11.20.18 — In August I screwed up by reporting that a former deli on West 238th Street was going to be home to a new Indian restaurant in Kingsbridge. There have been none in the neighborhood for like a decade, so I was kinda excited, and so were many of you when I reported it. But I was freakin’ wrong. I asked a man working there what it would be and “Indian Restaurant” is what he told me. I took his word for it. But we learned soon after that, thanks to neighbors who went by the place too, that it’s going to be a pizza place. (Didn’t think the journalistic rule of 2 sources was necessary here 🙂

But now, a storefront undergoing gutting and redesign (it was recently, and very briefly, a Mexican joint I think) at 308 W. 231st St., right between the corners of Tibbett and Riverdale avenues, simply has a sign saying what it’s going to be: “Riverdale Inidan Cuisine.” I’ll forgive the owner for using “Riverdale” when it’s in Kingsbridge. I’m just looking forward to some Indian food that many of us miss very much. Let’s make sure to go whenever it opens and spread the word far and wide.
