Indo creator Nick Bognar has partnered with his parents in the new restaurant. “My mom is my business partner, but also my mentor,” Bognar said.
The restaurant’s name derives from Indochina, the continental portion of Southeast Asia, and the food is inspired by the foods with which Bognar grew up.
An open concept, six-seat chef’s counter offers omakase at the front of the restaurant.
Through the first room with 16 seats and the omakase counter, a hallway IS lined with family photographs leading to the 30-seat dining room and patio where guests are served a la carte.
The menu consists of small shareable plates, divided into hot and cool tastings, and shareable large entrees.
When speaking about the food, chef Nick Bognar said in a statement: “I want to drop a party at the table.”
Items in the “party” consist of Short Rib Curry, Fried Madai, a whole fried snapper with papaya salad and mango chili sauce topped with an herb salad and fried shallots and Crab Donabe Rice, which is made-to-order in a clay pot with crab and fish dashi.
Additionally, Indo features a rotating Nigiri menu to showcase chef Nick Bognar’s sushi acumen.
Seatings are available for both lunch and dinner where the lunch offerings include Short Rib Noodles and Mu Ping Lettuce Wraps. Lunch prices range from $10-$18, and dinner prices ranges from $5-$20 for the hot and cold tastings and $40 for shareable dishes. The omakase menu is available for $150 a person with wine pairings available for an additional $50.
