Indique Restaurant Review: A flashy and upscale eatery, Indique (unique Indian) puts a contemporary spin on traditional Indian cooking, using arty ceramics, stylized food presentation and minimalist portions, some offered tapas-style. Even the décor --- an upstairs dining room with tables arranged around an open central well in the floor for an upstairs/downstairs effect --- is understated and almost stark. The menu is fanciful, thanks to the creativity of chef K.N. Vinod, who takes Indian flavors and textures and melds them into something new, such as his achari chicken taco as an appetizer. Tandoori dishes and curries are outstanding; try the braised lamb shank or the just-fiery lamb vindaloo. Or you can go vegetarian with one of Vinod’s many options, from roasted eggplant to the cubes of homemade cheese, called paneer. Sample one of the numerous cocktails, including the rum mango lassi.
