While Namaste's location in one of the city's lesser visited corners, a little distance away from the city center, is clearly not an advantage, Namaste has slowly, but surely made a name for itself thanks to the excellent fare on offer. The menu has excellent diversity with everything from your favorite pakoras and samosas for appetizers to the proverbial chicken tikka curry and tandoori specialties. Meat-eaters get an excellent choice in chicken, lamb and seafood preparations while vegetarians are well catered to with a selection of entrees with such delights as Malai Kofta and Shahi Paneer. There's a selection of biryanis for those who prefer rice preparations. Buffets are a specialty and offer great value. The dated decor, though uninspiring, lends a comfortable vibe to the place. The bar has a varied selection of spirits to cater to all tastes. One of the best places for an Indian meal in the city.

The moniker may conjure an image of a store selling bar apparatuses, but this place is a full-fledged bar, located right behind Johanna Wares' flagship, Smallwares. In February, 2012, Smallwares opened its doors and a couple of months later Johanna established Barwares, to offer her patrons a casual haven to unwind in. The space is beautifully furnished in wood, with dim lighting covering it in a warm glow. Guests can sit on a stool at the bar, lounge on the cozy sofa or sit around a table with their group. Creative handcrafted cocktails, chilled beer and delicious champagne, perfectly complement the bar fare prepared by Johanna.
Right from the eye-catching facade to the interiors and food, Der Rheinlander is German through and through. The restaurant is well-known for authentic German specialties like sauerkraut and schnitzels. Choose from any one of the entrees and get sausage, chicken, pork or veal in a hearty dish. The vegetarian meals are a good bet as well. The atmosphere inside is warm with cozy booths for seating and lots of German memorabilia adorning the walls. The friendly, singing wait-staff inside is accompanied by accordion players and is a delight to watch. Offer a request or two and sing along. A selection of rooms inside offer great opportunities for groups and private events.
Schnitzel reigns supreme in this original German restaurant, but rotisserie meats, wursts (sausages), sandwiches and salads are also available.

Enjoy this popular restaurant's Oktoberfest atmosphere or try the more formal dining next door at The Rheinlander. Either way, phone ahead for a table to avoid the constant rush.

It is difficult to describe Old Salt Marketplace in just one word; the space is home to a restaurant, bar, deli and a butcher shop. The only thing old about this place is that it strives to provide guests with traditional American products. Opened in 2013, executive chef Tim Wastell delights patrons with a seasonal menu that highlights the best ingredients of the time. Guests can enjoy delicious concoctions at the bar, prepared by mixologist, Mike Stassek; what makes the cocktail at Old Market unique, is the use of homemade syrups. Purchase fresh cuts of pork, beef and chicken from the meat section, or take home a delicious sandwich or soup from the deli counter.
