The Sunday brunch is no ordinary meal – it’s a tradition to be revered and enjoyed in the company of friends and family, preferably while lingering over drinks and comfort food. The concept of Sunday brunch is catching on in Mumbai like never before, and fortunately for us, restaurants are putting together a delightful cocktail (and, in some cases, champagne!) infused spread, making the lazy Sunday mid-morning feast a meal to remember.
One such place that enjoys a long-standing reputation for their Lazy Jazz Sunday Brunch is Vicinia, an all day café located in the heart of Kemps Corner that serves gourmet delicacies of the world. With Jazz playing in the background, the brunch menu offers creative twists on traditional brunch favorites – soups, salads, appetizers, pizzas and desserts. And the best part? You can linger over unlimited drinks, which include domestic beer, wine, IMFL spirits and cocktails!
Since brunch is a meal that cannot be rushed, we suggest you take your time lingering over drinks. The brunch starts at 11 AM and goes on till 4 PM and is priced at Rs. 1200 (without alcohol) and Rs. 1800 (with unlimited alcohol). Taxes extra as applicable.
About Vicinia: Touted as the ‘It’ place in the heart of SoBo, Vicinia makes the experience of a European café as authentic as possible. The name Vicinia means ‘neighbourhood’ and true the name, they are strategically located in Kemps corner, an area that is easily accessible from places in South Bombay like Peddar road, Breach Candy and Warden road. The beautiful heritage building that houses Vicinia has a façade made entirely of glass offering a meal with a view. Enter and be enveloped by the cosy, well-appointed interiors filled with artefacts from around the world. Highlighting the interior are the wrought-iron grills that serve as partitions between tables named after various places in Bombay from by-gone days when the pace of life was much slower.
The impressive menu has been put together by the expert team of chefs with something to please every palate. Sample the delicious Truffled mushroom Crostini or Vegetable Arancini that make the perfect appetizers. For health fanatics, there is an array of roast meats and fresh salads with exotic ingredients like the Quinoa & Arugula salad with lime vinaigrette or the Iceberg Wedge salad with Blue cheese dressing. The extensive menu also boasts a variety of sandwiches, pizzas, freshly made pastas, burgers and steaks made to order.
The bar menu includes an interesting wine list. In-house specials like the Green Dragon, Just Beet it and Spiced Swizzle are definite crowd pleasers. They are also happy to make some noise with their signature alcoholic concoctions.
