This tiny family-run bakery-cafe operation near TCU scores big points for its pretty French pastries and lovely birthday cakes. Sandwiches and salads keep the lunch crowd happy, and a limited brunch menu is offered on weekends. But it’s the Thursday-night Indian specialties that command the most attention. Try this: Each Thursday brings a new prix-fixe menu; the full dinner is $40 for two and $70 for four. Best bets so far are the chicken biryani, with cuts of whole bird in a spicy tomato curry mixed with rice, cilantro, and fried onions, and the butter chicken curry served with fluffy basmati. Naan and vegetable samosas are on point, as is the mango chutney. Dessert is the pastry chef’s choice; keep your fingers crossed for the chocolate-dipped cookies. Pro tip: Go next door to Put a Cork in It and ask for wines specially paired to go with the Thursday dinners.
