The bad news: The long-awaited opening of the Bloomingdale neighborhood’s Glassey was postponed due to the pandemic. Now for the good news: Glassey, showcasing “Punjabi roots and American tastes” is now open for takeout and delivery.

Located at 1625 First St. NW, Glassey is owned by 22-year-old Taj Sohul and her mother, Anjul Gill, who also helms the kitchen. (The family also operates Sunset Wine & Spirit next door.)

On the brief takeout menu are North Indian specialties like samosas, butter chicken, biryani, kathi rolls, chicken tikka burgers and masala fries. By the way, “Glassey” is a Punjabi term for a “boozy, fun-filled time.” Glassey is open from noon to 9 p.m. six days a week (closed Tuesdays).

To order, call 202-483-8286 or visit www.glasseydc.com. You can also order through DoorDash, GrubHub or Postmates.
