It must be international food day at my house. I'm certainly on a kick. The day after Falafel Inn, I went to Bombay Bar and Grill - Westport's Indian restaurant. To be honest, I've only been to an Indian restaurant once in my life and it wasn't a good experience, so I wasn't too excited to try it again. But I'm an adventurer, and everyone raves about my town's amazing Indian jewel, so I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! Bombay features a taste medley at lunchtime with a tantalizing buffet (or you can order off the menu if you prefer). I opted for the sampler buffet. Everything was scrumptious. And the decor and atmosphere of this restaurant was very hip and chic. Go check it out if you want a little exotic excursion.

Oh, did I mention that Bombay is conveniently located in the same strip mall as Knitting Central? Extra bonus points for location, location, location!
P.S. I forgot to rave about the wonderful staff. I mentioned to the maitre d' that I wasn't really familiar with Indian food, and he personally walked me through the buffet line explaining what each item was. I was quite touched with his hospitality. And I fell in love with the Naan bread -- former Westport resident Martha Stewart's personal favorite - as it says on the menu.
