Reeta Karmarkar grew up in Delhi. Today she resides in Shreveport; her husband is Dr. Milon Karmakar. And she has brought Shreveport a bit of Delhi via her new restaurant, Utsav. "The recipes represent a fusion of the cooking of Northern India with other international influences," she explained. Her chef was cooking in Germany until March.
The cool interior was designed by Cindy Alford. "And we bought the fabrics and beads and art in India during Spring Break," said Karmakar.
Hours are 11 am to 2:00 pm for lunch and 5:30 to 9:30 (10:30 weekends) pm for supper. Utsav is located at the corner of Fern and Bert Kouns. More info? 629-0726.
