Behind an entryway guarded by brass and ceramic figurines, Rasoi—which means kitchen in Hindi—serves up traditional Indian fare bursting with aromas of cumin, garlic, and ginger. Black, lacquered tables populate with salmon and lamb dishes roasted in a clay tandoori oven. A full menu page of vegan and vegetarian dishes mingles fresh chickpeas and eggplant with dry mango powder and green cardamom. And, after sopping up the last of a three-course Thali feast, guests can sip on a sweet mango lassi or rub the mint-green walls to test whether they’re scratch-and-sniff.

At Mehak, which means “aroma,” crisp white tablecloths support plates of marinated salmon and baked shrimp alongside curry dishes and warm naan bread. When patrons are not busy sending an expeditionary force of spoons deep into steamed rice pudding to seek out pistachios, they can ask servers about the weekend brunch buffet or gather intelligence on nearby vegetable samosas.
