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 of India, Mango Pickle gives its patrons a distinctly creative taste of contemporary India where modernity and tradition coexist effortlessly in various, even seemingly odd, hues of color and combinations of 'spice'. 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 (now Mumbai), on the Arabian Sea to the west.
Mango Pickle's evolving menu is an ongoing 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.
