BOCA RATON — An eclectic Indian restaurant opened its doors at downtown Boca Raton’s Royal Palm Place plaza.
Tanjore Indian Cuisine, which offers a modern twist on Southwest Indian staples, opened last month in place of Sapphire Indian Cuisine at Royal Palm Place, the shopping plaza at Federal Highway south of Palmetto Park Road.
Chef Yogi Dhwale and restauranteur Chris Corda partnered to create the new-age restaurant, which boasts a menu of unique appetizers and entrees with several vegetarian and vegan options. The menu includes classic Indian dishes of seafood, lamb, chicken and vegetables, and a lengthy list of wines and cocktails.
Dhwale spent 12 years perfecting Indian recipes while serving them at a snack shop in Bombay, according to a news release from the restaurant. That’s where Dhwale’s passion “evolved into an enthusiastic desire to bring a true taste of India to Florida,” the release reads.
With crisp white walls and cobalt blue furniture and linens, the restaurant has an canopied outdoor patio and indoor dining room.
On top of serving lunch and dinner everyday, Tanjore also offers brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 to 2:30 p.m.
