For nearly two decades, skilled chefs have woven rich seasonings into tandoori-baked meats and robust vegetarian entrees amidst the inviting interior of Peacock Indian Restaurant. Peacock's extensive menu bursts with classical Indian cuisine, such as tandoori chicken ($17.95/whole order) served sizzling from a traditional clay tandoor oven and sprinkled with kashmiri paprika. Gosht saag soaks tender chunks of lamb in thick spinach gravy ($14.95), and shrimp curry plunges plump seafood into a pool of zesty onion and green pepper curry ($16.95). A variety of vegetarian dishes charm herbivorous appetites better than a kale corsage, with options such as piquant baingan bharta ($10.95)—hearty tandoori-baked eggplant sautéed with tangy onions. Vibrant artwork adorns the walls of Peacock's warmly lit, refined interior, which dazzles with attentive service and crisp white tablecloths performing buddy comedy with similarly suited cloth napkins.

Inside a sizzling tandoor oven, 15 styles of naan, paratha, and roti soak in the heat until they start to take on a slight char. Peacock's chefs then pull them out of the oven, serving them hot as an accompaniment authentic tandoori meats and curries. Dining here is an experience for all the senses, from the soft cheese stuffed inside paneer naan to the spicy murg vindaloo. Almonds and pistachios inside the nuts naan give a tender crunch and make it easy to sop up sauces such as the creamy murg kurma or one of many shrimp or lamb dishes. Vegetarian options also abound for people eschewing meat or hoping a vegetable a day will keep a full range of medical professionals away.
