A new Indian restaurant recently opened in Crystal City.
Taj of India opened in the former Cucina Vivace space at 509 23rd Street S. It’s a second storefront for Taj of India, which originally opened in Georgetown 12 years ago.
Entree prices at Taj of India generally range from $10-20. It also has a $12-13 lunch special.
Taj of India is located next to Bistro 7107, a Filipino restaurant that quietly opened in the former El Pollito space this past summer. Named after the 7,107 islands of the Philippine archipelago, Bistro 7107 is one of the few sit-down restaurants serving primarily Filipino cuisine in the D.C. area.
The Enchanted Forest theme park closed for good in the 1990s. But the owner of a nearby farm has moved and preserved many of its parts.
