Renderings and details surrounding the planned Tulsi Indian Eatery in Northridge’s The Shops at Symmetry have recently surfaced. It will be one of at least two Los Angeles locations for the soon-to-be-launched chain with an outpost also planned in DTLA where Bäco Mercat used to operate. Tulsi’s 3,369-square-foot corner Northridge restaurant, at 19535 W. Nordhoff Street, was first uncovered in late-August. It will offer an outdoor patio.
Sagar Ghosh is Tulsi Indian Eatery’s corporate chef, per LinkedIn. Ghosh’s resume includes two long stints with Carnival Cruise Line and Hilton Worldwide. There isn’t a menu available to the public quite yet, but Gosh won’t be serving “overspiced, boring curries and hard flatbreads,” the website states.
Tulsi Indian Eatery will have three distinct elements: Tulsi Quick Service, Tulsi Thali Room, and Tulsi Lassi Bar. Tulsi Quick Service will be a fast-casual component offering a “wide variety of comforting and nourishing Indian treats in a brand new, casual dining room.” The Tulsi Thali Room is for more of a sit-down-and-order dining experience and the Tulsi Lassi Bar will serve customizable lassi (yogurt shake). It will likely open in winter 2020.
Tulsi joins a lineup of restaurant and retail tenants that were announced for the mixed-use in late-2019: Burger Lounge, California Fish Grill, Drnk/Qwench, Panini Kabob Grill, The Joint Chiropractic, and Urban Dentist. The center was originally aiming for a spring 2020 debut and an August post on the official Facebook page for The Shops at Symmetry indicates it is “coming soon” with no exact opening timeline.
