The family behind Jamaica Plain's third Indian restaurant is hoping to open at 3706 Washington St. in August.
Samdutt Sharma told Jamaica Plain News that Tikki Masala, a 25-seat restaurant, will serve mostly North Indian and some South Indian dishes.
Sharma's plan got a thumbs-up from the JP Business & Professional Assoc. at the group's July meeting.
Sharma said his family has applied for a beer and wine license and hopes to provide both take-out and delivery.
Sharma's business and restaurant experience includes owning a sub shop and convenience store in Waltham and being a chef at the Hilton in Cambridge. Tikki Masala's proposed hours would be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week, Sharma said.
One challenge the new restaurant will face is disruption caused by the coming Casey Overpass demolition and transition into a network of at-grade streets. JP's city councilor, Matt O'Malley, is urging residents to "Adopt a Restaurant" in Forest Hills during the chaos and commit to going there at least once a week.
