MT8848 Bar & Grill
MT8848 Bar & Grill's name gives a subtle hint as to its chefs' lofty ambitions. The number 8848 stands for the height of Mount Everest in kilometers, but this isn't necessarily a geographic indicator of the restaurant's focus. Although the highly eclectic menu does feature a sizable number of Indian and Nepalese cuisine, it also incorporates a variety of French, American, and East Asian flavors at the same time. This leads to eclectic dishes from their European trend Chef J. Thomas, such as traditional french onion soup, chicken tikka masala and beef rogan josh appearing alongside blackened Alaskan salmon with Cajun spices as well as crispy duck breast with a vibrant dash of ginger.
All of these meals are prepared within full view of the diners courtesy of the restaurant's open kitchen. This modern touch is echoed by the high-ceilinged dining room's collection of dark wooden tables and sleek metal chairs. Planks of wood line one entire wall, adding a hint of rusticity amid the space's contemporary use of glass and metal accents.
