Badmaash Restaurant

A New and Hip Blend of Traditional and Modern Indian Food

Badmaash is an amazing Indian Gastro Pub located in downtown Los Angeles, CA. It is famously known for its authentic and unique mix of Traditional & Modern Indian food. Owned by the Mahendro family, a father and his two sons would like guests to think of it as a peaceful and Gandhi-like location with a totally non-violent and hipster vibe mixed with a healthy way of eating fine food. Badmaash has been featured on VICE, Hypebeast and the Emmy-winning food series, The Migrant Kitchen, seen here.

Badmaash was recommended to Modab Insurance Services through a mutual real estate agent, Paul, who worked with both Michael, founder of Modab, and the Mahendro family. Paul recommended that they speak with Michael about their newfound business goals and plans. Paul had always appreciated how Michael and Modab Insurance Services treated his clients. Paul trusted that Modab would always look out for the best interest of their client’s personal and commercial business insurance needs.

The Mahendro family had recently moved to Los Angeles from Canada and did not have the network in LA like some do growing up here for 40 years. After connecting with Michael, who did his best to introduce them to vendors/talent within the area and to better their choices/services. The learning curve was steep for the Mahendro’s, considering that after they chose a location in downtown Los Angeles, they needed to provide the landlord of the building with proof of insurance to obtain the keys and open.

The process for obtaining proper liability and insurance coverage for their business was similar to most in the restaurant space –

Phase One

  • Builders Risk & Liability
    • This will protect you while you are in construction and protect your tenant improvements and Business Property
    • Liability is usually extended from the contractor – both the restaurant owner and landlord

Phase Two

  • Restaurant Insurance – Operations
    • Business Owners Policy – or Commercial Package
      • General Liability, Liquor Liability, Loss of Income, Property, and much more
    • Workers Comp Insurance
    • Commercial Auto
    • EPLI – Employment Practices Liability Insurance
      • Includes – sexual harassment, wrongful termination, discrimination, wage and hour and much more
      • This is very active in the media today and a large risk for restaurant & bars

Modab Insurance has been fortunate enough to build a very close relationship with Badmaash and the Mahendro family. They have also helped them with events and venues, such as Coachella, and hope to work with them more in their continued success.
