Opened in February of last year, right before shelter-in-place orders, this upscale restaurant, serving pioneering Cal-Indian fare, has managed to survive to now. Chef Srijith Gopinathan gained local fame by previously leading Taj Campton Place in San Francisco, where he was responsible for the restaurant’s two Michelin stars. At Ettan, feast on the Sukka Braised Beef Short Rib meal for two, which is stir-fried with curry leaves, dry coconuts, shallots and pumpkin, all served with steaming, flaky Kerala Paratha. The dessert selection includes perfumey flavor combinations like the Saffron Slice, made with rhubarb, pistachio, and cardamom. Ettan also has a fast-casual concept in the brand new State Street Market in Los Altos, for those wanting the same essence of the food in a more laid-back atmosphere.
How to order: Walk in, make reservations, or order pickup via Chownow.
