Upscale new Indian restaurant in Irving will create some enchanted evenings
A new Indian restaurant from a pair of industry veterans is opening in Las Colinas: Sanjh , an elevated restaurant paying homage to 3,500 years of Indian cuisines, will open at 5250 N. O'Connor Blvd. #146 in Irving. That's a lot of years of cuisine.
According to a release, it'll open in late 2023.
Sanjh is from Dallas entrepreneur Sanjay Joshi and Prob Arora, who was co-owner of The Saffron House, the acclaimed Indian restaurant that was in Addison for 14 years.
Sanjh means "evenings" in Hindi, and is the inspiration behind the concept.
"In India, evenings are celebrated very differently for everyone, from North to South India and everywhere in between," Joshi says in a statement. "We hope that guests will celebrate their evenings, or sanjh, with us as it is celebrated in India."
They're going into the space that was previously home to the Ginger Man, which moved a few doors down.
They're still in design phase, but are planning a modern space with a neutral palette and clean lines that avoids assumptions of how an Indian restaurant should be designed. No plastic red roses stapled to the wall.
They're adding a second floor, and it'll be a double-height space that will feel light and airy during the day, with a warm glow at night, highlighted by a shimmery gold ceiling feature. That sounds worth a visit alone.
Details on the food are still to come but will involve exotic spices, seasonal ingredients, and traditional cooking techniques from across India’s many regions.
“We want our guests to discover Indian food as you’ve never tasted it before, complete with decadent desserts and artisan cocktails crafted by world-class bartenders,” says Arora. “Our goal is for our guests to experience the cuisine that fed emperors and kings alike."
