Garland, an Indian/Asian take-out window, in downtown Raleigh, has reopened after closing to create an indoor dining room and bar.
Chef and owner Cheetie Kumar, who grew up in India before moving to New York and then North Carolina, developed a following with her unique eatery operating in the same location as Kings, a downtown Raleigh bar and music venue on Martin Street. Kumar describes Garland as “a spice-driven seasonal restaurant with an Indian/Asian focus.”
The inside dining room is now open 6-11 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. The walk-up window will reopen for lunch and late night in the future, according to a press release.
“Using flavors and techniques gleaned from around the world, Garland's menu adds a twist to some familiar and local ingredients,” according to a press release. “Guests will find cuisine that is representative of India, southeast Asia, Korea and beyond.”
The bar program was developed by Brad Farran who returned to Raleigh after working at the Clover Club in Brooklyn and renowned cocktail bar Death + Company in Manhattan. The bar menu will include seasonal cocktails, wines and spirits.
