The murals, decor and food of New Haven’s newest eatery are designed to make patrons feel as though they are dining on the streets of India.
Sherkaan Indian Street Food opened at 65-B Broadway in the Shops at Yale on April 3, and Yale University Properties hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday morning.
Owner Ankit Harpaldas called it a “wonderful location,” as it is right on the Yale campus and tucked away from the main road.
“It is the right size for us — not too big or too small,” Harpaldas said. “New Haven is what I like to call the food capital of Connecticut. At Sherkaan, we are putting a new twist on Indian food — paying homage to the culture while making it more approachable for everyone.”
