Chef Vikram Sunderam, a Bombay native, came to The District after working in one of London’s most acclaimed Indian restaurants, Bombay Brasserie. At Rasika, Sunderam brings his own modern take on traditional Indian cuisine. The menu has such dishes as tandoori lamb chops, chicken biryani, and chicken green masala. The restaurant, which takes its name from the Sanskirt word meaning flavors, is divided into several distinct dining areas, including the showcase kitchen, a community dining table, and the main dining room. Original paintings by Arunabha Karmakar and sculptures by Vineet Kacker accent the space.

Insider Tip:

Come early and have a few drinks at the bar before dinner. The restaurant is known for having original and seasonal cocktials.
