Sutra, the new restaurant by former Samar chef Vijay Sadhu, isn’t scheduled to open in The Shops at Legacy until November at the earliest. However, I’ve procured a rendering of the interior design. Sutra will be next to Sambuca and feature modern Indian cuisine.
The restaurant, designed by Robert Romano, features an open kitchen where guests can view the Tandoori master preparing kabobs and Indian breads. Décor is modern with Indian accents. In contrast to most Indian restaurants around town, Sutra will feature an active bar scene with a line of house-developed cocktails such as Sutra Martini, Bollywood Margarita, and Rajasthan Lassi Samplers. Indian wines (a booming industry) will also be available.
The menu is still taking shape but we can exclusively reveal menu specialties to be served the first time in Dallas. Jump for them!
Cochin Squids with Fresh ginger and costal spice
Goan Crab Cakes with cumin Avacado Salad and Spiced Tamarind Jam in Papadum shell
Kovalam Strip bass with cilantro coconut rice and lemon sauce
Rajastani Rabbit Tikka
Among the unconventional ingredients Sadhu will use are sandalwood, dehydrated fruits, dehydrated rose petals, and gold and silver leaves.
It should be an interesting taste! Stay tuned for details as they develop .
