Rasika opening a second location in the West End

We have heard for some time now that Ashok Bajaj, the restaurateur behind Rasika, 701, Bibiana, The Bombay Club, The Oval Room, and Ardeo + Bardeo, has leased space in the West End.

We are now hearing from the Washington Post that the restaurant to be opened there is going to be another Rasika location called Rasika West End.

Rasika has certainly been more than successful in Penn Quarter, even from its unassuming real estate on D Street.  We hope this doesn't mean the restauarant's frequent celebrity guests don't start going to the West End location.

The West End location will be housed in the luxury condominium building 22 West.  It will be about the same size as the Penn Quarter location, but will have a bigger kitchen, which Bajaj says will give them the opportunity to experiment.  A dedicated chef is expected from Mumbai or London.
