India Comes to the Kennedy Center in March

As part of the Kennedy Center’s maximum INDIA festival, some special menu items will be available at Roof Terrace Restaurant and KC Café throughout the month of March to coincide with several exhibitions and performances.

It’s billed as “East meets West.”  Twelve chefs from India led by Chef Hemant Oberoi, the Executive Grand Chef of the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower in Mumbai, will fly in for a delicious collaboration with Roof Terrace Restaurant’s Executive Chef Joe Gurner.

Roof Terrace Restaurant will offer three, three-course prix-fixe menus, each priced at $65 per person, and the KC Café will feature a range of Indian foods a la carte style.  Diners who purchase the special items will get recipe cards, letting them recreate the dishes at home…too bad I can’t cook.

Menu items include Khurmai Aur Aloo Ki Tikki, potato and apricot cakes with tamarind dressing; Roti Pe Boti, spiced lamb on leavened bread; Kali Mirch Ka Murg, chicken with peppercorn and mint; and desserts like Masala Chai Kulfi, spiced tea ice cream; and Elaichi Gulab Jamun Crème Brulee.
