Looking for NYC hot spots with exotic flair

My tastes seem to run to Indian/Asian/Middle Eastern, but I also like a good bar/lounge scene. Have been there done that with Illi (which I LOVED), Junoon, Tamarind, Dhaba, Kittichai, and Spice Market and Buddakan (which I DON'T like in terms of the food) Any suggestions of something that we haven't tried? We tried Asiate last weekend and were disappointed.

  1. Cherry just opened in old Romera spot in Dream Downtown

      1. Awesome - I booked both places! Thanks!

        1. You might like Pranna for drinks and appetizers. Also consider adding Naya, Chote Nawab, Pig & Khao and Zengo to your itinerary.
