Marigold Maison relocating to Lincolnshire
An acclaimed Indian restaurant in Bannockburn is relocating to a shopping center in nearby Lincolnshire.
Lincolnshire officials are thrilled the eatery is moving to their town.
"We are excited to add Marigold Maison to our roster of unique restaurants, and to fill this prominent restaurant space at Lincolnshire Commons," said Tonya Zozulya, Lincolnshire's economic development coordinator.
Marigold Maison opened last year at 2535 Waukegan Road in Bannockburn. The Daily Herald named it one of the best new suburban restaurants of 2015.
A second Marigold Maison location operates in Phoenix.
The restaurant is moving to improve its visibility and accessibility, said Sunny Mehra, the vice president of development with JNK Concepts, the company that owns Marigold Maison.
Lincolnshire Commons' proximity to other restaurants, stores and the Regal Cinemas movie theaters was a big draw, Mehra said.
The center is within what's become a restaurant row for the village. Other popular eateries on or near that stretch of Milwaukee Avenue include Wildfire, Big Bowl, Red Robin, Eddie Merlot's and the Half Day Brewing Company.
Marigold Maison's menu includes traditional dishes, such as lentil soup, samosa, chicken tikka masala, chicken tandoori and a variety of curries. Vegetarian appetizers and entrees are available as well.
Fans of the restaurant shouldn't expect any significant menu changes in the new location, Mehra said.
"People love our choices," he said. "People love the food flavors."
The current site is scheduled to close Dec. 31, Mehra said.
