The Space

Joining this is Minal Chopra, who has taken up Binge as her second restaurant project, after designing Bastian Worli. She has brought her signature style to the&nbsp35- seater,&nbspindoor-outdoor space with key features such as a vertical herb garden, statement pieces,&nbspdelicate lighting filled with hues of ecru, cream, and beige lined with fiolage and cacti to create an effect reminiscent of a Latin American home.

Binge is supplemented with macrame and tassels on the cluster of lamps inside, and the umbrellas are al fresco. There's rattan on the chairs, and cacti along the walls. However, unlike Bastian Worli, Binge is designed to create a comfortable, cosy feel away from the hustle and bustle of the city, while still being located in the heart of Mumbai,&nbspbringing in natural light, alongside an abundance of space packed with greens to keep it fresh and inviting.

With Binge, Chef Victor has gone the extra mile to bring the feeling and flavours of his home to Mumbai. The vibe is warm, and the doors are open &ndash now all you need to do is head over, raise your glass and say &lsquosalud&rsquo
