After twenty years of slinging naan against the tandoori oven at 3333 South Tamarac Drive, Krishan Kapoor, the owner of India's, spent the majority of his summer schlepping that oven and pretty much everything else from the restaurant's former digs to his new space at 7400 East Hampden Avenue, in Tiffany Plaza.
And last Thursday, Kapoor finally saw his efforts come to fruition, since that was the night the new India's opened for business -- much of it repeat business, according to Kapoor. "We opened for dinner Thursday night and saw so many familiar faces," Kapoor said. "We were packed and it was crazy, but I think everything went really well and we got great response from our customers about the new space." A space that's modern and big, with soaring ceilings, floating blocks of white, lots of light wood, a decent-sized bar area and a behemoth dining room for private parties.
