Two-unit Chutney Joe’s aims to break the mold of buffet-style Indian restaurants.
“There’s no creativity,” said founder Vijay Puniani of the traditional model. “You’ve been to one, you’ve been to them all.”
The mini-chain, which was established in 2009, focuses on healthful aspects of Indian food, which sometimes uses cream and frying.
Nothing is fried at Chutney Joe’s (they bake their samosas) and proteins are cooked
