Dosa Garden's menu brims with authentic Indian and Sri Lankan dishes. Begin breaking bread with a date, friend, or soft-hearted velociraptor with a meatless appetizer such as the panner pakora, a dish of deep-fried Indian cheese cubes coated in a spicy besan batter. The restaurant's namesake dosa––thin rice-and-lentil crêpes––are available plain or stuffed with a vast variety of exotic fillings. The masala dosa finds itself spun around a dollop of mildly spiced mashed potatoes, and the mysore cheese dosa smuggles spicy chutney, cheese, and potatoes inside a savory batter blanket. Once appetites have been suitably piqued, engage their undivided attention in an entree such as the lamb curry, a delicacy stewed in spices from the Chettinad region, or the sheek kebab, featuring ground and marinated chicken roasted in a tandoor clay oven.
Mill House Restaurant's stonework builds up a façade that lends the eatery a traditional flair that perfectly synchronizes with its menu of Old-World Italian dishes. In the kitchen, chefs ladle marinara, white-wine, and cream sauce over fresh, piping-hot pasta and seafood, along with classic cuts of veal, chicken, and pork. The kitchen doesn't scrimp on dessert, either, and prepares each offering from scratch so customers can end meals on a sweet note by pairing their sugary treat with a house-made cappuccino or the faces of unsuspecting dining partners.
Kinara dishes up an authentic Indian menu in a casual, BYOB restaurant. Pre-meal nibblers such as the chicken and coconut mulligatawny soup ($4.25) pair well with tandoor-oven–baked traditional naan ($2) or a chicken-tikka-stuffed variation ($4). Like a DeLorean hot-rodded with a flux capacitor, Kinara’s entree selections span various meat and veggie dimensions. The rice casserole vegetable biryani ($13.95) and the spicy hara bhara kabab ($13.95) cater to herbivore diets, and almond curry-infused chicken korma ($14.95), lamb curry delicacy roghan josh ($15.95), and spicy crustacean classic shrimp vindaloo ($16) please meat eaters of all stripes.
Through a set of solid mahogany doors, the dining room at Remington’s teems with seasonal dishes inspired by the Jersey Shore. Executive Chef Dominick Rizzo gathers ingredients from farmers, fishmongers, and local cheese makers from the tri-state area, letting the harvest inform his constantly changing menu of upscale American cuisine. Recent dishes have included locally caught fluke sautéed with yellowfoot chanterelle mushrooms and served with lentils and a drizzle of chive oil. For libations, Remington’s sommeliers refer to a long list of wines from Europe, South America, and California. All this good cooking comes with good scenery to match—there’s a 5-foot freshwater aquarium decorating the dining room, alongside hand-painted murals of beaches, ocean scenes, and Moondoggie’s leash.
In a dining room the 2010 Michelin guide described as "a fresh, modern interior soaked in beautiful, natural light," according to their website, servers at Indian Clove deliver a diverse roster of Indo-Chinese dishes. As patrons sip salted, spiced lassi, daily lunch buffets heap plates with both vegetarian and nonvegetarian entrees. Grilled-chicken tikka and lobster cook inside the traditional clay oven known as a tandoor as chefs with a "serious talent for Indian fare," according to Michelin, prepare classics such as samosas and lamb vindaloo. Drinks and live DJs complement these classic flavors in the bar and lounge, where hanging orange lamps sprout from carefully watered light bulbs to illuminate cocktails.
