful. But in spite of such fancy surroundings there is a part of the restaurant which is in a lot of demand. Bombay Brasserie has very cleverly extended their restaurant into a glass conservatory which is equipped with handful of tables. It has a floor to ceiling panel of glass on all three sides, so it’s like dining into a lush garden.
The restaurant follows a complete North-Indian menu. It is composed in a very clever manner by offering their patrons a wide variety of rich Indian dishes. To start sampling the menu we recommend you to take your time to browse through the first course. It entails, subz shikampuri kebab, prawn koliwada, challi subz ki seekh, panch phoran chicken, gosht sigdi se, golden tiger prawns, gunpowder potatoes and paperwali machchi. Ask your server to get you a peach margarita before hitting the main course. To mop up the decadent array of curries choose between a flaky buttery naan or a bowlful of aromatic biryani. Finish with trio of phirni, ras-e-aam or jalebi.
There are only handful of places in Chennai that are as popular or as fantastic as Bombay Brasserie. The restaurant is a standing favourite amongst the serious foodies living in Chennai. Because of its lovely airy interiors, Bombay Brasserie has become a busy meeting spot for everyone. Its glass conservatory extending into the garden is a quite romantic location for dates.
