RIVERTOWNS, N.Y. -- Navjot Arora, chef and co-owner of Chutney Masala Indian Bistro, is launching a relocation of his award-winning Indian restaurant to 76 Main St. in Irvington in mid-February.
The new location, formerly home to Stone Fire Pizza, and later Irvington Bistro and Pizza, offers Arora the flexibility to expand his offerings in a more intimate setting, but also maintains his commitment to using fresh ingredients.
“We know great food starts with great ingredients,” Arora said. “At Chutney Masala, we only use homemade spices, antibiotic-free chicken, wild seafood, and local, farm fresh produce to give you a unique and authentic Indian cuisine experience. With a larger kitchen, we are adding even more healthier options to our menu including organic breads, gluten-free nan, brown rice, and quinoa.”
With the open-concept kitchen set up at 76 Main St., Arora plans to engage the dining community in monthly cooking classes the first Monday of every month.
“Our new location offers a unique setting with a chef ’s demo kitchen that will be used to further educate about healthy Indian cuisine, “Arora said. “Our cooking classes have been so well-received in the past, we will continue to host classes on the first Monday every the month. We will be posting the focus and details about our upcoming classes on the Chutney Masala Facebook page.”
In Spring 2016, the chef will open a Southeast Asian restaurant, Sambal, in Chutney Masala’s old location at 4 West Main St. in Irvington, with Thai, Malaysian and Chinese dishes on the menu.
