Utsav Festive India, New York, NY

Utsav Festive India Restaurant Review

: The formal yet lively setting of this vibrant eatery provides the perfect backdrop for the flavorful, authentic cuisine. There are many good selections for carnivores and vegetarians alike---the samosas are a popular starter, and for a main dish, try the tender tandoori ground lamb kebab; shrimp sautéed with mustard seeds, curry leaves and dried red chilies in a coconut sauce; or the Chilean sea bass marinated in the chef's special green chutney and steamed in a banana leaf. The warm atmosphere is sure to make you feel at home.
