It Happened In New York Bandra West, Mumbai

It Happened in New York (ITHINY), is conveniently located just off the Sealink in Bandra, is a restaurant serving food inspired by New York’s contemporary dining scene, as well as craft cocktails. Guests are greeted by the venue’s royal blue walls and cozy carpets, as they enter the space. A community table on the ground level encourages diners to sit and mingle, while watching the activity on the bustling Bandra streets pass them by. The first floor offers additional seating, as well as an 18-foot long bar, which focuses on craft cocktails. The restaurant’s all-day dining menu has been designed by Executive Chef Sanyo Vaz who's focus is on the essence on New York. From the ubiquitous food trucks that dot every street corner, to the pizzerias in the West Village, and from the multiple Michelin-starred restaurants to the hole-in-the-wall bodegas, they have endeavored to touch upon every aspect of the New York culinary scene and interpret it within their menus.
The food is clean and understated with no gimmicks and every dish has a little story: be it a snippet from the voluminous and detailed food history of the city or someone's personal struggle in tough times, where food was a comfort. ITHINY’s bar menu has drawn deeply from New York, the city where the cocktail culture was born and blossomed.
