As Americans become more familiar with regional Indian food and flavors, expectations change. Which is why the owner of Basera decided to upgrade, renovating and overhauling the menu (but not enough to alienate a loyal United Nations lunch crowd). Sophisticated renditions of street food like bhel poori are offered alongside inventive novelties like sweet-pepper-and-soybean curry and the tandoori-treated halibut.Prix-Fixe Menu
