  • The Little India
    The chefs at The Little India, which has earned a feature as One of the Best in the Chicago Tribune, populate an expansive menu of Indian cuisine. Along with cooking up a vast array of vegan and vegetarian dishes, the chefs pack meaty entrees with only zabiha halal meat. Amid warm wood hues and floor-to-ceiling front windows, waiters unload starters of golden fried samosas and insulate homemade bread with succulent chicken, lamb, and fresh veggies. Sweet teeth sink into savory desserts such as sweet-potato custard, and the restaurant's BYOB policy encourages patrons to sip glasses poured from their own bottles of wine or jugs filled with bathtub moonshine.

  • Essence of India
    Much of the decor at Essence of India is imported directly from India, from the framed artwork and tapestries right down to the dinnerware. The cuisine is a direct transplant, too, specifically from North India. A tandoori oven cooks jumbo shrimp that have been marinated in caraway seeds and flavored yogurt, and Indian spices lend heat to the goan fish curry, though the chef can tailor the curries' spice level to the diner's preference. The warm-weather months are a particularly appealing time to visit, since diners can sip an Indian beer on the restaurant's outdoor patio without having to light their shoes on fire to keep warm.

  • Anna's Asian Grill and Sushi Bar
    Anna Makmok and her mother, Noy, have grown accustomed to sharing their contemporary pan-Asian cuisine with Chicagoans. In addition to helping found Thalia Spice, Anna and Noy have spread their influence by founding Anna's Asian Grill & Sushi Bar and Anna's Asian Bistro & Sushi Bar. The common theme uniting all of these restaurants is their eclectic cuisine, which consists of Thai, Japanese, Korean, Indian, and Laotian cooking featured alongside fare from other nations. Noy looks to put her own mark on these familiar recipes through experimentation. This leads to dishes such as the fried avocado stuffed with spicy tuna, which was featured on an episode of Chicago's Best. Choose Your Texture Crispy : fried calamari with indian curry sauce for dipping Tender : stir-fried mongolian steak that marinates in wine sauce alongside onion, scallion, bell pepper, and mushrooms Creamy : the philly sushi roll with smoked salmon, avocado, and cream cheese Crunchy : spicy crab rangoon Everything : barbecued duck with tomato and bell pepper in a coconut milk-based red thai curry BYOB Tips When pairing wine with spicier cuisines, it helps to pick something with a touch of sweetness, such as an off-dry riesling. The delicacy of sushi means that an equally delicate wine--think vinho verde for white or pinot noir for red--works well. For heartier, savory dishes, consider something with fruit-forward flavors and a bit more boldness: merlot. If all else fails, choose your favorite bottle of wine and enjoy.
