What happens when you give an American chef, an Indian chef, and the famed Gaylord restaurant chain free reign? You get Tanzore, a refreshingly modern take on Indian cuisine. Dine at this La Cienega hot spot, and you'll find a pleasing (if not unexpected) blend of Indian and Western tastes. In the space, vibrant silks and a Bollywood soundtrack underscore award-winning, contemporary design. The wine list swings toward California eclectic, and the menu seasons Western staples like Atlantic salmon, calamari, and butter lettuce salad with Indian spice. Start with pea and potato vegetable samosas enveloped in puff pastry, or nibble on chicken anchari tikka — moist chicken morsels bathed in pickle marinade. Next, indulge in main courses like tandoori lamb chops, masala chicken curry, or spinach-laced saag paneer. For dessert, temper your palate with cardamom chocolate cake, yogurt panna cotta, or mango mousse bombe. We're taken with Tanzore.
