First sign you've gone upscale: the waiters take your order on a tablet. Then there's the decor, all ornate wall panelings and modernist lighting. But well-to-do trappings aside, Mela ultimately distinguishes itself with some of the finest Indian cuisine in the city. Notable entrees include the duck jalfrezi and baingan bhartha; the seafood hot stone entree with salmon and scallop is a great first-date ice breaker. As for the brunch buffet—first marvel over the sheer vastness of the offerings, then hit up the minibar serving Indian-inspired cocktails. Prices skew a few dollars higher than what tandoori aficionados may be used to, but you truly do get what you paid for.
