Named after the small local eateries that dot highways across Punjab, The Dhaba cultivates a welcoming atmosphere with attentive service and home-style meals made with halal meats or vegetarian favorites. Pairs of diners crunch house salad alongside a shared starter such as paneer pakore—savory fritters oozing with soft, white cheese and compliments about each diner’s choice of tie. For the entrees, kashmiri chicken tikka masala’s titular meat luxuriates in spices and yogurt before crisping to a golden brown in a tandoori oven, arriving on tables adorned with dollops of cream. Alternatively, chefs mix the Dhaba lamb curry’s tender cubes of boneless meat with a blend of spices like DJs wielding flavor turntables, yielding a rich broth that diners can mop up with a rice pilau and one of three types of crisp, buttery naan bread. Finally, diners can wash down their feast with two included glasses of wine.
Named after the friendly, casual eateries of India's Punjab province, The Dhaba explores the rich flavors of South Asia, including influences from Iran and Afghanistan. Guided by knowledgeable servers and a vast menu, guests embark upon tasting treks that highlight fresh, seasonal soups and snacks inspired by streetside food carts and rickshaws fashioned from giant samosas. Halal meats such as chicken, goat, and lamb marinate in flavorful curries before basking in tandoori clay ovens, and a hearty lineup of meat-free entrees lures vegetarians with spinach dumplings, paneer, and spiced chickpeas. Instead of hibernating in a rock-candy cave, sweet teeth flock toward Gajrela, a traditional fudge made with carrots, cashews, milk, and raisins.
