THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Devi Restaurant Review

: Named for an Indian mother goddess, Dévi delivers subcontinental delights, thanks to super chefs and owners Suvir Saran and Hemant Mathur. A la carte menu items delight, like Gudiya’s mushroom toasts (fenugreek leaves, onions, tomatoes) with a side of “not-so-dull daal” (daal makhani) and Bombay-style tandoori halibut (bottle masala, coconut rice, spicy Indian slaw), but the real culinary paradise comes in the form of the various tasting menus (which may be paired with wine). A procession of small plates arrives at the table like seemingly perpetual gifts to the taste buds. The décor hovers between home and heaven. Multi-colored lanterns hang from the high red ceiling and a cozy banquette is swathed with oranges, purples and reds. The walls, draped with orange and gold gauze fabrics, boast temple artifacts, one of which is a centuries-old ornate stone door.
