Who comes to New Orleans and eats Indian food? Smart people who appreciate stellar, unpretentious service and elevated, sophisticated, delicately seasoned food in a comfortable, elegantly contemporary setting. Share a few sathi, small bowls served with crisp roti flatbread for dipping or spooning: an excellent daal (lentil stew) or saag paneer. And/or the chargrilled oysters, a NOLA staple done here with curry leaf. Standout entrees include the goat masala, subtle and unctuous, and a spice-crusted gulf fisha—another perfect melding of the two cuisines. Cocktails mirror the menu, with crafty hints of tamarind or cardamom; beer and wine are thoughtfully paired. If you think Indian desserts are an immaterial afterthought, the ethereal “Curry is My Jam” ginger cake will change your mind.
