Beneath modern hanging lights in the shape of elongated fez hats, two-top and four-top tables load up with casual Indian, Pakistani, and Mediterranean meals formed of only zabiha halal ingredients. Dips such as baba ghanouj and hummus take the edge off hunger as diners await plates of gyro and shawarma-inspired pizzas, as well as flame-kissed kebabs featuring chicken, beef, and repurposed pencils.
When deciding what type of cuisine to eat, it’s not uncommon to use the word “or”: Italian or Thai, burgers or sushi. But at Indian Wok, no such choice needs to be made, and no coins nor tables need to be flipped as the deciding vote. Here, chefs have fused the foods from Indian and Chinese cultures into one super cuisine known as Indo-Chinese. They toss batter-fried chicken with Manchurian sauce, and cook marinated spicy-and-sour lamb with potatoes to create the lamb vindaloo. Vegetarian selections include saag paneer, which features freshly chopped spinach and cheese cubes in a creamy sauce. But guests needn’t limit themselves to one plate: they can also stop by for an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet that showcases Indo-Chinese flavors alongside specialties from both the northern and southern sides of the subcontinent.
At Red Dot Cuisine, crabmeat cocktails garnished with mango caviar arrive at tables with an unexpected twist: the cocktail glass serves as the top of a mini fish bowl, with an actual goldfish inside doing laps. It's just one of the creative touches that make Red Dot's upscale bistro into a dining experience. The bar, lunch, and dinner menus combine Indian and American cuisine elements, yielding dishes such as the tandoori turkey panini with cranberry-flavored mayo. Specialty cocktails such as lychee martinis and tamarind mojitos complement meals, and an eclectic roster of desserts includes raspberry chocolate cake and fried Oreos with Shiner Bock ice cream.
At Kababi Zaytoon Mediterranean Restaurant, the scent of crispy fried falafel blends with the sounds of chicken, kofta, and beef kabob sizzling to perfection. Tender lamb chops and flaky tilapia filets send hungry stomachs rumbling with anticipation, with freshly squeezed carrot, pineapple, and watermelon juice on hand to cleanse the palate. Crystal chandeliers cast a constellation of warm light over slate counters and walls of dark, varnished wood, while a stone fountain decorated with leafy ferns bubbles gently and invites guests to make wishes for an endless supply of baklava.
At Kabab Kahani, grill masters skewer sustainably sourced, certified halal morsels of Indian- and Mediterranean-style meats, creating lamb kebabs, tandoori chicken, and gyros. The eatery also adheres to eco-friendly business practices such as recycling dinnerware and transforming leftovers into chicken feed. Guests can settle into the dining area’s vibrant red booths to gobble down falafel and lamb chops, or hop across the black-and-white-checkered floor in a game of human chess.
