~KASA INDIAN EATERY~, the casual Castro place with delicious kati rolls (imagine Indian burritos) and thali plates (pictured) are due to open their second location (“K2”) this Friday December 18th—but call before heading over because the date keeps shifting! The menu will be like the original’s, with everything cooked from scratch and featuring local and naturally raised ingredients. The space used to be a furniture store—designer Gi Paoletti is integrating more of an Indian and rustic look to the space, with textured walls and wood frames. While it will be a little more raw-looking than the Casto space, the color scheme of chocolate brown, dark purple, and magenta will remain, with stainless steel elements, and there’s also a steel sculpture. (And it’s also fifty percent larger than the original location.) There will be banquettes, communal seating, and a counter, convenient for solo diners. The large windows facing the street and outdoor seating will also bring an airy feeling to the space. Sommelier Mark Bright chose six wines for the list, and there are beers on tap, plus “Indian sangria,” chai tea, and mango lassi. Kasa will be open for lunch, dinner, and open late: hours are Sun—Wed 11am—11pm, and Thu—Sat 11am—2am.
