After steering the success story of Lavaash by Saby in Delhi and Byg Brewski in Bengaluru, chef Saby Gorai returns with his first Mumbai venture, Recca, in Kala Ghoda.

Think, European cuisine made with Indian ingredients like Kalari Cheese from Kashmir and phodshi bhaji from Maharashtra. And we are not just talking pita and hummus but significant tastings from Greece, Armenia, the Middle East, and Turkey. The interiors of the place are similar to what they serve on the menu — casual yet chic.
