Last night Jon and I had date night at a new Indian place called Rahi in the West Village that came highly recommended by my little sister (shoutout to lil’ G!). It was really delicious, and I’d very much recommend it to anyone looking for creative Indian cuisine in the city.
For starters, we split the paneer appetizer (this was probably our favorite – fresh paneer cheese in tandoori), and the octopus (grilled, and served in a tumeric coconut foam).
For mains, Jon and I each had the soft shell crabs in black ink with mango curry, which we’ve heard was the best thing on the menu. We also got a side of naan and saag. The soft shell crabs were absolutely scrumptious – perfectly crispy and juicy inside.
It wasn’t cheap, but we left extremely full, and everything was delicious!
Also, back by popular demand, Jon’s one line review:
“Amazing food! But I was starving so I wouldn’t trust that opinion”
Here are the details, if you want to check it out: Rahi (60 Greenwich Ave, New York, NY 10011).
