But for now: your wish for an Indian restaurant where you can also order gyros, falafel and kung pao chicken is now a reality.
The name of this wonderland: Bombay Bliss, a new BYOB corner spot in Lakeview, now open.
This is from the people behind the Little India in Edgewater. It’s another mom-and-pop operation, and there’s that same friendly, comfortable vibe about the place. Tile floors, red accent walls, gold-tinted mirrors and some art deco paintings of flappers. Think of it as a Bollywood version of The Great Gatsby. Give or take $100 million.
This is perfect for those weeknight, low-stakes dinners—or when you just want some delivery and you’re not feeling very picky. At first you’ll focus on the classics. There’s some naan here, some tandoori chicken there, a little saag paneer...
But by the time someone comes over to pop the cork on the bottle of riesling you brought, you’ll have realized that they also have non-Indian options. Thai spicy chicken. Shrimp ceviche. Gyros. Chicken fajitas.
Might wanna pack a bottle of tequila, too.
