"We've been doing this for some time," Prodduturi says, "so we're getting good at it."
And that's what Red India is about. It's a bistro, after all—housed in what I believe was the old Go Fish space, which is right next to the old Monica's space (now known as Café Brazil). The room hasn't changed that much, but the service is more encouraging, and much younger. Indeed, one evening presentation of my check was delayed while two servers, both students, debated that afternoon's quiz.
I was the only one in the place that particular time, apart from a gentleman who's radiator exploded in the parking lot, leaving him with nothing to do but eat and wait. My waiter on another visit claimed crowds swoop in after 7 p.m. on weeknights. I could have made off with a drawer full of silverware and some real cloth napkins. Instead, I waited...waited...waited...and finally went around the corner to wake the cook, who lolled with his head on the bar.
Oh, well. It's Red India Bistro—an inexpensive and not too bad way to sample pan-Asian-American kinda fusion served in India. You may even want to sing an old jingle on your way home.
