Next, select a main ingredient, including seafood, chicken or vegetables; and finally choose a sauce from masala, spinach, curry, korma or vindaloo. Complement your custom entrees with a glass of red or white wine. Finish the night on a sweet note, and share any one of Bombay Spice Grill's desserts, including Mango Sorbet, Carrot Halawa or Rice Pudding.
Additionally, most dishes are 500 calories or less and prepared with olive oil rather than ghee or butter, providing low-fat, heart-healthy meals without compromising authentic Indian flavors.

The Uptown expansion is a dream come true for the local small business owner, who said when he saw the vacant storefront last year he envisioned "bright neon signs" in his mind that told him it would be a great spot for his second location.
Brandt said Pie Hole, which offers an an eclectic variety of custom pizzas with crazy combinations such as marshmallow and sausage, has always had an "underground, anti-establishment and irreverent vibe."
"The fact that it is not in the most commercial location is actually a plus for us," he said.
The new address is in a residential area, but it sits on bustling North Clark Street at West Argyle Avenue, at "the end of the Andersonville retail strip that is progressively growing a little farther and farther south," Brandt said.
"So, it has a lot of potential in the future."
