Vermilion Restaurant Review

: On paper, Vermilion --- which melds contemporary Indian food with a variety of Latin American cuisines --- sounds like a bad idea. But step inside this River North restaurant and you’ll find a sleek and stylish room filled with black-and-white photographs, modern leather couches and cozy booths. Then there’s the food, which includes dishes such as tandoori skirt steak with fresh pico de gallo, artichoke pakoras with eggplant-chili-coconut sauce and an Indian-seasoned Brazilian seafood stew. Somehow, the menu manages to combine flavors and ingredients from very diverse cuisines in ways that truly work --- at least much of the time. You can always opt for small plates from the tapas menu, too. Vegetarians are welcome here --- they even get their own menu.
