At long last, I have a good answer for theatergoers hoping to catch dinner near Arena Stage on the Southwest Waterfront. It’s called Masala Art and it’s a spinoff of the Indian restaurant of the same name in Tenleytown.<br /><br />Since mid-July, when the second restaurant made its debut, loyalists have had rich reasons to dine closer to home. One is chicken tikka, its moist nuggets elevated with basil and lime leaves. Another is a south Indian fish curry that gathers chunks of cobia in a turmeric-tinted coconut milk gravy. (The dark purple rind in the bowl is kokum, a fruit that imparts a pleasant sweet-sour note.) Tender baby eggplant draped in a thick cloak of pureed peanuts, sesame seeds and tamarind makes for a meaty vegetarian meal.<br />1101 Fourth St. SW. 202-554-1101. masalaartdc.com.<br />WashingtonPost.com,

"Masala ARt Waterfront is a very welcome addion to the area. It provides a good dining option for Arena Theater. Park, eat and see a play. However, the pre-theater menu is not up to the standard of the original Masala Art in Tenleytown and the restaurant is definitely not a "destination.""

"This is a quiet neighborhood outpost with high quality food and a very respectable wine list. We live in the neighborhood and it is our favorite local spot. We don't feel at all deprived not to be a Manhattan hot spot."
