At Origin India, even the most traditional dishes undergo an upscale transformation. For instance, naan—the otherwise ordinary staple of Indian cuisine—transcends its origins with wild mushrooms and truffle oil or sweet apricot and raisins. The restaurant’s innovative updates on authentic Indian dishes have drawn media attention from the likes of Rachael Ray, who described the cuisine as "evolved Indian food" on an episode of Rachael’s Vacation. To craft the ever-changing menu, Chef Kuldeep Singh finds inspiration in all corners of the subcontinent—from the Himalayan foothills to Hyderabad—as well as around the world, infusing entrees with ingredients such as Atlantic black-pearl sea scallops, New Zealand lamb, and Old Delhi–style chicken.
To complement the feasts, the restaurant's master sommelier curates a wine list composed of nearly four dozen vintages from France, Chile, Australia, and Italy, and resident mixologist Jozef Letasi crafts absinthe cocktails and cracks open imported beers from India and elsewhere among Asia's seas of bubbling ale. Like the cuisine, Origin India's dining-room decor blends the traditional and the modern, with rich tapestries and pointed arches adding a cultural flair to the sleek leather-backed chairs.
