Dining Guide

When we crave Indian food, we head straight to this warm space staffed by some of the friendliest professionals in town. We simply can’t resist the luscious crabmeat samosas, plump and lightly fried, or the seared scallops, braised in a delicate saffron-and-coconut broth and served with a spinach-potato cake. Delicious! This night, we also enjoyed a special appetizer, momos: dumplings stuffed with spicy chicken and served with a vibrant orange chile sauce. Our vegetarian quite liked the roasted baby eggplant stuffed with paneer and cashew masala, presented atop green beans and mustard potatoes in a spicy tomato curry. The best dish of the evening? It’s tough to choose between the fork-tender slow-cooked lamb shank in earthy, robust gravy or the equally tender grilled beef filet, the slices served in cashew-curry gravy with sweet potatoes.
