The tandoor bakes everything from lobster to paratha at this Hell's Kitchen Indian eatery from chef-owner Anil Kumar (Indigo). Family owned-and-operated since 2008, the restaurant specializes in traditional fare from the northern part of India, ranging from appetizers like shrimp balchao—two jumbo shrimp bathed in coconut and mustard-seed sauce—, to entrees such as beef curry, tender lamb Jalfrezi and rich paneer sag. To cool the spice, seek out tropical, fruit-forward cocktails mixed with ingredients like fresh mango, guava puree and a house curry elixir.
