Mumbai by Zip Code: 7 Go-to Spots at Fort for some Eat, Play and Work
Mumbai is a vast city which never seems to stop expanding. As we traverse through this urban jungle, we bring you the best restaurants in each area so that no matter where you are you’ll know exactly where to get your next meal.
After Colaba, let’s move a couple of steps North towards the Fort area of Mumbai. Wandering around Fort you’re most likely to run into two types of people; the corporate crowd, who work at the numerous banks or high-end stores nearby, or the tourists who pause every few seconds to marvel at the architecture surrounding them. For the corporate crowd, here’s a range of restaurants you can visit when entertaining business partners, throwing office parties or when you need a quick meal between meetings. Tourists, feel free to battle with the corporate crowd for space at these eateries – the fare will be delicious.
