India Delight To Replace California Tortilla in Columbia

Buildings permits never lie.  It looks like a new restaurant India Delight will replace the California Tortilla in Columbia.

(Update:  It opened in June 2009.  I love comments.  Please post comments about the restaurant on the June post.)

I posted last month about a construction permit that described alterations to an existing restaurant space at 8874 McGaw Road.  This is the shopping center where Orinoco Coffee, California Tortilla and the Atlanta Bread Company have all closed.  The smoothie place and Cha Ya Thai have held on valiantly.

There is now a sign on the California Tortilla that says India Delight Restaurant will be joining them soon.  I couldn't see inside, but the Howard County Web site says that the work passed one inspection on April 17.  The revised permit says they won't make any electrical changes, so maybe that means a quick renovation.  Good luck to them!

Does anyone know details?  (Update: A comment below asks if this might be a restaurant moving from Catonsville  That is "Indian" Delight.  The sign says "India" Delight, but who knows.)

So what's so cursed about that shopping center, other than the usual cursings of Columbia retail ?

I really don't know. It strikes me that three serious chains plus Orinoco closed in that shopping center. Other restaurants have certainly closed, but I haven't seen such widespread closings anywhere else. Maybe these were just too new. Maybe the rent was high or the landlord unwilling to make compromises that other places have made.

I stopped by Indian Delight and talked to owner Mr.Singh and was told that restaurant/bar should be open by June 1st. Owner is a experienced chef and use to own Mughal Garden in Baltimore on Charles street.

I was there at 8874 mcgaw rd in columbia to see if India Delight Restaurant is open yet or not. The restaurant is not open yet but i met the owner and saw the restaurant from inside. India Delight columbia is one the beautiful restaurant in the area. I can't wait until the restaurant is open.

No, THIS NOT INDIAN DELIGHT IN CATONSVILLE. This is India Delight columbia. These are two different restuarant India and Indian.
