With elegant Bollywood-inspired cocktails and an elevated approach to South Asian cooking, this New York City import is poised to upset L.A.’s Indian restaurant status quo. Led by international chef Sujan Sarkar, who’s also found success in Chicago, San Francisco and New Delhi, Baar Baar showcases a newer, more modern side of subcontinental cuisine in an airy Downtown dining room (previously occupied by Faith & Flower). Vibrant chaats—a family of savory, often crispy snacks—and fusion-style items like a duck birria taco deftly mix the familiar and novel for an upscale dining experience you won’t forget anytime soon. On our visit, we especially enjoyed the unusually nuanced butter chicken, made with red pepper and fenugreek.
