The Cloves Restaurant's menu showcases the cooking techniques and ingredients that have come to define the cuisine from both the country's northern and southern states. A clay tandoor oven bakes marinated meats, skewered vegetables, and soft naan, and liberal doses of saffron, fenugreek, and ginger paste add their distinctive south asian piquancy to entrees. These flavor combinations inundate multiple taste buds, oftentimes in the same bite, as in the case of the tomato-based vindaloo sauces laced with fiery chilies and tangy vinegar.
Immense floor-to-ceiling windows flood the dining area with natural light, helping the curvaceous track lighting and dangling pendant lamps illuminate the dangling uvulas of laughing diners. Taupe-hued walls stand in stark contrast to the dark tables and flooring, and they remain relatively unadorned except for a smattering of Indian-influenced paintings.
Long hailed for a mastery of ham far beyond the skills of mere mortal meat cookers, the meat mavens at HoneyBaked Ham invite you to put their newly honed turkey skills to the test with today's Groupon: a whole roasted turkey breast for $12 (an up to $25 value). Get your moist turkey breast unadulterated, or let the HoneyBaked masters finish your bird with crackling sweet glaze, which may or may not be cooled by having volunteer glaze-pixies fan it with their wings. Call one of HoneyBaked's participating locations (found here and in the sidebar to the right) to reserve your order, and pick up your juicy bird.
