This elegant Upper East Side restaurant serves up hearty Indian comfort food, but the lavish cocktails alone make it worth the trek uptown. The space is cozy yet refined, with whimsical touches like monkey-decorated wall paper and elaborately shaped vintage cocktail glasses. The cocktail menu is heavy on gin, and the offerings—which include the “Aviation” cocktail, made with Ford's London Gin, fresh lemon juice, maraschino, crème de violette and Angostura orange bitters, and an “East India cocktail”, featuring cognac, Combier, pineapple syrup, maraschino and Peychaud’s bitters—skew more Anglo than Indian. The restaurant menu is full of Indian specialties, served with rice, naan, and raita, as well as some delectable bar snacks, including paani puri and lamb seekh kebabs.
