What's your familiarity level with Indian food? What most people are familiar with is the cheap corner takeout, with uninspired recipes and no presentation buffets. Many diners in the U.S. have not had the privilege of eating gourmet Indian cuisine. Travelers to New Dehli and other parts of India have fallen in love with the exquisite flavors and textures of Moti Mahal Delux. This beloved international chain now has one North American location: the owners own the full rights in our continent. I learned that certain ingredients just couldn’t be found locally, so they have to be imported from India. That’s really saying something, when you’re talking about New York City, land of everything! The special butter, with the terroir of India, along with certain fresh spices to be hand-ground on site are flown in. So, if you want the best in New Dehli’s flavors here, you have to head to NYC! I was glad to have been given the opportunity to experience it.
This Upper East Side restaurant is located in a more residential section of the city; it’s a destination in itself . . . but the secret’s out! Moti Mahal Delux still maintains a relaxed vibe, so business casual seems to be the unspoken dress code. Lights are kept low and tables are intimate with soft chairs.
