We've been telling you about Meeru Dhalwala's Shanik, the most anticipated restaurant opening of the year, for a while now. (Pick up our November Best New Restaurants issue to read our full-length preview of Vij's much-anticipated sibling restaurant!)

Originally set to open in November, the opening's been pushed back to early December now. But just to tease us a little more, Shanik's menu is up! You'll notice local seafood and produce is featured in many dishes, and, as Dhalwala promised, much of the menu is vegetarian. Just beware: If you haven't had lunch yet, this'll have your stomach growling.

Among the entrees: spot prawns in coconut and saffron masala; coriander and black cardamom lamb in buttermilk curry; Kale, jackfruit, cauliflower and potato curry. And what's that I see? Oh, just the lamb popsicles that've helped make Vij's world famous (spice crusted, with coconut curry and split peas, spinach and garlic mash).
