Off the Cuff

This was news to me, but Starbucks opened its first store in India, a cavernous two-story space in a swanky Mumbai neighborhood.  Here are some pictures from the store; looks more luxe than the Starbucks I visit here!  The menu is tailored to Indian tastes, featuring items like Chicken Tikka Panini, Elaichi Mawa Croissant, and Tamarind Peanut Chicken Calzone. “The trademark Chai Tea Latte is in the menu,” say Meghan Bahree and Margherita Stancati at The Wall Street Journal, “although… to Indian ears, this [translates as] ‘tea tea latte.'”
