: With two locations in this district, this restaurant puts a modern twist on Indian cuisine featuring small plates yet big taste.

The entrees list will have you wishing for a bigger stomach with choices like tandoori chicken tikka and grouper kerala curry. Be sure to make time to check out the artwork throughout the restaurant.

Restaurants with Gluten-Free Menus
: Authentically gourmet takes on sigri (open barbecue), tandoori (oven) and tawa (griddle) dishes have enabled this elegant Penn Quarter establishment to garner a huge amount of popular and critical praise over the years. All the attention is justly earned, too, thanks, in part, to the place's smart, suave decor that features rich colors, imported fabrics and chandeliers. And the fare – including Lamb Dahiwala, Dum Ha Duck and Tandoori Trout – truly captivates the senses. Many of Rasika's dishes are naturally gluten-free, making dining a breeze for the gluten-intolerant at this, one of the District's most popular Indian restaurants.
