There will be something new for you to taste at Time Out Market Chicago in October, and we can't wait to tell you all about it. Beginning on Monday, October 4, you'll be able to order coastal Indian dishes from Bar Goa, the latest culinary concept to join the lineup at Time Out Market.

Inspired by their travels in Goa—a coastal state in western India—Manish and Rina Mallick (who also run West Loop Indian restaurant ROOH Chicago) teamed up with chef Sahil Sethi to create a menu that celebrates the pristine seafood, fragrant curry and fluffy poi bread enjoyed by locals. Bar Goa's menu at Time Out Market includes dishes like a chicken cafreal stew served with basmati rice, a pork vindaloo poi-wich (pictured above) and prawn balchao, which coats the fish in an aromatic fiery sauce. You can add a side of peri peri fries to any dish and order bottled Indian soft drinks like Limca (lemon lime soda) or Thums Up (cola). As its name suggests, Bar Goa's food is meant to be enjoyed with a drink—and you'll find plenty of options at any Time Out Market Bar.

In the coming weeks, a stand-alone location of Bar Goa is set to open in River North (116 W Hubbard Street) where guests will be able to sample even more Goan delicacies, accompanied by Portuguese wines, Indian beers and classic resort-inspired cocktails.

The opening of Bar Goa comes on the heels of another major change at Time Out Market Chicago: Beginning on Monday, September 27, Time Out Market will be open seven days a week, offering food, drinks and cultural programming that captures the soul of the city.
