There is always ruthless competition if one wishes to establish one?s brand name, especially in the nightlife scene. The city that never sleeps is always abuzz with new restaurants and pubs lighting up its streets along with the much-revered establishments. Some are fortunate enough to garner curiosity and patronage owing to their novelty, while there are others that remain in their cocoon and shut down, forgotten. Below are some promising openings that will not disappoint Mumbaikars (hopefully):
Café Nemo (Worli)
Named after author Jules Verne?s great fictional wanderer Captain Nemo, Café Nemo is expected to open on 1st August 2014, Friday. Earlier occupied by Cool Chef Café and later Kolonial, this 4,500 square feet bungalow has now been taken over by the owners of the much-favoured Jim Jar Diner and Bonobo fame, Nevil Timbadia, Sahil Timbadia and Anup Gandhi. A stark contrast to the previous ambience and décor, which was marked by scruffy graffiti on the walls?thanks to skilled The Busride Studio, it will now symbolise elegance and simplicity owing to the minimalism. Crafted by Sahil Timbadia, the menu will be difficult to categorise. From Russian to Chinese to Italian, the dishes served here will bring a wave of contemporary flavours to authentic world cuisines, owing its brilliance to the much-honed former chef at Cafe Basilico and The Leela, Puranjoy Das. Apart from the finger-licking, sumptuous multi-cuisine food, they will also serve their signature cocktails, namely Shanghai Sour i.e., whisky with lemongrass, Zucchini by the Sea i.e., a vodka-based cocktail with zucchini and sea salt, and Southern Exposure i.e., a unique blend of gin, mint, lime, and celery juice.

Pizza Metro Pizza (Kemps Corner)
The famous London-based restaurant chain with a flourishing outlet in Bandra is soon going to enchant the townies in Mumbai. Predicted to launch by the end of 2014, Pizza Metro Pizza is famous not only for serving some of the most flavoursome and exotic pizzas cooked to perfection but also for their metre-long pies, which are something one cannot easily get over. The interiors will be striking, exuding elegance, warmth, and class, as one can assume based on the branch in Bandra. The Italian spread can be best combined with their exhaustive bar menu, an assortment of the best spirits, and cocktails. Slightly steep with respect to the pricing, it is expected to have high potential.
