The Grant Hyatt used to run a wonderful steakhouse called M but because it was a decade ahead of its time it was always empty. So the management took the smart decision to shut it down (especially considering that beef is now banned in Maharashtra) and to close the boring old coffee shop. Now the M space has become a buzzy, all-day dining restaurant with a vibe and energy that is unmatched in the suburbs. The menu is multicuisine (there are chefs imported from the Hyatt in Tokyo and Bangkok) and the lunch buffet is of high quality. But the restaurant also hosts Mumbai’s hottest brunch where the Prosecco keeps flowing and the buffet table groans under the weight of some of the best food north of Worli. There are live stations and two breaks. During the first, the staff dance to Gangnam Style and during the second, the guests (who have now drunk lots of Prosecco) spontaneously get up to dance with the chefs and serving staff.
Restaurants refurnish and reinvent themselves all the time after the tastes of the diners change or sometimes because the concept takes time to catch on.
