Indigma Restaurant Review

: Longtime Marylanders will remember the Bombay Grill empire and its many outposts of fine Indian dining. Eventually, the empire-building business got to be too much for chef/proprietor Tony Chemmanoor, who has returned to the Mount Vernon Square building that hosted his first Grill. However, instead of the cozy downstairs room he once occupied, this time he has the Victorian brownstone’s opulent upstairs floors at his command. And they are Rajah-worthy. The dining rooms, which sport soaring ceilings, chandeliers, intricate moldings and marble fireplaces, have been given subcontinental pizzazz with a vivid palette of saffron and rose. Indigma’s (India/enigma) “Modern Indian” food is also a cut above, with subtle spice blends, creative chef’s specialties, and regional dishes ranging from South India to the Himalayas. (Only the ventures into China overreach; does anyone enter an Indian restaurant with a yen for pork chow mein?) The lunch buffet, offered six days a week, is generous, with a broad assortment of vegetarian and meat dishes, and a chutney bar.
