Under twinkling string lights and a sheer-red canopy, patrons at Imli Cafe's sprawling outdoor patio smoke rich hookah. It’s just as aromatic inside the café’s dining room, where diners can enjoy the smell of delectable Indian cuisine. Some might detect the aroma of tofu and crab-cake-stuffed paratha, while others might sense the mint chicken being cooked in a clay-oven tandoor. Imli’s menu ranges from naan sandwiches to chicken kebabs sautéed with basmati rice, and guests can finish off their meal with pistachio or mango-flavored ice cream.
