Pappe brings authentic Indian cuisine to 14th Street

Pappe, which translates to “brother” in Punjabi, is an apt name for the new restaurant three friends opened together on 14th Street, NW. Vipul Kapila, chef Sanjay Mandhaiya and chef Shankar Puthran—who frequently met for dinner at Mandhaiya’s Saffron in Northern Virginia—realized their dream last spring. Melissa Funkey designed the interiors (above) using draped fabrics to evoke the street markets of Delhi and Jaipur. The menu, focusing on Northern Indian fare, includes such delicacies as paneer tikka Achari and lamb Vindaloo (left). 1317 14th Street, NW; 202-888-8220. pappedc.com
