ROOH Promises a Spirited Debut

Ariel Cheung | May 20, 2019 | Food & Drink

ROOH offers small and large plates, kulcha and desserts.

It’s always apparent when a chef puts his soul into his food; in the case of chef Sujan Sarkar and his San Francisco transplant ROOH, they’ve staked the restaurant’s name on it. Meaning soul or spirit in Hindi, ROOH will deliver Sarkar’s vision of progressive Indian cuisine to Chicago when it opens on Randolph Street this spring, but he kept Chicago’s own spirit in mind as well. “We put a focus on incorporating the influence of the Chicago food scene in our cuisine by including unique items such as our take on a hot dog with Malabar prawn sausage and kasundi mustard,” he says. Look for other tasty morsels like oysters topped with mango granita, pickled chile and finger lime, and beef short-rib curry paired with garlic mashed potatoes. One bite, and you’re likely to be hooked, heart and soul. 736 W. Randolph St., 312.267.2323
