Grand Trunk Road
- Complimentary chef's choice appetizer when you dine at the restaurant
Grand Trunk Road is a main thoroughfare that links India and Pakistan, and Chef Behzad Khan invites you to follow that path at his new Lincoln Park restaurant, which he opened with his wife Basma Arain in December 2018. Chef Khan, who was born in New Delhi and who worked at Moto in Fulton Market and at Rick Bayless’ Michelin-starred Topolobampo, envisioned a modern Indian restaurant that would incorporate influences from different areas of southeast Asia. In realizing this vision, Chef Khan goes beyond traditional dishes like chicken tikka masala to create innovative new ones like naan stuffed with blue cheese, goat biryani, and blueberry lassi. At the same time, Grand Trunk Road is the proud possessor of a tandoor, which signifies authenticity in turning out savory dishes like mint-crusted tandoori lamb chops.
