GOLDEN TRIANGLE: 2nd Location for Indian Street Food Restaurant Bindaas - 2017

Ashok Bajaj of Knightsbridge Restaurant Group has announced the October, 2017 opening of a new, second Bindaas, at The Shops at 2000 PENN, 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. This second location will be a larger interpretation at 3,300-square feet, in comparison to 50-seat sister restaurant Bindaas in Cleveland Park, which opened in August 2016 at 3309 Connecticut Avenue, next door to Ardeo.       
“The name Bindaas originated in India in 1993 and means independent, cool and carefree, showcasing innovative Indian street food,” states Ashok Bajaj. “The location is an ideal one for Bindaas, as it is close to the George Washington University campus in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood and the World Bank. After the positive feedback from patrons and excellent reviews in The Washington Post and Washingtonian, we are encouraged and believe the community will be supportive of this sister restaurant.”
At the new location, guests can anticipate savory snacks, kebabs, with vegetarian options as well as pork, fish, chicken and beef street food dishes that are easy on the wallet and priced from $9 to $14. For libations, one will find an international wine list, Indian beers and whiskey selections, along with craft cocktails reflecting the spirits and spices of India. A dining experience at Bindaas ranges in the $40 to $45 per person price point.  A small sampling from Group Executive Chef Vikram Sunderman’s opening menu will include dishes such as Pathar Gosht, a lamb kebab cooked on a stone oven served over a bed of saffron rice with saffron and cashews, Uttapam, a fermented rice pancake with lentils and shrimp pepper; Bhel Puri, a Bombay seaside snack with raw mangoes, lentils, puffed rice which is sweet and savory, and a wrap, the Kati Roll with Goan Pork.
