Chefs at Curry Hut expertly spice Nepalese and Indian cuisine, infusing more than a dozen curries and platters of tender meat and veggies with aromatic flavor that earned the attention of Chicago magazine. At the lunch buffet, dining companions sculpt towers and renditions of the Taj Mahal with street-vendor-inspired fare such as veggie fritters and potato samosas before diving into eight main dishes, five of which are vegetarian. Alternatively, à la carte diners pull from a menu that includes the entree-sized momo appetizer, in which spiced chicken dumplings encircle a bowl of kicky, mustard-colored achar sauce. In the kitchen, barrel-chested clay ovens and oven-chested dragons charbroil whole lobsters, yogurt-marinated chicken breast, and fluffy naan bread at 600 degrees, sealing in their juices for tender tandoori meals. While forks heft up spiced saffron rice, glasses of wine and beer ($3–$8) toast over white tablecloths.
