Taj’s grandiose foyer beckons to those in search of an upscale soirée. Seductively lit by antique metal fixtures, the spacious main room fuses Indian ornamentation with minimalist modernism: a long, sleek, metal-topped bar seems perfectly at home amidst carved dark woods and a wall of stately sandstone sculptures. Mellow lounge music adds to the sensuousness, as do the earthy, elegant singles. The smooth specialty cocktails incorporate exotic ingredients like elderflower cordial, and the dishes on the mid-to-high priced menu lend French and American accents to traditional Indian ingredients.Trademark Drink
