With its sun washed Mediterranean charm, Olive has captured the hearts of Mumbaiites like no other place. Jus díesprit with models and celebrities every night this is the cityís most in vogue hotspot. From the entrance where hanging vines and creepers tumble over the whitewashed walls, you enter to find a lush oasis that's more The Ivy than India. There's a pebble dash garden with low tables and chairs outside to eat or drink at and a restaurant and sunken bar inside where the rest of the glamour set gather. Dinerís have a choice of indoor or al fresco style dining to enjoy the many highlights from the Mediterranean-inspired menu. Unlike the many non-Indian restaurants in Mumbai that adapt their food to suit the Indian palate, the dishes here aren't "currified," and the kitchen uses olive oil instead of clarified butter. Seafood dishes are especially good, with the lobster risotto and peppercorn-crusted calamari of particular note, blueprints of modern eclectic cuisine that even establishments in Europe would benefit from examining. Olive epitomizes modern Mumbai; chic, surprising, pragmatic and capable of flourishing on the merits of itís own identity rather than attempting to mirror those of another culture. An absolute tour de force for new Bombay.
