The Bombay Club is pleased to debut a collection of mango-inspired dishes and cocktails exclusively during dinner service. India’s Alphonso mango is a seasonal fruit, considered to be among the most superior varieties of the fruit in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor. Executive Chef Nelish Singhvi has designed dishes to showcase this delicious treasure while they are in season. Specials are available a la carte, and include the Shrimp Malabar with mango chutney ($14), the Mango Fish Curry ($26) and the Mango Crème Brûlée ($10.)

For the perfect pairing, Bombay Club's Bartender/Mixologist Kellen Colbert is creating three spring cocktails, highlighting seasonal ingredients incorporating house-made syrups, to complement each course. Standouts include the Gloria, made with vodka, lemon juice, strawberry syrup, and sparkling wine, the Mable Cucumber Tini, made with vodka, elderflower liqueur, lime juice, and cucumber purée, and the Bombay Manhattan, made with rye whiskey, Bengal spice tea infused syrup, and Angostura bitters. Cocktails are priced at $12 each.

Available exclusively during dinner service Monday through Thursday, from 5:30 PM to 10:30 PM, Friday and Saturday, from 5:30 PM to 11:00 PM, and Sunday, from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM.  Limited seating is available, and reservations are recommended by calling (202) 659-3727 or online at
