Served amid Italian-marble walls, saffron-colored drapery, and candlelight, Mantra Restaurant’s fusion of Indian and French cuisine has garnered high praise from Zagat and Gayot. As 2011 winds to a close, couples or friends sit with roasted-tomato vodka shooters and reminisce about the year’s romances, professional advancements, and apocalyptic predictions. A small course sates cravings for healthful bites, with seared scallops in a strawberry-chili chutney or a warmed asparagus and endive salad that combats the cold weather. Entrees of goat-cheese-and-potato tikki fill meat-free bellies with a hearty taste of South Asia, and the chai-spice-encrusted tuna edifies palates with a citrus glaze. Dinner fades out as fenugreek crème brûlée tops white tablecloths with a side of lychee panna cotta that marries dairy and fruit in a union of sweetness.

Mantra's dishes top tables within a renovated, circa 1800 bank. Bartenders pour drinks behind a former teller's cage, taking inspiration from the past, and halogen lights and lasered mirrors bring the space into the modern era and ensure that nobody's date is a vampire in disguise.

Reviews

The design of the restaurant is crisp, clean but exotic with soaring ceilings and comfortable, intimate spaces perfect for a romantic dinner.

The Boston Foodie, 12/7/09

I was really impressed with the restaurant's interior design...a stunning decor that pays homage to its Indian cuisine without appearing kitschy.
