Tikka & Grill

Many Americans are stuck in a rut when it comes to Indian food, and if chicken tikka masala and saag paneer are as adventurous as you want to get, Tikka & Grill's takes are exemplary, full of fragrant spices and depth. But you can also dig further into Indian — and Nepali — cuisine at this spot. The street-food section of the menu offers the chance to experience the textures and bright, fresh flavor of dishes like bhel puri. Momo — Nepali dumplings — are a draw as well, as are a slew of curries and other dishes that will expand your taste horizons.
