Both the restaurant and bar “will evoke a neighborhood-gathering place,” according to a press release, with FIA offering a Mediterranean-inspired menu with a focus on wood-fired dishes. The concept will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with seats for 68 guests.
Adjacent to the restaurant will be Mr. B., named in honor of Freny’s father Keki Bunshah, who organized the first Indian expedition to Mount Everest. Photographs from his climbing expeditions will adorn the lounge. Mr. B. will specialize in cocktails and spirits anchored by a 60-seat bar and lounge area, including a library and fireplace. FIA’s full menu will also be served at Mr. B.
