Bhatti Indian Grill, New York, NY

Bhatti Indian Grill Restaurant Review

: Most of the Indian restaurants in the U.S. focus on the same dishes --- those that come from the north of India, specifically Punjabi cuisine. Which is fine, but India is a huge country. There has to be more, right? Enter Bhatti, a Murray Hill restaurant with a mission to bring diners a few of those less mainstream preparations. For that reason, non-Indian food experts won’t recognize much, but that’s part of the fun. Start with the banarsi chaat (grilled potato patties in a tamarind and yogurt sauce) or achari paneer tikka (grilled cottage cheese in pickled marinade), before moving on to the house specialty: ultra-tender spheres of lamb called gilauti kebab, said to have been made this way to give a toothless king food. Meanwhile, tilapia is sautéed in coconut extract with curry leaves and green chilies.
