dossier no. 1 / Vajra Restaurant [ location in chicago ]

The restaurant is located in a century old building that housed a tortilla factory in its heydays, among others, some storied neighborhood mainstays for a few decades in the West Town. The decor is somber, rustic and contemporary with a focus on dark woods and white walls, with a modicum of vintage brass. The cuisine celebrates the utsav everyday, the simple elegance echoing through the space and on the plate, in the form of small flavors crescendoing to the heightened sense of aroma, and flamboyant spice-bombs.

First concept by Rice Paper & Company, VAJRA aims to stay true to the roots; at the same time, introducing modern iterations of fabled dishes and simplicity of spices masterfully created by Chef Min Thapa.

While understanding that the concept of the perfect marriage of the flavors and aromas can only be afforded by the usage of fresh and local produce, VAJRA encourages and effectuates the purveyors that are reputable and honest to their respective trades. Moreover, VAJRA celebrates life with good food and the best people.
