Good Indian Downtown Chicago
Looking for really good indian food in the downtown area. Fine dining suggestions please!
For Indian Fusion, you could try Vermillion, although I have never been there so can't vouch for the quality.
For more traditional, India House is good, but I wouldn't call it fine dining.
Although I quite like Indian food, if I were looking for fine dining in downtown Chicago, I might try something else.
Actually, India House could pass as fine dining, somewhat upscale. I have taken business clients there (one was from London) for dinner- anyway, the English guy absolutely loved the place, thought it was the best Indian he has ever digested in his 47 years of life. However, the Indian Garden on Ohio (I think it's on that street, maybe better double-check on it) is a little on the rattier side, more modest- still clean (well, perception wise) and excellent palak paneer...few dollars cheaper than the India House.
The best Indian I have had is not downtown and not fine dining, but rather neighborhood places on Devon St. Bhabi's Kitchen is very good, as is Hema's, which also has a location in Lincoln Park. I have not heard of Indian downtown that I would describe as fine dining; I agree that India House would be the closest match.
