NYCD: Friendly, bright vibe. Good service

    A little bird told me about New York City Diner (NYCD) opening in Bandra Reclamation mentioning that it’s the new offering from Soul Fry’s Meldan and Kevin D’Cunha. So I had to check it out.

    NYCD is a New York-themed Diner with a very American menu:

    Mains, Soups. Salads (in mason jars), Shaken & Stirred (including spritzers), Sweet Tooth and Hunger Games – offering snacks at student pocket friendly prices.

    Here’s what we ordered:

    • Ham and cheese croissant
    • Black sheep gyro (lamb kabab stuffed in a khaboos)
    • Philly cheese steak (in a roll) with fries
    • Masala chai which came in a kulhad-like mug with 2 large cookies (can we call it Spiced Chai Latte keeping with the American theme
    • The portions are good and the accompanying fries are the most amazing tapioca crisps.

    The food would’ve been fantastic and a 5/5 but I felt their bakery items need improvement – the croissant should be flaky and the roll should not break into pieces. That said, we went when its barely been open a few days/weeks and I am sure the brothers D’Cunha will ensure a high standard of fare.

    It was good to see a good number of people walk in, despite its having opened so recently. Several students were there from MET (I’m guessing here).

    I liked the colours and the friendly bright vibe. Good service too! Great for youngsters, to fill ‘em up. Good value.

    I will return with my son and his friends… they’ll love the menu!
