Not To Be Missed. The Amazing MASALEDAR CHOP (Lamb chops marinated in nutmeg, cinnamon, aromatic Indian herbs), Pictured Above.

tamarind Mr. Walia useAvtar Walia,(pictured left) previously owner of the acclaimed Tamarind in the Flatiron section (now closed), is devoting his energies to his newest restaurant Tamarind TriBeCa in Manhattan’s prime and most sought-after neighborhood.The architect and designer of Tamarind TriBeCa is Wid Chapman, who heads the award-wining firm of Wid Chapman Architects in New York. The modern 11,000 square foot space seats 175 people on two levels, the main dining room and a 1,500 square foot mezzanine.  At the entrance is a stylish bar and cocktail lounge with a marble and onyx bar, and a communal wine table framed by a wall of Brazilian teak, and lit by an illuminated wine display.

Dramatic ceiling high windows face Hudson and Franklin Streets, adding drama to dining at Tamarind, and L-shaped banquette seating in low booths can be found around many of the windows. Another interior element is the wide range of materials and shapes used to create the imaginative custom lighting, both ceiling mounted and wall displayed.  These edgy designs are used to define each of the varied areas in the restaurant.  Limestone clad columns reach the 18 foot ceilings and below, polished, sustainable teak wood and streaked marble, cover the floors. Intimate booths with banquette seating and sheer curtain dividers are located under the mezzanine. A floating cantilevered stair leads up to the mezzanine to be used for dining, private parties and special events.  The area is surrounded by glass which visually connects diners on the two levels

The overall effect is breathtaking and dazzling and is enhanced by extraordinary service, under the direction of  the polished Manager Christopher Corda. (Don’t forget to check out the new Tamarind Lotus Room, bar lounge area and  the mezzanine).

The food represents many of India’s diverse regions to produce new dishes and classic fare, in addition to selected offerings drawn from Tamarind’s original Flatiron location.. Anchoring the TriBeCa site is a windowed tandoor kitchen crowned by a unique black metal roof.

Among the exceptional dishes featured on Tamarind’s menu are: Puff pastry, filled with melted cheese (yes it’s mozzarella, but who cares. It’s delicious).  Dover sole is baked in a clay pot, layered with whole spices, and bathed in a pasanda sauce;  while Lobster is combined with shitake mushrooms, chopped onions, garlic, and  white wine;  Bataki Kosha, An unusual Duck dish, is hand rolled in a rice crepe, with onions, garlic, ginger, garam masala; while Prawns are sautéed in coconut, lemongrass, dried red chilies, spiced chickpea flour cake.

Also loved: Achari hiran ki chhampen, the legendary Venison chops marinated in pickling spices, roasted chickpea flour and hung yogurt;  MASALEDAR CHOP (Lamb chops marinated in nutmeg, cinnamon, aromatic Indian herbs was equally divine; MALAI HALIBUT, Halibut flavored with mace, cardamom, in coconut, ginger sauce may the the seafood star; Raan e Dumpukht, Lamb shank braised in Indian rum, onions, cashew nuts, saffron and nutmeg is the best shank I’ve had in years: fork tender, huge and impeccably spiced (worthy of a visit in its own right); MAJJIGA PULUSU, a fascinating mélange of Buttermilk, green plantains, yams, radishes, white pumpkin, carrots, okra, mustard seeds,and curry leaves.

Of course you must order the superb Indian breads (check out the minted and rosemary varieties) and flavored rice as well as cooling flavored yogurt and sweet chutney on the side. And don’t skip dessert. Tamarind TriBeCa takes them seriously. We loved the fruited cheese cake and warm carrot pudding and there are many others to choose from.

Tamarind’s focus has always been to pair fine wines with the food his chefs prepare. And the TriBeCa restaurant has increased the number and variety of wines in its inventory.  Prices are fair and the selection is good. Tamarind maintains a well-stocked full service bar and high end products. The cocktails are both inventive and generous.

Forget all your clichés regarding Indian food and for an elegant night out or just some of the best Indian cooking in Manhattan, head for Tamarind TriBeCa. You won’t be disappointed.
