One of Loudoun’s most respected Indian restaurants has undergone a transition of sorts as a new, fine dining Indian restaurant has taken its place. 1947 Indian Restaurant, which has called Sterling’s Potomac Run Plaza home for the past two years, quietly went away this past weekend. It’s been replaced by a new Indian restaurant called Tamarind.
1947 opened in the summer of 2016 and quickly garnered rave reviews and accolades from DC area critics. Nevertheless, The Burn started hearing rumors earlier this year that the restaurant was going away. But then nothing happened, and we assumed it was false. Turns out it was true. The owners of 1947 sold it back in June and the new owners continued to operate it under the old name until they were ready to unveil their new concept.
Tamarind Indian Cuisine features white linen tablecloths, a full bar and a menu that has retained 1947’s most popular dishes while adding new signature dishes as well. The menu features all the staples you expect samosas, butter chicken, paneers, biryani, a large selection of vegetarian dishes and more. See the full menu here.
