When Nicholas Fernandes and Joseph Alvares arrived in America from

their native Goa, they had a singular vision: open an Indian restaurant celebrating

the distinct culinary traditions of their homeland. The Indian coastal state is

known for its vindaloo, and Viva Goa''s versions of the spicy palm vinegar curry

have garnered nods from critics at the San Francisco

Bay Guardian and the San Francisco Chronicle,

among others Seafood entrees steeped in fresh coconut, tamarind, and chiles reflect

Goa''s seaside location and colonization by the Portuguese, who, according to the

San Francisco Bay Guardian, brought that fiery final ingredient to the Indian subcontinent.

A clay tandoori oven seals marinade into morsels of meat, and fires bread for sopping

up ginger- and coriander-rich curries, which may be prepared vegan on request. Sunny,

yellow walls evoke Goan days, and jewel-toned glasses of wine and beer mimic the

region''s sunsets, known for beginning with showers of semi-precious stones.
