Rasika Plans a Frozen Dinner Line

Getting a table at Rasika can be next to impossible these days - though the restaurant opened in 2006, it continues to get amazing press, and rightfully so.

Today the Washingtonian brings us news that soon, getting a table will mean pulling up a chair to your own dining room table.  That's right: Ashok Bajaj, the restauranteur behind Rasika, Bibiana, 701 and others has plans to launch a frozen dinner line.

This is not the first time Bajaj has experimented with home-cuisine.  For a spell you could have picked up Rasika-branded sauces at Whole Foods, but the frozen meal idea means you'll be able to simply grab from the freezer & be good to go.

Bajaj is still in the testing phase and has to open Rasika West End in March, so we shouldn't expect these meals to pop up at the local Safeway any time soon, but we'll be keeping an eye on it.  In the meantime, we're wondering if their signature palak chaat (crispy spinach) will translate to microwavable.  We certainly hope so.

  1. Yum! Count me in. I've bought Cava Mezze items at Whole Foods, so why not Rasika (which I like even more)?
