Bollywood Bar & Clay Oven blends India with wine country
Enjoy authentic, ingredient-focused Indian cuisine with a modern twist at the new Bollywood Bar & Clay Oven in Santa Rosa, in central Sonoma County.
Inspired by the spirit of India and the best of wine country hospitality, this is a new venture by the Chandi Hospitality Group, which also owns Mountain Mike’s Pizza, Beer Baron, Stout Brothers Irish Pub and Restaurant, and the recently opened Mercato Pasta & Produce.
The farm-to-table menu by chef Niven Patel features contemporary interpretations of traditional Indian dishes. The spices come from a village in Gujarat, India, and as much fresh produce as possible is sourced from Sonoma County. The Smoked Lamb Shank is created in a six-day process in which the shank is brined, smoked, and braised until tender. The vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options are marked on the menu.
In addition to beer and wine, the bar offers unique Indian-inspired artisanal cocktails that incorporate ingredients like raw turmeric, Buddha’s hand, makrut lime, and coconut milk.
