Indian cuisine answers a higher calling in this temple to the taste buds. Initially envisioned by chef and author Suvir Saran, the menu elevates traditional and regional Indian cuisine to intriguing new heights. There’s a focus on the fresh and perfectly prepared, with offerings such as tandoori grilled lamb chops and crisp okra salad. In fact, it was the first Indian restaurant in the USA to earn a Michelin star. The décor envelops contented patrons in the soft haze of sub-continental splendor.
