The former Maharaja restaurant (525 Valencia Street), which closed last May, has some new owners and now bears the new name Gajalee. The concept is coastal Indian seafood focused on the regions of Goa, Kerala, and Kamataka, and it’s a new spot from the owner of nearby Udupi Palace, Boni Jacob. They expect to be open next week on this very foodie block between 16th and 17th, though another inspection may be pending. They will be serving beer and wine, and we promise to update you as soon as we learn more, or snag a menu. [Grub Street]
