  1. I had lunch here today and will definitely be back. The dining room is pretty, the food beautifully presented, they have some non-standard things on the menu, and everything I had was good (though the portions could be a bit larger). I went there because they had Kolkata style Jhaal muri (puffed rice, peanuts and various chutneys) which is a fave of mine that i haven't seen in the area. it was served, as it traditionally is, in a small newspaper cone, which i loved. the muri itself wasn't quite Kolkata style, (IMO it had too much date chutney, and not enough mustard oil) but it was very tasty, and i give them credit for having it. the pan fried idli were very good, they had a nice masala on them and came with a very good tomato chutney, though i would've liked them a bit more pan fried. and the okra side i got was very good too--simply prepared with chili and mango powder, but done very well, and there aren't that many places here that make it like this. My friend had the paneer with green chutney and lamb with apricots and liked both. they have some non-standard things on the menu, which was nice to see, like dahi vada, chicken choorma, goat with turnips and more. they also have a 3 course lunch deal for $24 i think. everything was beautifully plated and the service was good.

  2. How's about Indique (Connecticut Ave., Cleveland Park metro)? Didn't find a thread for it on this board. Spent a really fun HH there last Friday. A couple of lovely cocktails that went down WAY too easy (sparkling wine w/ lychee juice; tamarind "martini") They have a page of Indian small plates that are reasonably priced and tasty, and the people-watching from the bar tables at the large window is quite entertaining.
  3. This place has gotten a few mentions - most recently in this weekend's first edition of the Wall Street Journal's Weekend rag. Slated to open in November, it's supposed to bring Portuguese-influenced Indian food from the Goa region, as well as coconut and curry leaf dishes from Kerala and almond and pistachio infused cuisines from the Mogul region. 633 D St. NW. Any other buzz?
  4. Andy Hayler's Reviews --- I want to point out to our members something about both Tamarind and Zaika - London's original Michelin one-star Indian restaurants (both were awarded one star back in 2001). When I looked at Tamarind's website, it listed Zaika as one of their "sister restaurants," which surprised me. However, a quick search revealed that both restaurants were taken over in 2012 by a separate restaurant group: Zaika is an Indian restaurant in Kensington, London. From 2001 to 2004 it was awarded a Michelin star, making it along with the Tamarind in London the first Indian restaurants to be awarded stars. In 2012 it was taken over and joined the same group that also owned the Tamarind restaurant. Note also that Tamarind reopened last year, doubling in size. Neither of the two restaurants currently has a Michelin star. On a humorous note, the new restaurant group reopened Zaika as an *Italian* restaurant, before wisely switching back to Indian in 2013.
  5. Andy Hayler's Review Ha, ha, ha! "The bill actually arrives in an elegant wooden box, and experience tells me that the more elaborately the bill is presented, the worse it will be. At Essex House in New York, Alain Ducasses’s venture in that city that opened in 2000 and closed six years later, the bill initially came with a wide choice of Mont Blanc (and also Cartier) pens to sign the credit card. When that happens you know you are going to be hosed."
  6. Has anyone been to Le Mirch? Never heard of this type of cooking before - Indian with a French influence. Was thinking of our Diwali dinner and having it there. S
  7. Spiced roasted chickpeas Tamarind margarita Gul mina cocktail - feni, gin, kokum, lemon, basil Naan. I think this was the sourdough naan Bengali roasted carrot salad, with pine nuts and lime juice Crispy soft-shell crab, green mango salad Goan grilled calamari, with lime, pickled onion and cilantro Mexican Coke really works well with this kind of food. Milk braised baby lamb, spring pea salad Asparagus with coconut. Braised gingered greens Pilaf with morel mushrooms Masala chai Goan bibinca, apple-rhubarb compote. Vanilla bean kulfi, edible gold leaf, strawberries, rosewater syrup. Grilled pineapple, vanilla, black pepper syrup. Would definitely return. My only regret is that this restaurant is 3,000 miles away from me and I can't just fly to NYC whenever I feel like it. Paowalla 195 Spring Street (Sullivan Street) SoHo
  8. Ate at Turmeric pre-concert last month (Brandi Carlile and First Aid Kit - I know, kind of the opposite of death metal and prog rock). Not too shabby. Nice space and tasty food with good service. Is it stunning? no. Does it suck? Hell no! I'd put it in the solidly good bordering on very good mark overall. It's pretty convenient to Wolftrap, too - not right next door convenient, but close enough to make it an easy pre-concert place to try.
