This isn't your dadi's Indian restaurant. With stark white walls, stained hardwood floors, softly candlelit tables and pendant lighting, this high-end restaurant appeals to a cross section of neighborhood folks, navy blue-wearing professionals and hip twenty- and thirtysomethings. The kitchen focuses on flavors from Punjab, Hyderabad, Goa, Madras, Lucknow and Calcutta for inspiration, and serves upscale versions of South Asian classics like roghan josh, made with succulent roast goat, tandoor-roasted chicken in savory yogurt sauce, and grilled scallops in coconut mint sauce. If you're looking for a different type of late afternoon nip, the neighboring tea room features Indian specialties like ajwain biscuits as well as sandwiches, pastries, and hot teas.
Best Because: This upscale Indian restaurant spans South Asia, and attracts a classy crowd to an otherwise unremarkable stretch of East 22nd Street.
