Bits and bites: Lee Indian restaurant has new name, look


Newly 'Minted'

If you're driving past Laurel Lake in Lee and you notice a new sign out front of what was formerly known as Bombay, don't worry, you can still get classic Indian cuisine at the restaurant.

Bombay is now "minty fresh" as renovations are complete and the result is a new look and a new name. Mint Indian Lakeside Dining at Black Swan Inn Berkshires is open for business.
