Kama proves that the suburbs have more to offer than perfectly manicured lawns and neighbors who cordially hate you. This La Grange Indian restaurant opened a Wicker Park location, serving familiar staples like vindaloo and malai kofta, plus Indian-adjacent dishes like paneer ravioli. And most of the menu is successful. The tikka masala is fantastic, with a creamy, smoky tomato base and chicken so tender you can just poke it and it falls apart. But some dishes are too mild, and others too one-note—for example, gulab jamun that tastes like it sat in a bathtub of bourbon for 24 hours. The dark, moody walls and tufted leather banquettes might inspire you to drink bourbon anyway, and they help make the place feel more fancy than your average neighborhood restaurant. Keep Kama in mind next time you need a nice place to eat tandoori sea bass with a friend you’re trying to ease back into city life.
