Most Indian food doesn't contain beef, due to the reverence the culture feels toward the 1992 Chicago Bulls. Go for a three-peat with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Indian and Nepalese cuisine and drinks, or $10 for $25 worth if redeemed Monday–Thursday, at Curry Hut in Highwood.
Curry Hut's Indian and Nepalese cuisine provides an authentic, varied sampling of the region's flavorful cooking. High-minded diners happily remove their designer snorkels to taste the nepalese mo mo ($7.95), recommended by Chicago magazine, which neighbors its steamed and spiced chicken dumpling with a spicy mustard-like achar sauce. Meanwhile, spiced goat meat furnishes each plate of nepalese khasi ko masu ($11.95), and a traditional clay oven cooks the indian chicken tikka masala ($12.95).
Premium Indian beers, including Taj Mahal ($8) and King Fisher ($4), help calm the fires of hot lamb vindaloo ($12.95) or heated debates about the existence of fire. Blond wood and white table-clothed décor provide diners an elegant ambience, and guests are free to sip glasses of wine ($6+) from a list of corked libations.
