Earlier this year, news that a place called the Marigold Café would be opening next to Restoration Pizza in Journal Center provoked speculation. Would it be a diner? An Indian restaurant? A coffee shop?
Turns out it’s a little of all three.
On Marigold’s menu, chicken wings, grilled cheese sandwiches and other American comfort foods coexist with such Indian stalwarts as tikka masala, samosas and the vegetarian dish gobi tofu. Some offerings, like macaroni and cheese baked in tikka masala sauce, meld the two cuisines together in one dish.
