Absolute BBQ to open in Chesterfield Valley

A taste of China, India and the Mediterranean is slated to open at the end of March when first-time restaurant owner Venkatesh Sattaru welcomes diners to Absolute BBQ – Indian Wish Grill. The restaurant will be located at 17409 Chesterfield Airport Road in Chesterfield and will serve food inspired by Sattaru’s travels while in the military.

“It’s a fusion and continental grill,” Sattaru said of his 90-seat restaurant. The menu will include Chinese fried rice and chow mein, spicy chicken 65, shawarma and more. Serving lunch and dinner, Absolute BBQ aims to have speedy counter service and combo lunches as well as a la carte dinner choices and a full bar.

Pending approval, Sattaru will have flattop grills at each table. Patrons will be able to select their protein (lamb, goat, chicken, fish or shrimp) and sauce. The protein of choice will arrive on a skewer for diners to eat right then or add extra sear with a quick hit on the grill.

Sattaru hopes to expand quickly, looking to open a second location in the Delmar Loop by the end of the year.
