THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Monsoon Cuisine of India Restaurant Review

: Those seeking to indulge their Indian food craving can head to Monsoon, a midtown hotspot featuring elevated Indian cuisine. The interior is modern and sexy, a dominating bar enticing revelers with top-shelf liquor blended into designer cocktails fusing east and west. The addictive "Let the Right One In," featuring pear vodka, Cointreau, lime and jalapeƱo, packs a punch on the finish. The traditional menu is tempered to suit American tastes. Starters include the requisite samosas and pakora, as well as tamarind chicken wings and lamb naan. Mains include several curries, such as butter chicken and beef madras, as well as salmon tikka and mango prawns.
