Postwork and pretheater crowds converge for sophisticated Indian fare at the dark-wood-festooned location of the Café Spice chain. We never go without the samosas, loaded with spiced potatoes, and the cool Calcutta specialty raj kachori— chickpeas, yogurt and coriander in a crisp flatbread bowl. Skip the mango ice cream and go for kheer, a cardamom- and saffron-flavored rice pudding.
