Bombay Chaat Corner stands as a culinary crossroads that connects the myriad roads of India. Here, chefs prepare dishes called chaat that are typically found at street-side stands and eaten as snacks. The menu is an amalgam of chaat from different regions, often garnished with an array of chutneys. Some items may be familiar to westerners, such as the ubiquitous samosa, stuffed with spiced potatoes and veggies. Then again, there's also the samosa chat, which is served in pieces, and the ragda samosa, which is accompanied by a hearty lentil soup. Sample the rice cakes in the idli sambhar's fiery stew for a taste of Southern India, or try a Mumbai staple, sev puri—crispy wafers topped with diced potatoes, onions, and crunchy noodles. If inspired to create their own chaat at home, guests can browse the shelves of the surrounding Indian supermarket for spices, produce, and guidebooks on how to hatch chickpeas.

As one of the world's most populous countries, India is home to nearly as many culinary traditions as it is people. Fortunately, the chef behind Zyka Indian Cuisine knows his way around a map. In the kitchen of this brand-new restaurant, he conjures flavors from around the subcontinent, from the clay-fired tandoori dishes of the north to the spicy vindaloos of the nation's western coast. After working at Indian restaurants across the United States, he's also developed a fondness for dishes such as the chicken tikka masala, which pairs the fire-kissed tastes of the tandoor with a creamy tomato sauce.

Curry powder, a blend of spices such as turmeric, coriander, and fenugreek seeds, is lauded for its curative properties; many Ayurvedic practitioners believe that it aids in digestion and detoxifies the body. At Shagor Indian Cuisine, chefs use the traditional spice blend to flavor a menu of recipes from across the Indian subcontinent. Options range from East Indian bhuna, an entree chock-full of garlic, ginger, veggies, and meat to tandoori chicken tenderized with yogurt and lemon juice. Diners may supply their own adult libations at this BYOB eatery or sip glasses of mango lassi, a yogurt-based beverage.

Inside the eatery, white tablecloths drape over tables, and yellow walls stand out brightly from white walls and a black ceiling like a bumblebee’s contrasting stripes—if the bumblebee just rolled in red paint, Shagor’s fourth major hue. Green plants and framed artwork fleck the flanks of the dining hall, where white pillars furnish both structural and aesthetic goodness.
