Indian food from the city Benares and all over. That means many vegetarian dishes, like roasted turnip soup or corn, yam, and chickpea kebab. Tamarind's Peter Beck, who consulted on the sprawling menu, also emphasizes seafood, and there are some meat options. The spot is decked in intricately embroidered Banarasi saris and serves lunch and dinner.
