Fine-dining Indian restaurants have been popping up across the DC area, from Punjab Grill’s glittering palace of mirrors in Penn Quarter to Bombay Velvet’s lobster malai curry in Reston. Missing from the mix? An upscale Indian dining room further down the Red Line in Montgomery County. Enter Commonwealth Indian, now open in North Bethesda’s Pike & Rose complex. The 100-seat restaurant is helmed by chef Sunil Bastola, proprietor of Bollywood Bistro in Fairfax and Great Falls.

Bastola was born in a Nepalese city bordering northern India, and his menu focuses on the Indian subcontinent’s northern region. Regional delicacies include apricot dumplings in a creamy gravy sauce and spiced lamb chops. Bastola is also adding some local flare: the kitchen simmers jumbo Maryland lump crab in turmeric, coconut milk, and royal cumin for a yellow crab curry.
