When you dine out, you might think about the ingredients that go into your food, but you probably don’t think about all the numbers that make your meal happen. Restaurants are filled with interesting figures that might not be apparent when you bite into an enticing entrée or take a sip of a signature cocktail, but they’re all around you.
This week we take a trip to modernist Indian mecca Rasika West End to get the lowdown on how much rice they cook up and how many chilies they burn through every week. Plus, a quick primer on how to correctly pronounce the restaurant’s name.
