Just Curry returns

More than three years after closing down two locations of Just Curry– one on the Corner and one in the Downtown Transit Center– Chef Alex George is currying favor once more with a new location on the Downtown Mall.

"The opportunity presented itself, and it was too good a chance to pass up," says George, a one-time personal chef for the wealthy who also serves as executive chef at the popular and upscale Commonwealth Restaurant and Skybar. For the revived Just Curry, which opened on February 20, George has partnered with a physician who declines to be named.

The menu features two types of chicken curry as well as beef, lamb and a vegetarian option in three sizes ranging from $6 to $14. Side dishes include basmati rice, peas and rice, plantains and rice pudding. And former Just Curry loyalists may also appreciate the bright ambience of the new space– located directly across from Commonwealth in the former Great Scott's Gourmet Popcorn location– which features bright red walls, hardwood floors and stainless steel accents.

Currently, Just Curry is open only for lunch Monday through Friday, but George says the restaurant will start serving dinner on Friday nights with the arrival of Fridays After Five in April. After that, he says, "we'll see how it goes."
