An upscale Indian restaurant is replacing the Happy Mart deli at Sixth Avenue and Stevens in Tacoma.
"So far we have decided to name it Bombay Bistro," said Anita Walia, a Bombay, India, native who is opening the restaurant with her husband, Kamal, who hails from Punjab. "It's almost official. But you never know."
She's a non-practicing medical doctor. He's a Tacoma veterinarian. This is their first restaurant. They're looking to open around April. Work is under way.
Anita Walia promised northern Indian, seafood specialties and unique Indian art and décor.
"It will be fine Indian cuisine, slightly modified for the American taste," she said.
Bombay Bistro, 4328 6th Ave., Tacoma. Targeted opening: April.
