A Glass of Complimentary Bubbly Awaits Those Who Dine During the Month of December

In 1998, Ashok Bajaj of Knightsbridge Restaurant Group opened his first Washington restaurant upon his arrival to the city, The Bombay Club, located at 815 Connecticut Avenue, NW, one block from the White House. This December marks The Bombay Club’s milestone 30th birthday. Award-winning restaurateur Bajaj had to convince his landlord that the nation’s capital was ready for a fine dining Indian restaurant three decades ago, and today it is still considered one of the nation capitals’ best establishments. The Bombay Club’s success is also the catalyst for Bajaj’s successful restaurant collection, which now includes ten top-tier dining locations in the city including 701 Restaurant, Bibiana, Bindaas Cleveland Park, Bindaas Foggy Bottom, The Bombay Club, Nopa Kitchen + Bar, The Oval Room, Rasika, Rasika West End and SABABA.

A complimentary glass of Champagne will be presented to all guests who dine at the restaurant during the month of December. Additionally, for this diamond anniversary celebration, The Bombay Club will feature a $65 four-course, prix fixe menu showcasing a selection of classic Indian dishes during the entire month of December. These dishes have rotated on and off the restaurant’s menu since its opening, due to their popularity and requests by frequent guests. Prepared by Executive Chef Nilesh Singhvi, The Bombay Club’s anniversary menu will be available exclusively during dinner service and begins with an amuse of Truffle Rasam, followed by Squash Plti Samosa; Bhalla Papdi Chat and Mushroom Galouti. Next, diners can opt for the Dum Ka Lobster with almond, saffron, mace, cardamom and silver leaf or Palak Paneer Tikka with shitake, cumin, mint, yogurt and tomato before selecting a main course from options such as Kundan Kaliya, lamb chop with almond and nutmeg gold leaf & Chicken Firdausi with pomegranate, tomato, fenugreek and garam masala, served with yakhni pulao and sheermal; Squash Musallam with onion, yogurt, cashew, saffron & Nargisi Kofta, sweet potato, cheese, spinach, cumin, served with guchhi chigoza pulao and sheermal, or the Vegetarian Thali with zafrani paneer, dum ki gobi, bharwan aloo, khumbh palak and dal makhni, served with guchhi chigoza pulao and sheermal.
