Indian Bread Bar
Coral hues and sedimentary stone walls surround patrons at Indian Bread Bar, where the kitchen creates casually inventive Indian cuisine. Inside, a team of highly skilled and professionally trained chefs from India craft authentic dishes with a combination of authentic Indian herbs and spices. After walking between tied-back rose-and-gold curtains, parties alight at red and ochre tables and dine on starters such as beef-masala sliders and butter chicken poutine. Chartreuse plates host entrees of tamatar wali halibut seared in a garlicky tomato broth or curries such as the coastal-prawn curry, which swims in coconut milk amid spices of mustard seeds, curry leaves, and tamarind. Diners can choose to inside the dining room, where paintings hang on white walls, or sit out on the patio to catch a fresh breeze.
