If you’re in the mood for a slightly more expensively elevated tasting experience, we recommend you persuade one of your well-heeled gastronaut buddies to treat you to dinner at Manish Mehrotra’s Indian Accent in Le Parker Meridien Hotel. The soothing white-and-gold-toned space was populated by fleets of loquacious bartenders dressed in dark Nehru jackets on the evening we dropped in, along with assorted globe-­trotting nabobs, many of whom were clustered around the bar sipping tall, colorful drinks with names like Mughal Fortification and Bagpipes for Bangalore. Mehrotra, who comes from the ancient city of Patna in northeastern India, spins out similarly flowery taste combinations (vegetarian keema made with soy and topped with quail yolk; crisped, cricket-ball-size dosas flecked with bits of black truffle; servings of morels from Kashmir dusted with walnut powder), although for maximum theatrical effect my daughter Jane suggests you spring an extra $22 for the “tasting of pappadam” supplement, which includes six gourmet interpretations of this famous snack food from regions around India, all arranged upright, like fluttering sails, on a long wooden tray.


Diners can opt for a three or four courses prix-fixe or a chef's tasting.
