Grandeur is the word that comes to mind at this fine dining outpost on the border of Chelsea and the Flatiron District. The heavy-handled door and building exteriors are covered in hand-chiseled limestone, invoking a New Delhi palace. The expansive dining room contains reflecting pools filled with lotus flowers, dimly lit banquettes surrounded by white tablecloths, and no shortage of oversized, pink-hued limestone statues. None of this would matter, though, if the menu weren't so solid. Try the Goan shrimp, packing heat in a spicy piri-piri sauce, grilled monkfish in yogurt sauce with serrano chilies, and handi favorites like chicken Malvan. Junoon means "passion" and we can feel it.

- Best for Flatiron District's Best Restaurants Because: Junoon's wine list and creative menu elevate Indian food and give diners a peek into a world of amazing flavors.
- Indian: "Skip the fancy, overly complicated desserts and opt for the satisfying coconut rice pudding. At lunch a three course menu cost $30 vs. $70 for dinner."
- Best for Indian Because: Patrons have remarked "It is worth going broke here." Junoon's Jaipur-goes-to-West-Hollywood atmosphere totally delivers.
