Chefs at Indian Clove put a modern twist on the bold, flavorful spices of traditional Indian and Indo-Chinese cuisine. Working with organic long-grain rice and bread recipes that date back as far as 200 years, they forge aromatic South Asian dishes using fresh ginger, saffron, garlic, ajwain, mustard seeds, and curry leaves. The chefs' dedication to tradition is also evident in their use of the clay tandoor oven, which roasts skewers of marinated chicken, paneer cheese, and even lobster to tender perfection.

From the Press
  • Indian Clove is, "a clever new Indian restaurant with a fresh, modern interior soaked in beautiful, natural light, and a serious talent for Indian fare.? ? 2010 Michelin Guide according to Indian Clove's website
  • "Drawing on his Indian roots and Boston and Denver chops, [chef-owner Ansari Ahamed] mixes Anglo-Indian favorites like no-filler crab cakes and Mulligatawny soup with tandoori classics such as tikka masala and spiced lamb korma, braised so tender it practically melts in one bite." ? New York magazine
  • "As is its tradition, Indian Clove makes a nice impression with its fine food and sweet service." ? Staten Island Advance

To help keep spirits high, the lounge also serves specialty cocktails in addition to wines plucked from the restaurant's climate-controlled cellar.

Though Fushimi Modern Japanese Cuisine & Lounge's menu and daily specials board boast French-inspired fusion food, its sushi is deeply rooted in tradition?and this combination has earned its dishes Zagat ratings and a Michelin recommendation. Chefs may reinterpret the presentation of Japanese staples?such as the tuna sashimi, which they set on broad leaves next to bean-sprout-entangled roe?but they still stay true to traditional flavors. By contrast, cooked fusion entrees tend to incorporate the unconventional, such as the tuna burger with spicy aioli, available on the weekend brunch menu, and the mushroom risotto made with black rice (a dish praised by New York Magazine in their critics' pick review.)

At all locations, the decor also melds old and new. At the bar at the Staten Island location, crimson light filters through a canopy of metallic foliage, casting a moody aura across Buddhist statuettes imported from Asia. The neon-lit Williamsburg location has a sleeker feel, its booths nestled in large circular openings that bring to mind subway tunnels or the oversized portholes of Paul Bunyan's mythical submarine. In Bay Ridge, the stateliness of traditional chandeliers contrasts with the bold colors of wall-sized photographs.

The flickering fireplace in the dining room of Pepper Jack Grill casts a warm glow over the bilevel booths and pale-yellow walls adorned with local artwork. In the kitchen, chefs grill rib eye steaks alongside Angus beef and turkey-burger patties for patrons to customize with toppings from the burger bar such as apricot-chipotle barbecue sauce and handcut bacon. Pintsize chandeliers light the full half-moon-shape bar, where bartenders pour signature sangria, shakertinis, and goblets of black-cherry-bourbon sours. Live entertainment tickles the ears of diners while they watch sports games on flat-screen televisions or meander toward the outdoor patio lounge to shush overhead stars.
