Staff from the Indian Embassy and others who know authentic Indian cuisine consider Indique’s regional dishes the real deal. Favorite dishes are too many to mention, but definitely order the vegetable samosa chaat, the chicken curry, and the tandoori shrimp. The two-level town house offers two different dining spaces: Upstairs is a beautiful room of brightly painted marigold and lime-colored walls, with best tables overlooking the atrium; downstairs includes the lively windowfronted bar area, a good spot for watching commuters emerging from the Cleveland Park subway station and all else that’s happening on busy Connecticut Avenue.
