Neighborly welcome

An incipient Indian restaurant in our neighborhood has had a "Coming Soon" sign on it for the entire time we've lived in the area. It was a mystery to us: when would "soon" arrive? For the past few months, finally, there've been workmen making changes to the boarded up site. And today, at long last, "soon" arrived.

Veranda celebrated its finally-arrived existence with a launch party this evening, welcoming in the neighborhood in style. Kir royales, garnished with a strawberry, and a lovely mango liquor mixed with a milder sparkling wine, greeted visitors arriving to check it out. The menu looks promising - all the usual Indian staples, plus plenty of other dishes which aren't all-the-usual-things.
