To enhance your dining experience, our sommelier will be happy to pair appropriate wines with your food selections.
One of the best restaurants in DC! If you like Indian food this is absolutely a must try. It is Modern Indian food. This place is so popular that they opened a second location in the West End side of the city. I always get the Palak Chat appetizer. Such a simple but delicious dish. I always get this whenever I go. Every dish I have tried here is good. Make sure to make reservations if you want to go as it is always busy. You can always walk in and try to get a bar seat or lounge table.
Chef Vikram Sunderam upends notions of typical Indian food with modern, spice-packed dishes like lobster peri-peri, duck korma and a crisp spinach salad that's been on every critic's best dish list since the restaurant's opening in 2005.
