Ashok Bajaj Confirms Rasika Expansion to West End

Restaurateur Ashok Bajaj has confirmed plans to extend his empire to the West End with a second Rasika location. The Washington Post confirms that executive chef Vikram Sunderam will helm Rasika West End and that a bigger kitchen in the new location will allow more room for experimentation. At the moment, Bajaj plans to open in February 2012 — with perhaps a second Italian eatery (à la Bibiana) to come shortly thereafter. And, in the meantime, we'll wait and see whether Bajaj and Sunderam make the jump from longlist to shortlist when the James Beard 2011 nominees are named next month.
