Guru Restaurant & Bar
Deependra Singh became passionate about cooking while growing up in his hometown of Jaipur, India. The executive chef of Guru Restaurant & Bar enriches each dish with unexpected flavours and artful presentation, which earned him a silver medal at the 2011 Gold Medal Plates competition. Guru’s dinner menu holds a smorgasbord of traditional Indian fare—including housemade garlic naan, shrimp curry, tandoori chicken, and several vegetarian items—whereas an oft-changing lunch menu offers a smaller selection of more unusual dishes such as naan paninis. In addition to a mocha-toned dining room and a summertime patio, the eatery rents two private dining areas that can entertain 8–22 guests with televisions, audio-visual equipment, and holograms of flying elephants.
