Amma is the Hindi word for “mother,” and if you let Mom take care of you—there’s a seven-course tasting menu for $50 per person—you’ll thank her later. The courteous waitstaff will help you sort out the à la carte menu. You might try crisp fried okra or bhel puri, a lighter interpretation of the classic street food. Thick, buttery tandoor-grilled lamb chops are perfectly complemented by pear chutney. Bread and rice cost extra: Order a side of nicely charred nan to scoop up the tangy sauce of the tender chicken tikka masala. Cut the apron strings? Never.
