In celebration of Diwali, ROOH Chicago, a Progressive Indian restaurant and cocktail bar, is offering an exclusive, ticketed tasting menu on Sunday, Oct. 27. The menu features a four-course meal for $85 per plate, including gratuity and taxes.

Diwali is the New Year and Hindu festival of lights, which is one of the most important Indian celebrations.

The restaurant also offers special menus for other holidays and events and is currently planning a unique New Year's Eve menu.

Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
