A rep for Rasika West End, the much anticipated spin-off of prolific restaurateur Ashok Bajaj‘s popular Indian eatery in Penn Quarter, tells Y&H that the new restaurant will open to the public on Mar. 30. A splashy grand opening cocktail reception for invited guests is scheduled for the night before. The West End spot is located at 1177 22nd Street NW with an entrance at M Street and New Hampshire Avenue.

UPDATE: The restaurant will be taking reservations for dinner service only beginning on Mar. 30, though it will eventually open for lunch service, as well, according to a rep.
