Mmm...Fusion...

Chris Preovolos has shed some light on the artist formerly known as Galangal, reporting that the space's new tenant will be a Chinese-Indian fusion restaurant called Chinese Mirch.

According to the website, the name means spicy Chinese in Hindi. Images of the NY location show a staid but elegant dining room. Eye catching items on the menu include chicken lollipops and crispy okra.

Called the NY location to see when we can expect open doors, and they could only use words like "soon" and "in the works." In their defense though, they said "ma'am" about 5 times. If you're going to not know stuff, it's good that you can do it politely.

Hey, Notes - if you want to know what to expect, go to ChiliChicken in Bull's Head (in the former Tawa space) - also a Chinese-Indian blend. They too have Chicken lollies and crispy okra! Been twice and it's pretty good (not as great as Tawa was, though).

Chinese Mirch? I think I grouted my bathroom tiles with that once. Stamford probably didn't need one Chinese Indain fusion restaurant, but now we are blessed with two. I'm predicting they're both closed in 18 months.

Why is it that the grumpiest and least spell checked comments always come from "Anonymous"...?

This is ever-so-slightly off topic, but I'm just back from dinner at Barcelona. 1/2 price bottles of wine on Sundays!!! Myself and a friend shared a bottle of wine and 5 tapas plates -- for under $60 (before tip). That is hard to beat!
