  • Chaat Paradise
    Chaat Paradise takes its name from a celebrated Indian street-food tradition, hinting at the colorful smorgasbord of small plates and delicacies found on the restaurant’s menu. Predating modern America's tapas and food-truck crazes by several decades, chaat traces its origins to the markets and roadsides of northern India, where travelers would satisfy their hunger with savory bites of masalas, samosas, and paneer. Along with the restaurant's extensive snack menu, a delicious array of flatbread feasts and vegetarian entrees tempts diners with meat-less curries, creamy dals, and paratha loaves stuffed with $20 bills.

    Sakoon: A User’s Guide Michelin Guide Recommended | Native Indian Owner | Stuffed Naan Bread | Specialty Curries | Modern Decor Sample Menu Bread: rosemary and garlic naan Meat entree: butter chicken Vegetarian entree: paneer peshawari Dessert: gajar halwa About the Space: Carved into wooden panels, the familiar figure of Buddha greets guests as they enter Sakoon, where fiber-optic chandeliers cast a glow over the modern decor and a waterfall that ends in a pool of lotus petals. Meet the Team: Owner Balkar S. Tamber was born in the small Indian town of Khanoor, where he grew up with a passion for cooking. His fellow chef at Sakoon, Alex Paul Xalxo, also has a fire in his belly when it comes to food. In fact, Mr Xalxo started his career at India’s Hotel Juhu Centaur in Mumbai, where his clients included such guests as President Bill Clinton. Press and Praise: In its recommendation for the restaurant, Michelin Guide says "Sakoon draws big techie crowds for its lunch buffet—and transforms into an upscale, contemporary dinnertime experience come sundown."

Gajar Halwa: a North Indian and Pakistani sweet pudding made from grated carrots cooked in a pot with water, milk, and sugar.

  • The Menu
    Taking diners on a journey through the regions of India, the artisan cuisine at The Menu runs the culinary gamut from sizzling tandoori chicken to fluffy naan, each dish composed of fresh, organic, and healthful ingredients. Puffy samosas and crispy kale pakoda are lightly fried in grape-seed oil, while curries are prepared with almonds and other nuts to create a rich, creamy consistency free from the fattiness of cream. These cooking practices are part of The Menu’s commitment to promoting organic food and healthy sustainable living as an active member of the organic movement. In addition to earth-friendly food, part of The Menu’s mission is to be a positive and hands-on member of their community and support local schools and charities through fundraising and nutritional food dives. Spanning 10,000 square feet, The Menu's interior includes a dining room, wine bar, full stage, and private banquette hall for up to 150 people. On Thursday evenings, the sounds of live jazz fill the expansive space, delighting guests and the hot-air-balloon pilots who transported them there.
