Punjab Grill


Punjab Grill welcomes guests to gather over time-honored recipes handed down from generations of khansaamas (chefs), expertly crafted cocktails and an assortment of spectacular wines, providing a vibrant setting for all occasions. Punjab Grill boasts a sumptuous, yet inviting design, inspired by the lifestyle of the Maharajas who were patrons of the arts and fine craftsmanship. The menu is deeply rooted in the essence of the Punjab region, known for its richness, warmth, hospitality and love for life, and the cuisine reflects that. The menu is based on fresh and local produce wherever possible with a strong focus on sustainability and environmental responsibility. In addition to extensive vegetarian and vegan options, the menu features a selection of organic dishes for the conscientious diner. The restaurant also offers dishes inspired by Indian street food culture, such as Potato Tikki served with crispy greens and Gol Guppa, a perennial favorite that is best described as “an explosion of flavor in your mouth.”

The moment one enters the restaurant, the striking intricacy of hand crafted finishes of fine woods and brass, inlays with marble, Indian sandstone, mother-of-pearl and carved stone friezes set the tone for a memorable experience and the discovery of unusual details at each turn. The restaurant spaces have been planned as distinct thematic zones. The interior’s pièce-de-résistance is the magical ‘Sheesh Mahal’ or palace-of-mirrors. The private dining space is a brilliant cocoon of a hundred thousand individually hand crafted convex mirrors, a space where an illuminated candle can get multiplied into a thousand points of light that suggest a starry night sky. The ‘Sheesh Mahal’ is a distinctive focal point of some of India’s most famous palaces and forts and this mesmerizing feature at Punjab Grill is designed to dazzle guests and become the most sought-after private dining room in D.C
