Ekta, the Indian BYOB storefront on Girard Avenue in Fishtown, will open a second location at 1003 Lancaster Ave. in Bryn Mawr, which until last week was Cafe Fresko.
This was a presto-change-o. It will open Thursday (2/18), only 10 days after settlement.
Same menu. Lunch and dinner every day.
This move will add a new front to a simmering Indian rivalry.
Ekta was founded in summer 2008 by a chef and several former employees of Tiffin, Munish Narula's flagship Desi-stination a mile or so west on Girard Avenue on the fringe of Northern Liberties.
