What’s your favorite way to spend a rainy day? I like to cuddle up with a snack, a cup of tea, and a nice book. Since it was chilly with wind and rain this past weekend, I bet there was plenty of time spent indoors. Hopefully you still found time to get out and enjoy the town, and if your plans got washed out, here are a few Bucks County options to make up for it.
New menu at New Hope Tandoori Grill. If you’re a big fan of Indian food and live in Bucks County, it’s your lucky day. New Hope Tandoori Grill, in the heart of scenic New Hope, presents a special Indian menu with dishes inspired by the cooking of Chef Human Kabir’s mother.
Kabir has brought his skills from 18 years working in Manhattan Indian kitchens here to Bucks County. His menu incorporates dishes from both north and south India, as well as Indo-Chinese selections. New Hope Tandoori Grill is open for lunch and dinner. Right now the restaurant has 4.5 stars on Yelp. Some guests mentioned that the restaurant is great for vegans and vegetarians. Check out the new menu here.
Food for Thought book club.This Tuesday, October 11, come to Bucks County’s only food-related book club, sponsored by the Doylestown Food Market. They meet every second Tuesday of the month at the Doylestown Book Store.
This Tuesday, the featured book is Blessing the Hands that Feed Us: Lessons From a 10-Mile Diet, by Vicki Robin.
