Spice Up Your Life with Amara's Dinner for Two
America and India meet each other on every plate at Amara, Sandeep Kothary’s latest Inman Park venture that offers the perfect mix of traditional Indian cuisine and spice-infused modern American dishes.
What To Expect
- Dinner for 2 at Amara in Inman Park
- 1 small plate (from the Snacks, Bread, Appetizers, and Tandoori Appetizers menu) to share
- 2 entrees (from Curries, Biryana, or Main Courses)
- 2 beverages of your choice
- The perfect mix of Indian and American cuisine under one roof
In the world of modern Indian dining, Amara truly has the best of both worlds. The team of chefs at Amara, largely sourced from Sandeep’s Midtown Indian restaurant, Tabla, has expanded upon a menu of Indian classics with several unique American dishes that incorporate Indian ingredients. The result is an eclectic menu that caters equally to fans of Indian cuisine and to those who are less familiar. And our handpicked dinner for two gives you and a date the opportunity to sample the full range of Amara’s delicious Indian-American creations. Lovers of curry, tandoori, and biryana will be happy to find plenty of perfectly executed traditional Indian dishes to dive into. Small bites like the chef selected chutney tasting will awaken your palate to your favorite Indian flavors, and entrees like the popular Amara Chicken Curry – which combines spinach wrapped garlic chicken with a tomato curry sauce – provide a modern take on classic Indian cuisine.
However, if you have yet to dip your toes into the waters of Indian cooking, there are plenty of American dishes whose infusion of Indian spices serve as a perfect introduction for uninitiated diners. For example, Amara’s Brussel Sprouts ‘Bhel’ appetizer combines brussels sprouts and a sweet potato puree with tamarind and an Indian staple called boondi – made from fried chickpea flour – to create a dish that combines familiar American elements with a couple flavorful South Asian spices. When it’s time to move onto your main course, look no further than the jaggery marinated Hangar Steak, or the Salmon, which is marinated in turmeric and cooked in a traditional tandoor oven.
Even Amara’s bar program incorporates Indian ingredients in unique and delicious ways. Many popular drinks, like the signature Pear Necessities, use simple syrups made from jaggery or ginger instead of regular sugar, and a new spring cocktail menu, which will feature even more distinctive Indian infusions – is currently in the works. In addition to this Amara has wide selection of wines and local craft beers to choose from.
