Bombay Frankie stands out among the faded storefronts on Amsterdam near Columbia University: There’s a glowing blue neon sign. But it also stands out for its namesake Bombay frankies, the flatbread wraps that dominate the small menu. Slightly different from kati rolls, popularized in New York by Kati Roll Company, these frankies hail from Bombay, and their fillings—including spiced egg, chicken and lamb—are topped with yogurt and cilantro sauce. You can get them to go, but the potato-filled ones feel like they weigh seven pounds each, so you might want to eat them at the counter—or at Suite, the bar next door.
