Well-known Indian cookbook author and local DC personality, Monica Bhide has written a novel entitled, "Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken." The Fourth Estate Restuarant is hosting a launch party and Indian dinner to celebrate Monica's triumph on Monday, December 12, 2016. Hors d’oeuvres start at 6:30pm; dinner at 7:00pm.
The five-course Indian meal will be from recipes from a compendium Monica is providing with all copies of the novel. Some of the dishes are central to the plot of "Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken," including the titular entrée. There will be beverage pairings (wines, beer, tea and Mango lassi) with each course. Fourth Estate wine dinners have been selling out and serving a full Indian meal in the restaurant is a real treat.
Single tickets are $80; couple tickets are $155. Members of the National Press Club get a 15% discount. A copy of the book (one per person/couple) and a compendium of recipes are included in the price.

When & Where
The Fourth Estate Restaurant
The Fourth Estate Restaurant is open to the public and serves stylish American food in the historic National Press Club. Executive chef Susan Delbert uses locally grown produce and meats for a menu that elevates taste above trendiness. The atmosphere is ideal for a meal with a source or a sweetheart.
While the venue is historic, the food is rooted in here and now. Susan works with organic and small farmers in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, giving her access to the freshest, most flavorful produce, cheeses, and meats.
The Winners' Room is our private dining room seating up to 36 that features a sun-filled room named after the winners of the prestigious Fourth Estate Award. Enjoy lunch or dinner where the newsworthy aren’t just pictures on the wall -- they’re probably speaking in the next room.
