about mango pickle

Chicago-native, Marisa Paolillo, spent nearly a decade living in and traveling across India before moving back to Chicago and opening Mango Pickle, an Indian bistro that expresses her professional training in the US and India and passion for the rich culinary traditions from across the vast and diverse geo-cultural landscape of India.

Named after a most popular condiment in India, Mango Pickle gives its patrons an uniquely creative taste of contemporary India, where modernity and tradition coexist in various - even seemingly odd or contradictory - hues of spice and color. Interior fixtures at Mango Pickle were sourced from various parts of India - including erstwhile French colony, Pondicherry, on India's south-eastern coast, ancient Varanasi, on the banks on the Ganges, in the north, and the bustling cosmopolitan metro of Bombay (Mumbai), on the Arabian Sea to the west. 

The evolving menu is an expression of the chef's direct experiences with and impressions of the culinary traditions of India and substantially driven by local and seasonal availability of meats and produce. The food served is complemented by a gin and whisky bar, with an emphasis on a curated creative selection of seasonally-updated, Indian-inspired cocktails.
