Nawab’s Indian Restaurant

It’s finally here folks. We had written about Nawab’s Indian Restaurant months ago when we learned that it was in the works, but now we can happily report that they’re open for business. Nawab’s Indian Restaurant is focused on Punjabi cuisine from the north of India. The menu features lots of vegetarian dishes, your typical curries of lamb or chicken plus a few southern and mid-country call-outs. Oh, and don’t forget the large selection of naan bread for you to enjoy. The restaurant is located at Kickapoo Corners Shopping Center on 3654 S. Campbell Ave. Go check it out.

D’vine Delicatessen

We have a new delicatessen market and wine store in town, and it’s totally worth checking out. They are bringing in a selection of gourmet products from all over Europe and a good amount from Spain. The owner, Doug Gruenberg, comes from the world of Dean & DeLuca, and he’s ready to share his knowledge and passion for wine and food with Springfield. For now, D’vine Delicatessen and Wine is serving sandwiches and salads but soon there will be charcuterie boards with different location themes and all sorts of fun accouterments. And don’t let me forget the wine by the glass or bottle to be enjoyed as well. Go visit them at 3522 S. National Ave.
