Despite the challenges facing the restaurant industry, Northbrook is welcoming new eateries offering varied menus. Fans of Indian cuisine are looking forward to the imminent opening of Maharaj Indian Grill, and springtime will bring gourmet pizzas with wine pairings at Napolita Pizza and Wine Bar.
Maharaj Indian Grill transforms the former Bombay Bowl space from a casual buffet into a full service, fine dining destination. Owner Sonu Singh and his team bring years of restaurant experience in India, Chicago and elsewhere to the new venture. The menu offers popular northern Indian dishes that are both delicious and healthy. Sonu points out that a diet rich in spices like ginger, turmeric and garlic helps boost the immune system. The restaurant’s website allows for easy online ordering for carryout.
Renovations should begin soon for the new Napolita Pizza & Wine Bar, coming to the former Lucky Fish space at 1349 Shermer. This will be the second Napolita on the North Shore, with a similar menu to its Wilmette location. An added benefit in Northbrook will be the outdoor patio, which will be outfitted with its own wine bar and comfortable seating. Updates will also take place indoors, including the addition of two wood-fired pizza ovens. According to owner Nick Hynes, the purchase of the property will close in December and the restaurant should be ready to open by April.
