Taste of India
Taste Of India’s outdoor dining situation covers half of an entire city block, with a massive pergola and a dorm room’s worth of string lights. It feels more like someone’s calm backyard set-up than a restaurant in the middle of Roosevelt Way. This pergola is perfect for an impromptu group dinner on a warm night.
It's a well-oiled machine here—perfectly crisp (and complimentary) potato and pea samosas arrive soon after you take your seat, and food from the massive menu comes out quickly, too. Don't miss the tandoori wings, silky butter chicken, shimla paneer, or the absolute star of Taste Of India: coconut curry with fish so tender that you could enjoy it even without teeth.
