RENOWNED INDIAN RESTAURANT EXPANDING ... Anu and Vikram Bhambri operate modern Indian restaurants in San Francisco, New York City, Chicago, New Delhi — and come this fall, downtown Palo Alto. They're opening a new restaurant at 473 University Ave. The space was last occupied by Arte Ristorante, which closed temporarily last January and never reopened. The Bhambris, originally from Delhi, started their careers in the tech industry. Both worked at Microsoft in Seattle. Anu said she was always dissatisfied with the Indian dining scene in the United States, which felt unrepresentative of the full breadth and depth of the cuisine. "Most of the restaurants in the U.S. were doing heavy curries. That is not what Indian cuisine is about," she said. "We want to change the perception of Indian food." The Palo Alto restaurant will have a distinct focus on Indian grilling and kebabs, Anu said. Her favorite is the galouti kebab, patties made with different kinds of meat and spices that "melt in your mouth," she said. They're aiming to open in Palo Alto this fall.
