Bon Appétit listed this Chicago spot as the best new restaurant of 2023, and we couldn’t agree more.
We’ve already written about how this unique Indian restaurant in Chicago is inventive yet satisfyingly delicious. It might be the most appetizing meal you’ll have this year. It also happened to be the best new restaurant in the country, according to Bon Appétit.
Situated River North, Indienne resides in a 19th-century printing warehouse. The converted timber loft was conceptualized by Chef Sujan Sakar and his determination to redefine traditional Indian cuisine.
Kate Kassin writes, “In Sarkar’s rendition of yogurt chaat, tangy yogurt is transformed into both an airy mousse and wobbly panna cotta. Each element of the dish, which is topped with a wispy potato nest and dots of chutney, brings a surprising burst of flavor and texture.”
This convivial yet upscale setting offers a seasonal tasting menu experience. As recommended by Bon Appetit, there are two six-course seasonal tasting menus to choose from: one with meat ($120) and one without ($110). However, there is another option should you be swayed from the tasting menu. They also offer an à la carte menu for any patron. It’s filled with delectable items such as the Yogurt Chat and Chicken Malai Tikka.
