A new Indian restaurant is coming to Old Town Alexandria's Tavern Square in 2021. Kismet Modern Indian, a sister restaurant of DC's Karma Modern Indian, will open at 111 N. Pitt Street. The restaurant comes from founders Sachin Mahajan and Ricky Singh and Executive Chef Ajay Kumar, who will bring his award-winning cuisine from Karma Modern Indian. The restaurant is aiming to open in fall 2021. According to patch.com, "Karma Modern Indian combines fine dining and modern Indian cuisine, aiming to please diners familiar with Indian cuisine and those trying it for the first time. The restaurant earned the Michelin Guide's Bib Gourmand designation in 2021 for value-focused dining. Mahajan is an international financial executive who opened Karma Modern Indian in 2017 to provide DC diners with authentic contemporary Indian cuisine and make Indian approachable for any occasion. He along with Chef Kumar are natives of New Delhi and seek to bring high-quality food, drinks and service in a stylish setting." As per patch.com, "While Karma is named for the effects of actions on a person's life and the lives of others, Kismet refers to a person's destiny and luck. Karma takes that message to heart by donating a portion of sales to local and global nonprofits helping children in underserved communities. Kismet Modern Indian will be located in the space formerly occupied by BurgerFi, which Alexandria Times reported closed in 2017. Until Kismet Modern Indian opens in the fall, diners can visit Karma Modern Indian, at 611 I Street NW in downtown DC. The restaurant is open Wednesday through Sunday for lunch and dinner."
