Guests at Bhojan⎯Hindi for "homestyle meal"⎯share platters of Gujarati and Punjabi cuisine, famed for its emphasis on vegan and vegetarian dishes. Stuffed with lentil dals and chickpea fritters, the menu has been praised by the Village Voice for its authenticity: "There are several Gujarati snacks here that can be found only at a handful of other New York restaurants," the reviewer noted. Patrons can dip puffy fresh breads into paneer- and eggplant-based entrees, or snack on small plates and chaat—traditional street-cart fare. And besides catering to vegetarian and health-conscious diets, the menu is also completely kosher, bringing together more culinary traditions than a U.N. potluck dinner.
The cuisine may be homestyle, but the decor is anything but. Spherical pendant lamps dangle from a ceiling lined with shiny copper woks, giving the dining room a modern vibe. In keeping with its upscale appearance, Bhojan's 2010 opening was high-profile enough to be noted by the New York Times and Grub Street.
