Yuva, New York, NY

Yuva Restaurant Review

: Bollywood fans may recognize the name from the popular film, but this spot takes its cue from the Hindi translation of its name, meaning “youth.” Along the upscale “curry row” of 58th Street, Yuva serves traditional fare with contemporary flair at its modern-styled restaurant. With welcoming earthy tones and rustic-style wood trim, a first stop should be at the polished bar, to indulge in a creative cocktail such as the Kama Sutra or Monsoon Wedding. Locals mix with Midtown professionals as an eager staff moves about the restaurant offering first-rate recommendations from the savory menu, such as the Afghani kebab (roasted, boneless chicken marinated in yogurt, cardamom and cloves); the Chilean sea bass lightly marinated in coriander and green chilies and then flash grilled; or the jumbo Brazilian lobster tail served on a bed of basmati rainbow rice. There are also copious dishes to share, including saag paneer (homemade cheese stir-fried in crushed garlic and simmered in spinach), as well as a serious assortment of breads and raitas.
