    This clever restaurant takes all comers while still creating some of the most breathtakingly interesting and soulful Indian food anywhere, such as Texas shrimp chaat with corn and avocado, paneer-stuffed chicken legs or oatmeal chocolate-chile cookies.

    The desserts under pastry chef Chris Leung are equally intriguing, with a lighter and more intelligent touch than is normally found in any pastry program — let alone at a sushi restaurant.

    Better than the beer, though, is chef Shiva Patel's Texas-British-Indian fusion food, from her Oysters Victoria topped with saag paneer to an outstanding pub burger between two English muffins.

    By day, it's a casual and cute place to grab an inexpensive Italian lunch. By night, it's effortlessly and casually romantic, just as you'd want a great date to be.

    The Elvis Presley Memorial Combo is the stuff of legend. And Chuy's will gladly top anything — anything at all — with a fried egg.
