You may have noticed some changes occurring at the former Bombay restaurant on Laurel Street in Lee. But there is nothing to fear. The changes are mostly cosmetic, says Kara Steeber, wife and part owner of the eatery’s new incarnation, Mint. She, along with chef-husband Manoj Nair, restaurant manager Pramod Warriar, and Jatin Udeshi, have taken ownership—as of April this year—of the beloved buffet hotspot overlooking Laurel Lake.
“It’s chef-owned now, which is wonderful, and the location is still great,” Steeber says. “We’ve knocked out a couple of walls and changed things to make it more comfortable, more elegant.” The authentic Indian menu, however, remains untouched, with popular dishes like chicken tikka masala, lasooni gobi, and rack of lamb still flying out of the kitchen on sizzling plates. The much-sought-after buffet brunch (open only on the weekends from September to May) offers an abundance of food, including several vegetarian and vegan options. For now, MINT is BYOB, so come prepared if you want something a little stronger than chai.
