The Flatiron District has its fair share of chic restaurants. This Indian boite impresses with style and substance. Hanging lanterns, carved woodwork and intricate textiles provide a strong sense of place, but the true star of the show is the dynamic, genre-defying menu. Dishes span several regions of India, including signature plates like tandoor-grilled Jamison Farm lamb, yam dumplings with tomato gravy, and turkey Kaa Keema, as well as slightly more esoteric fare, like Chef Suvir Saran's buttermilk-brined fried chicken from the cookbook American Masala. Those with a thirst for adventure should check out specialty cocktails like the Soursop Martini and spicy Mumbai Margarita.
Best for Indian Because: Elegant and intimate, Devi was the first Indian restaurant in the United States to be awarded a Michelin star.
