Nutmeg is back on track to debut a globally inspired menu at the Silverado Ranch Place retail center across from two other highly anticipated arrivals headed to the neighborhood.
Scheduled to launch earlier this year but delayed by shutdown, Nutmeg will take over 4,100-square-feet close to the intersection of Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Maryland Parkway. The substantial corner space faces the under construction second local restaurant for Doh Korean BBQ and also Shang Mian, from the creators of Flamingo Road’s Shang Artisan Noodle.
Operators Nelroy Rebelo and Melissa Fernandes, both from Goa, India, have taken inspiration from hometown recipes, plus, Indian, Portuguese, and international creations from executive chef Miyako Vaz, a veteran of the U.K.’s dining scene, including time spent with award-winning chefs Mark Owens and Sophie Michell.
Pushing for a July opening, future hours are expected to be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, closing at midnight on Friday and Saturday and serving lunch until 2.30 p.m. on Monday to Thursday.
Anticipating daily specials during the day, the previewed main menu includes casual options of vegetable samosa appetizers, plus a kimchi Reuben sandwich, the nutmeg cheeseburger prepared with Indian spices, and the aloo tikki burger topped with cilantro mint chutney and hot sauce.
Among the entrees, chef Vaz’s spin on fish and chips, Singapore ribs, chicken or tofu tikka assala, lamb kebabs, and a Goan favorite, beef, and chicken amsol.
