An RC Exclusive: Name Philly’s Newest Indian Restaurant!
UPDATE: The contest has been extended for 24 hours! You have until Tuesday, November 23 at noon to enter!
Tiffin proprietor Munish Narula wants YOU, the Restaurant Club readers, to pick a name for his new fine dining Indian restaurant at 777 South Broad Street, opening in late February. The winner will receive bragging rights — you named the restaurant! — plus, Munish will give the winner a chef’s dinner for six with wine pairings and a VIP tour of the new Winka Dubbeldam-designed restaurant before it opens. Do you have an idea for a great name for this new restaurant? Here’s how to enter:
Send an email to [email protected] with “777 South Broad” in the subject line. The email MUST include:
- Your suggestion for a restaurant name.
- Your first and last name, mailing address, phone number and email address.
Entries will be accepted until noon on Monday, November 22. [UPDATE: The contest has been extended for 24 hours! You have until Tuesday, November 23 at noon to enter!] Entries received after noon on Monday, November 22 Tuesday, November 23 will not be eligible.
On Tuesday, December 7, Munish will narrow down the entries to five finalists. We’ll publish the finalists’ suggestions and let RC readers vote on their favorite, while Munish makes his selection. The readers’ choice winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Tiffin from Munish, while second and third place contestants will get $50 and $25 Tiffin gift certificates, respectively.
On Tuesday, December 14, Munish will make his selection and we’ll announce the winner (and the winning name) on the Restaurant Club.
Munish has been very quiet about the details on the restaurant — we know it’s finer dining than the Tiffin concept (and no delivery), he’s hired a chef who has never cooked Indian food before, and whose name he hasn’t revealed yet. The space will feature multiple dining nooks, an open kitchen with tandoor ovens front and center and a unisex bathroom — you can check out the renderings below.
Don’t be fooled by the Tiffin sign — this is no Tiffin. Dubbeldam plans to wrap the exterior of the restaurant metal mesh.
The open kitchen will feature glass-encased tandoor ovens and will be visible from multiple angles.
A see-through “wine wall” and communal seating area.
