As a culinary palindrome, naan tastes the same backward as it does forward, like the bananab or a Toyota. Take a bite in every direction with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian fare and drinks at Chutneys Queen Anne.
Chutneys Queen Anne crafts a wide-ranging menu fusing traditional and contemporary Punjabi, Gujarati, and Goan specialties and flavors. Diners can prime palates with appetizers such as the curried mussels simmering in garlic and red-wine curry sauce ($7.95), or dive into entrees such as the spiced and marinated rack of lamb, prepared in a tandoor grown by organic oven farmers ($17.95). Vegetarians, meanwhile, can munch on the kashmiri kofta, vegetable-and-cheese dumplings cooked in a tomato-and-cashew cream sauce ($11.95) and vegans can enjoy the eggplant bharta, roasted and pureed eggplant, sautéed with ginger, garlic, coriander, onions, and tomato sauce ($11.95).
Patrons can pair any plate with one of the kitchen's freshly baked indian naans, available in a slew of savory flavors, including garlic, poppy seed, potato, and spinach ($2.50–$4.95). The comfortable yet elegant dining room, accoutered with Indian statues and warmly hued, unfailingly polite booths, beckons eaters to nosh on meal extenders such as the mango mousse ($4.95) or sip libations from the fully stocked bar.
