When a new spot opens in town, we can't wait to check it out -- and let you know our initial impressions, share a few photos, and dish about some menu items. First Taste, as the name implies, is not a full-blown review, but instead a peek inside restaurants that have just opened, sampling a few items, and satisfying curiosities (yours and ours).
Restaurant: Marigold Maison Location: 4720 E. Cactus Rd., D118 Open: About two weeks Eats: Indian Price: $25+ per person
Marigold Maison could be considered a reincarnation of the original Bombay Spice Grill restaurant located at 10810 N. Tatum Boulevard in Paradise Valley. That restaurant closed and relocated under the same name at 4720 E. Cactus Road last summer, also transforming from a full service restaurant into a fast-casual, quick service spot at that time.
Now owner JNK Concepts has gotten rid of the Bombay Spice name and gone back to a full-service restaurant concept. It's billing Marigold Maison as an expanded version of Bombay Spice.
