Congrats to RASA Co-Founder, Sahil Rahman, Recipient of Washington Business Journal’s Diversity in Business Award

Friday March 26, 2021

Washington Business Journal recently announced its 14th annual Diversity in Business Awards, a celebration recognizing the Washington region’s top business leaders of color based on demonstrated success over the past 12-18 months. We congratulate RASA co-founder Sahil Rahman for being included among the list of awardees!

From the article:

Sahil Rahman says he pretty much learned how to walk inside Indian restaurants. His father, Surfy, immigrated from India in 1985 and, within a few years, was operating a bistro in Maryland. Sahil came into the world in 1990 and quickly found both playground and classroom inside the family business.

That upbringing gave him a front-row seat to what he calls “the evolution of the American palate” — a growing willingness from the public to sample cuisines from other countries. After college and a short stint in finance, Rahman found himself drawn back to the tastes of his youth. Alongside business partner Rahul Vinod, the son of his father’s restaurant partner, they hatched a plan to take Indian cuisine deeper into the collective inclination.
