Tandoori comes alive on Saturday nights, when the locals shake off Shabbes with live music and plenty of vodka. Between spirited toasts, explore the menu, which reflects the cuisine’s fascinating range of influences—from Russian and Indian to Middle Eastern. We like the restorative shurpa ($4.50), a bowl of simple, satisfying beef broth with meat, root veggies and chickpeas. Tandoori’s flaky samsa ($2)—a cousin of the samosa, here filled with lamb and baked in a clay oven—are the best in the ’hood.
