East India Co Grill & Bar Restaurant Review: A long, comfortable bar serves as the narrow entryway to East India. It’s where a crush of downtown workers chat up the friendly bartender while enjoying sweet and herbal masala mojitos and madrasi margaritas, plus Indian snacks such as tandoori grilled chicken wings or flaky vegetable fritters. Push through the crowd and the space opens into a dining room with dark wood and a soaring ceiling, plush upholstered banquettes, and the earthy hues of the spice trade. Lunch is limited to three set menus. Dinner features a lengthy list of Indian classics ranging from butter chicken to tikka masala, and vindaloo (spicy Goan curries) to spicy-sweet biryanis. Many dishes may be ordered with a choice of chicken, fish or paneer (Indian cheese), as well as vegetarian. Breads are baked fresh in the tandoor. Pair your meal with a well-conceived cocktail or something from the carefully chosen wine list. Indian and local beers are available, too. Dessert is not a focal point, but if you have a sweet tooth, order the gulab jamun, chewy donuts bathed in an exotic sugar syrup and served warm with vanilla ice cream.
