Yale University Properties Announces New Restaurant Coming to the Broadway District in New Haven

Yale University Properties welcomes Thali Too to the Broadway District in downtown New Haven.

Thali Too, located at 65 Broadway in the courtyard behind the Yale Bookstore, will be the second New Haven restaurant for chef and entrepreneur Prasad Chirnomula. Although named after the popular gourmet Indian eatery, Thali, on Orange Street, the new restaurant will have its own identity and menu, with all-vegetarian dishes featuring recipes newly created by Chirnomula after a recent trip to India. Thali Too is scheduled to open this spring.

The restaurant will feature a lassi bar with a variety of yogurt-based natural fruit drinks and a rice bar, where people can pick their own vegetables and sauces. The restaurant will feature contemporary “Indian deco” design and an open kitchen. Thali Too will offer outdoor seating on the patio in the courtyard.

“New Haven has some of the highest quality restaurants, and this will be fine dining at its best, but at affordable prices. I am so glad to be working with Yale on this new endeavor,” said Chirnomula.

This marks the eighth new tenant announced by Yale University Properties in the last few weeks. In addition to Thali Too, the other new additions are, in the Broadway District: Trailblazer, Denali and Traffic; in the Audubon District: Devil’s Gear Bike Shop II and Moe’s Southwest Grill; and in the Chapel Street District: Sushi on Chapel and Woodland Coffee and Tea.

“These stores and restaurants will certainly be positive new additions to New Haven as they open over the course of the next few months,” said Abigail Rider, director of Yale University Properties. “Yale is committed to the revitalization of New Haven, and I think we see the success of the work that has been done thus far with the announcement of so many new shops and restaurants.”

Yale University is an active partner in creating a vital downtown and promoting New Haven’s economic development through its community investment program. The University is the city’s largest real estate taxpayer, with nearly $4 million in annual property taxes. For more information about Yale’s New Haven initiatives, log on to www.yale.edu/onhsa.
