Curry Up Now launches in San Ramon with Mortar & Pestle

The Indian fast-casual concept continues to grow in California alongside the craft cocktail offering

Curry Up Now is celebrating the opening of its San Ramon location at 6000 Bollinger Canyon Road in City Center Bishop Ranch. The location will also feature a Mortar & Pestle craft cocktail bar for guests to enjoy alongside their food. 

Mortar & Pestle has 24 local brews on tap, and offers its signature cocktails, Mortar & Pestle, Escape from the Bay, Junkyar Heart, Ambika’s Grove and many others.  

“We’ve put a lot of work into this store over the past year and are extremely excited to open our doors to the San Ramon community,” said Akash Kapoor, founder, CEO and chief troublemaker for Curry Up Now.  

“We’ve incorporated a ton of unique and innovative elements to this location, like specific dishes only available on the San Ramon menu, table-side ordering and in-store robots that help deliver the food to your table.” 

This location was highly anticipated to open in 2020, but was pushed back by the COVID-19 global pandemic. The brand had a food truck set up at the City Center Bishop Ranch shopping center. 

The husband-and-wife team who started this brand, Akash and Rana Kapoor, have grown the brand to over 19 locations in the country, coast-to-coast. The brand has also invested in food trucks and digital kitchens.
