Imli Urban Indian Food
Venue says Brunch 12-4pm Sat & Sun! Try customer favorites like the Scotch Egg Burger, Tandoori Pizza, or Bombay Salmon Hash.

Imli Urban Indian Food brings Mumbai’s Parsi cafe culture to the Upper East Side. In addition to typical dishes like saag paneer ($15) and chicken tikka masala ($17), Imli serves a few options that might surprise its patrons. To start, there’s any entire menu of tapas-style small plates meant for sharing. Try Indian shepherd’s pie with ground lamb ($11), tandoori-grilled pork spare ribs ($10) or a deep-fried cauliflower cutlet ($7). For your entree, you might try the Imli beets and paneer ($16), slow-cooked dal made from black lentils ($14), tandoori chicken pizza ($15) or tilapia curry ($20). For even more Indian fusion dishes, return at brunch. You’ll find unusual options like a Scotch egg burger ($13), Bombay salmon hash with a poached egg ($14) and chili cheese toast ($9) on the menu.

Imli Urban Indian Food says
The New York Times writes "A focus on British-accented colonial food and Indian interpretations of dishes like Scotch eggs, pizza (tandoori-style) and a well-seasoned burger with masala-spiced fries sets this Upper East Side newcomer apart from the rush of new Indian restaurants. It has an open kitchen and an enclosed outdoor patio. Manuel Butler, who has cooked at several of the city’s restaurants including Awadh, Sahib and Chote Nawab, is the executive chef."

We are a modern Indian bar and restaurant specializing in small (tapas) plates, exceptional brunch menu inspired by old world Mumbai cafes, and of course all the regular favorites. All in a classy urban setting of exposed brick walls and an open kitchen. Our outdoor patio is perfect for enjoying the great weather and for cozy, romantic evenings. Our full service bar specializes in one-of-a-kind cocktails and an extensive wine list.
