Chinese Mirch, an Indian-Chinese fusion restaurant with two locations in Manhattan (Murray Hill and the Upper East Side), will open in downtown Stamford according to Steve Matsis of Capital Restaurant Group, LLC.
Has anybody been to the Chinese Mirch in New York? What do you think?
FROM THE TIMES (2004):
Chinese Mirch is the first Manhattan restaurant to serve this strange but satisfying hybrid of two of the city’s favorite cuisines. Chinese-Indian food, like Chinese-Cuban and Chinese-American, took shape when a community of Chinese immigrants had to stretch its home cooking to accommodate a new environment and new ingredients. (The most notable adaptation on the menu at Chinese Mirch is its omission of pork and beef, which are forbidden, respectively, to Muslims and Hindus, the two dominant religious groups in India.)
