STREETERVILLE — The new Bombay Wraps location in Streeterville will have a soft open Monday, with grand opening celebrations planned for next month.
Bombay natives Falguni Dewjee and Nik Jain opened the first Bombay Wraps restaurant at 122 N. Wells St. in 2010, and launched a food truck soon after.
The Streeterville location at 330 E. Ohio St. will feature the same lunch and dinner menu: a mix of eight entrees available wrapped in paratha or roti flatbreads or on a bed of lettuce and chickpeas.
Dewjee, who runs the restaurants from Chicago with her New York-based partner Jain, of M1-5 Lounge, said Bombay Wraps' menu was designed to make traditional Indian dishes like cheese paneer, yogurt-based curries and chickpea chanas more approachable.
"Bombay Wraps takes the best of Indian cooking ... and serves them in familiar forms: wrapped in Indian flatbread or unwrapped in a salad bowl," Dewjee said.
Later this summer, the restaurant plans to add a breakfast menu and begin serving Indian beer and wine. Before that, patrons can BYOB.
Wraps are priced between $3.49 and $5.99, and bowls cost between $4.99 and $7.49. Like the Loop location, the Streeterville outpost will offer delivery and catering.
