STAMFORD, Conn. — With its ever-so-English decor and its samosas-meets-shepherd’s pie menu, Viceroy Publik House is set to bring a taste of the British Raj to downtown Stamford next month.

Located in a bilevel townhouse on Summer Street, the new eatery and music venue will feature a heady blend of curry, pakora and fish and chips in a nod to the best of both cultures.

“The wheel has already been invented,“ said restaurateur Eric Monte, referring to British rule in the Indian subcontinent from 1858 to 1947. “Our goal was to simply create a style of restaurant and bar that spoke to the core values of a traditional English pub – historic influences and all.”

Owned by entrepreneur Ramya Lakshman, Viceroy Publik House will certainly make an impression. The entranceway is marked by the car hood of a vintage Triumph Bonnet, and suspended within the first floor’s picture window is a ‘68 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle, a product of the UK ethos.

The street-level dining room and bar is framed in carved mahogany wood and regal chandeliers.

Climb the stairs and you’re in The Tiger Room, Viceroy’s second-story alter ego and music lounge. The Tiger Room’s Heineken Stage will showcase an on-going spirited jam session among underground musicians, pop culture artists and rock ’n' roll royalty.

Monte, a consummate host with either a menu or a microphone in hand, has assembled a house band which will be the backbone to a robust schedule of music as well as the area’s first live music karaoke night.

Viceroy is scheduled to open in late April at 211 Summer Street. To sign up for its mailing list, visit www.viceroystamford.com .
