Gupshup, old Mumbai on the New York shores

Dive into the world of old Mumbai and 19th-century India, successfully brought back to life in this restaurant.

In Hindi, a “gupshup” is a rumour. Restaurant owner Jimmy Rizvi wants to pass some of his native India on to New York. Spread over two levels, the address means to provide a place for sharing, where it feels good to spend time with friends. On the walls, large works of art hark back to Indian culture, like this impressive hand-painted tiger. Gupshup also pays tribute to the “dabbawalla”, these Mumbaikar meal delivery men without equal. On the menu, large plates to share, with wild morel mushrooms from the Himalaya, or a lobster tail in curry sauce. You will also find smaller dishes, to be enjoyed like tapas. Do not pass by the “Rock N Roll Bombay Bhel”, a traditional Indian preparation with air-fried fox-nuts. Voted best barman in Boston, Tenzin Samdo now operates in New York and prepares heavenly cocktails, enlivened with his secret ingredient: Indian spices.
