Indian restaurants are few and far between in our tropical metropolis,
so the opening of Bengal on Biscayne Blvd is an exciting development

for Miami curry junkies. The Bangladeshi owners have experience in the
restaurant business, having worked in Michael Schwartz's kitchen when
he was at Nemo. The two-story restaurant features floor-to-ceiling

windows facing the busy boulevard, tables clad in white linens,
wine-colored banquettes and flatscreen TVs that play Bollywood
