Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Walk past the wall of cascading water and descend into Chola, where the mix of modern and traditional décor is as eclectic as the multi-regional menu. Don’t be overwhelmed by the number of options, since you’ll rarely go wrong with whatever you get. A basket of varied kebabs straight from the tandoor includes lamb sausages perfumed with cardamom, while Savitri Amma’s idli (steamed rice cakes) arrive with fresh coconut chutney, a southern Indian specialty. Spices and flavors are blended with balance and care: a delicate cashew sauce infused with saffron- coated chunks of tender lamb, and langarwali dal, a buttery mix of lentils, is flecked with cilantro and intensified by the faint heat of dried chilies.
