Bombay Bar & Grill lures diners with an approachable menu of mildly spiced Indian cuisine that Zagat scored as “very good to excellent.” To enhance the flavors of free-range lamb and chicken as well as the housemade cheese, the chefs track down seasonal herbs and vegetables and incorporate them into their ever-changing menu. Skewers of meats and vegetables marinate in yogurt and mustard sauce before being roasted over the tandoor oven’s bed of smoldering charcoal, and orders of chicken or lentils simmer in creamy curries.
Colorful, mismatched pendant lights hang from the dining room’s ceiling and illuminate the area’s bright-red and deep-purple walls. A turquoise-hued bar dominates one side of the restaurant, tempting guests with its selection of Indian beers and its bartenders who look like they need to hear a good joke. Belly dancers occasionally stop by and amp up the cultural atmosphere.
