A popular spot for Indian food on Massachusetts Avenue will shut its doors next week in preparation for a new concept that plans to move into the space. India Castle — which is under the purview of the same team behind Desi Dhaba, Punjabi Tadka, and Kabab Corner — is into its final week at 928 Mass. Ave., according to an employee reached at the restaurant Monday.
India Castle has been around since 1999 and specializes in appetizers like samosas and pakoras; South Indian dishes like masala dosa and uttapam; chicken, beef, lamb, and goat entrees; and a number of vegetable, rice, and tandoori dishes.
The new proprietors of the place will be Christopher and Pamela Willis, who have plans to open a pasta-centric restaurant called Pammy's, as previously reported. The pair wants to create a lineup of fresh pastas for the restaurant, which will apparently be a "less stuffy" fine dining spot.
Pammy's will accommodate 85 people for dinner, will have a full liquor license, and may eventually serve weekend brunch.
