Rangoli Restaurant Review

: If the queue at Vij’s doesn't appeal, simply slip into next-door Rangoli for a casual take on Vikram Vij and Meeru Dhalwala’s imaginative Indian fare. This relaxed café welcomes guests with options for sit-down dining or upscale takeaway. Try the lamb, chickpeas and potatoes in yogurt-date curry; marinated tilapia in ground fennel and cumin curry; or the spicy pulled pork on sautéed greens with sour cream chutney and naan. Desserts are also worthy of attention: coconut pudding with fruit, and the meeti roti (a custard-coated chapati with demerara sugar and cashews). A concise, thoughtfully curated beer selection and wine list complements aromatic Indian flavors. For convenient at-home meals, large refrigerators and freezers beckon with vacuum-packed pouches of take-away curries, saags, vegetarian entrées and dumplings. Rangoli’s market section also carries freshly roasted and ground Indian spices, Vij's rice pudding, chai caramels, and special Thomas Haas chocolate bars.
