valentines day indian- need help

mdog Feb 7, 2007 12:50 PM

Both the wife's and my work schedules mean that we have to celebrate vday the day after- which will be good because we won't get suckered- my question is- could anyone recommend an indian restaurant that is amazing- romantic- and not RIDICULOUSLY expensive? Thanks much.

    You may want to consider Devi, you can check their website: http://www.devinyc.com.
    I went there once and really enjoyed the desserts, I don't like spicy (hot pepper) food, so it was the wrong place for me but the friend I went with liked very much.

      Tamarind is a good choice (on 22nd)

          Devi would also be my rec. The superb cuisine is some of the best anywhere, and the space on two levels has unique, elegant decor. For added coziness and a romantic feel, ask to be seated in one of the curtained alcoves at the rear of the main level. While it is upscale as Indian restaurants go, considering the high quality of the cuisine and the overall ambiance, I don't consider it ridiculously expensive.

            We like Bread Bar @ Tabla. A bit different, but it's chill, cozy, and always delicious.

              if you can't get reservations at tabla...try surya in the west village...food is amazing...atmosphere is amazing, i had a great experience that which was a result of the quality of food and service

                Thanks for all the ideas. I made reservations at Bread Bar at Tabla- looked unique and tasty.
