San Francisco-based Curry Up Now and its cocktail bar are opening in a Dallas suburb known as The Colony.
“Dallas has become a food destination, and there are so many amazing new restaurants here,” CEO Akash Kapoor said in a company press release. “Curry Up Now will thrive in this market, which is why we plan to open another twenty restaurants throughout the Lone Star state. A distinct location paired with a group of idyllic partners sets our team up for incredible success in this market. We’re eager for guests to try our globally inspired food and a serious craft cocktail bar, Mortar and Pestle. We take our bar program at Mortar & Pestle as seriously as our food which lets our bar stand out on its own. We have 16 expertly and lovingly crafted cocktails, a very well-curated spirit list and beer that guests can enjoy including over two dozen spirits from India. Our food is naturally Texas friendly, and I can’t be more excited to open restaurants all over the great state of Texas.”
Curry Up Now hit the scene in 2009 as a food truck founded by Kapoor and his wife, Rana. The menu features “authentic Indian flavors with a naughty, playful and sexy twist,” Akash said in the release.
Signature dishes include burritos, bowls, tacos, sexy fries, naughty naan and other Indian Street food and snacks.
“We have been looking forward to opening our newest location in such a vibrant and active community and are thrilled to see it come to fruition,” Veer Modi, Grandscape franchisee, said in the release. “The entire Curry Up Now team is ready to bring high-quality food and a new, energetic atmosphere to the city. Welcome in!”
The Colony location features a large indoor dining area, two dog-friendly outdoor patios, a lounge and bar.
