New York City is the land of themed restaurants, gourmet food trucks, and the $1,500 hot dog. No one has ever accused this city of being short on dining options. You can find any cuisine in any price range, in any neighborhood. Imagine our delight when we discovered the Moti Mahal Delux, a new Indian restaurant on the Upper East Side. Quality and authentic Indian cuisine served in a modern, upscale environment. In one word: indulgent. The Moti Mahal Delux fills a gap in the Manhattan restaurant scene we never even knew existed.
With a team of chefs trained by India’s very best, and a menu of traditional Mughlai cuisine and Tandoori delicacies, this is fine dining with some serious kick. Crisp wood-panelled walls and a warm glow emanating from the hanging light fixtures, the décor recalls the restaurant’s earthier roots with a dash of New York’s urban terrain.
This is the first of the posh Indian chain to call America its home, but the restaurant has been an international favorite for over fifty years. We here at HudsonMOD foresee the Moti Mahal Delux becoming the Upper East Side’s newest staple. Might we recommend Moti Mahal Delux’s signature dish, the butter chicken? One taste will have you coming back for more.
