Butter chicken is a popular dish in Indian restaurants, though you might see it listed on menus as Murgh Makhani. Though I suppose is someone was going to name a restaurant after the dish, they’d go with Butter Chicken.
Which is what the owners of Butter Chicken Indian Cuisine in Winter Park did.
Butter Chicken is in a little clump of businesses on Howell Branch Road behind a 7-Eleven. It’s still new enough that the signage out front looks temporary. Or maybe they’re just waiting to see if it catches on better than the Argentine restaurant.
Considering it is little more than 10 years old, the restaurant space in the City View apartments building on West Church Street in downtown Orlando has certainly had a lot of tenants. First was Uncle Henry’s Country Kitchen, the popular Johnson’s Diner, which moved from a cramped free-standing hut on Washington in summer of 2006. When it closed, Fish ’n’ Loaves took over. Then McKnight’s.
