A newly opened Indian restaurant in Dupont Circle could soon add alcohol to the menu.
Lemon Cuisine of India which opened at 2120 P St. NW last month, has applied to start serving alcohol, according to a recent filing with D.C.’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA).
The restaurant is seeking to serve beer, wine and cocktails, according to owner and chef Gurjeet Singh.
Lemon Cuisine’s dinner menu includes Indian cuisine mainstays such as chicken tikka masala, palak paneer and six types of biryani.
“I’m using my own spices that I create,” Singh said in November. “All made from scratch, all fresh and healthy.”
There’s a new spot for chicken tikka masala and palak paneer in Dupont Circle.
An offshoot of Richmond’s Lemon Cuisine of India opened at 2120 P St. NW earlier today. The new restaurant occupies the space once filled by Crios Modern Mexican, which closed in February.
The eatery serves Indian fare “made from scratch,” said owner and chef Gurjeet Singh.
A walk through the restaurant’s menu reveals crowd-pleasers like chicken tikka masala, palak paneer and six types of biryani. Diners can also order tandoori-roasted lamb, shrimp and several types of naan.
“I’m using my own spices that I create,” Singh said. “All made from scratch, all fresh and healthy.”
Lemon Cuisine will also serve beer, wine and cocktails as soon as it gets its liquor license, Singh added.
This is the first expansion of the Richmond Indian restaurant, but likely not the last. A Lemon Cuisine of India branch is also scheduled to open soon in Los Angeles.
A new Indian restaurant is set to open near Dupont Circle.
An offshoot of Richmond’s Lemon Cuisine of India will arrive in the former Crios space at 2120 P St. NW in about a month, according to an assistant manager with the company.
Signs for the forthcoming restaurant went up some time within the past week.
Lemon Cuisine of India serves a menu that includes dishes such as chicken tikka masala, lamb biryani and goat mushroom curry. The eatery was named by Style Weekly readers as Richmond’s best Indian restaurant in 2014 and 2015.
