THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tamarind Restaurant Review

: Those who think all Indian restaurants are dark and filled with brass plates, figurines of gods and goddesses, and heavy fabrics will not recognize Tamarind, an Indian spot from the restaurateur behind Dawat. The dining room is bright and modern, awash in soothing neutral tones with a high, sky-lit ceiling and boxy paper light fixtures. Booths are private, up a step and tucked away in little nooks and the tables are well spaced. The menu goes beyond that of other Indian restaurants with interesting dishes like grilled scallops with a coconut mint sauce; fennel and onion seed spiced cod and crab cakes; or chicken breast filled with mushrooms, spinach and cheese served with a tangy nutmeg, garam masala and yogurt sauce. And, of course, all of the fragrant, crisp breads---like naan, paratha and poori---are there to accompany the food. Service is solicitous without being (too) overbearing.
