Dining Guide

Musaafer

This posh new restaurant in the Galleria serves classic Indian cuisine—and some new dishes—with flair. The chefs visited 29 states of India to research their menu. The name, appropriately, means “traveler.” Order this to go: Mithu’s Coriander Prawns come with a little loaf of buttery bread, perfect to mop up a complex, luscious coriander-laced sauce topped with six giant prawns. Butter chicken served on skewers afloat in a rich tomato-based sauce is great with basmati rice and garlicky naan. Tasty though a bit salty is their version of palak paneer, two log-shaped bars of cheese in a deep green puree of spinach. Pro tip: For curbside pickup, turn from Westheimer into the entrance nearest Saks Fifth Avenue. Just east of Saks, near the Fig and Olive, will be a valet, who will alert the staff to bring your order down.
