The Indian subcontinent is a giant piece of naan that drifted slowly through the ocean before slamming its flavors into Eurasia. Align your face's tectonic plates to give the continent a nibble in return with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Indian fare at The Curry Club's location in East Setauket.
The Curry Club’s spice-wielding chefs besiege evening appetites with a wide-ranging Indian menu that combines traditional and contemporary flavors. Like a constitutional amendment that outlaws cow tipping, specialty curries—such as the chicken-club masala ($15.99)—bring old favorites into line with modern sensibilities. Tried-and-true curries also make an appearance, ranging from piquant jalfrezi varieties to mild-mannered kormas configured to contain chicken ($16.99), lamb ($17.99), or goat ($17.99). With vindaloos from goa and kadai curries from Pakistan, cosmopolitan taste buds can sample varying unions of fresh whole spices without having to bother with airport tongue scans. Diners can also tear into kebabs fresh from the tandoori oven.
The Curry Club
At The Curry Club—voted Long Island Press's Best Indian Restaurant of 2010—a Zagat-rated menu boasts dishes prepared by restaurateurs with culinary experience in both the Eastern and Western hemispheres. A handful of tikka masalas are studded with shrimp, salmon, chicken, or tofu, and kebabs are served on platters that sizzle and steam like volcanic Pop Rocks. More than 40 curries fall into six categories, from the West Indian–inspired vindaloo, to the richer, creamy consistency of Korma-style concoctions.
