Bengali Place on Central Park South -- Still Exist?
I'm here for the first time in a few years, and my other half saw a mention of the Bengali restaurant on an upper floor along Central Park South. I said, "Oh yeah! I remember the place. I always thought about going up there just for the view, but I can't imagine it's still there."
So, if anyone can remember what I'm talking about, I'd be interested in knowing whether it's still there, and whether it's tolerable. Call me what you will, but I've always been skeptical of the cuisine from countries where half the people are starving.

Thanks much. Wasn't looking for Bengali food, but rather for the restaurant in that space with the upper floor view of the park. Do you know if Nirvana was replaced by another restaurant there, or was the space converted to something that is no longer a restaurant?
p.s.: If Bengali food is anything like the food in Burma, which is the next country east, it's nothing to seek out. I ate at the best Burmese places in Rangoon about 15 years ago. Combine the worst of Chinese and the world of Indian, and you've got Burmese cooking. My guess is that Bengali would be two parts bad Indian and one part bad Chinese. For some reason, there was no Thai influence in Burma, anyway.
