6-Course Inventive Indian Dinner Event
This new-ish (July 2019) Indian restaurant on Logan Square is far from the same old thing. Traditional dishes like samosas and tikka masala, tasty as those may be, are not featured on this menu. Instead, Executive Chefs/Co-Owners Zeeshan Shah, a Chicago native from a large Indian family, and Yoshi Yamada, born and raised in New York City, take Indian cuisine in entirely new directions. Here, you will find innovations like butter chicken calzone, which is a savory pastry pocket stuffed with chicken in a spiced tomato sauce, as well as chili-cheese naan, palak pizza, and braised coconut kale. The Chicago Tribune salutes “dishes you can’t get anywhere else” and says that “Superkhana offers a look at Indian cuisine that Chicago has never experienced before.” We will be taking over the restaurant for this event, and Chefs Shah and Yamada will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss their personal journeys as innovators in the world of food.
