A short walk from Grand Central, Bombay Grill has been summoning up above-average Indian food in Murray Hill since 2001. The unpretentious setting runs to muted orange walls with beige moldings, wood floors, bentwood chairs, and a string of festive red Christmas lights. Traditional Indian carvings, textiles, and embossed tin plaques dot the walls, as do (somewhat incongruously) photos of New York City. It’s a neighborhood spot, attracting a mix of local businesspeople and South Asian families. The menu is primarily Northern Indian, with a wide array of fragrant stews, tandoor-oven dishes, and elaborate biryani rice preparations. The dozen or so Bombay street foods make excellent appetizers, especially the addictive Bombay bhelpuri, a roadside snack best known for its Chowpatty Beach incarnation. Also on the menu are South Indian entrées such as a tasty version of Kerala coconut chicken. Moist poultry pieces are submerged in mild coconut curry enlivened by coriander and chiles.Weekday Lunch Specials
