Siblings Taj and Harris Sohal are aiming to open Glassey later this month in Truxton Circle, where they will show off the Indian-American cuisine they grew up with—including creative street food dishes and a potential signature dish they’re billing as D.C.’s spiciest curry.
It’s the first time the Sohals have attempted to open a restaurant, and the pair chose the location at 1625 1st St. NW because it’s next door to Sunset Wine & Spirit, a liquor store their immigrant parents bought in 2000 after moving to the District in the 1990s with less than $100 to their name, according to Taj. They also live nearby. “We grew up seeing our parents working tirelessly and were extremely inspired by their perseverance,” she adds.
