Possibly our all-around favorite newish spot in the city; hands-down our favorite spot for Asian Italian Indian Southern-American cuisine (sometimes all in one dish). The inventive, flavor-packed cooking surprises rather than stuns, satisfying both the serious foodie and the food-shy (especially at the more affordable lunch). Don’t skip the standard-sounding bibb lettuce salad. You’ll do well with the hot fried chicken vindaloo or hand-pulled pasta. Servings aren’t huge, thus everyone should get their own slice of Maypop pie. It’s all beautifully plated, in keeping with the room’s high style. Make sure to check out the lenticular mural from both sides.
