While we have zero idea what about this place is paradoxical, it’s still an ideal spot for a better-than-takeout weeknight dinner when you want to drink wine but are trying to consume more than just cheese and olives. Indian Paradox is a small, very laid-back wine bar on Divis that has excellent Indian small plates and a super-friendly owner. Bonus points for being next to Powder if you need some dessert.
