Standout Vancouver restaurant Vij's co-owner Meeru Dhalwala plans to bring Shanik, an Indian fusion restaurant to the emerald city says Seattle Metropolitan. Rumors have circulated for a while, but it looks like Dhalwala and business partner Oguz Istif have found space in South Lake Union for their spot. Shanik is named after Dhalwala and husband Vikram Vij's youngest daughter.
Dhalwala tells the mag that Shanik's menu will be different than Vij's and Rangoli(a more casual eatery that is adjacent to Vij's)--up to 40% of the fare may be vegetarian. Look for an opening sometime in November.
