Kolkata (Calcutta), often seen as India's cultural capital, manifests itself through one very spice-rich, bright, and unique newcomer to New York's "Curry Hill". Impress your foodie-self through our newest restaurant: Haldi, now available on the menu. (P.S. Lunch specials exclusive to Stadium!)
Michelin-starred chef Hemant Mathur is behind the knife (and you bet the tandoor) at Haldi; making unusual but scrumptious dishes that reflect the strong Indian-Jewish heritage of the food's native region. With a repertoire that includes the highly-regarded Tamarind, Tulsi, Devi, Amma and Diwan Grill-- let's face it-- Chef knows his way around the spice rack.
Tastebuds go nutty for the famed Chicken Makmura, minced chicken in almond-cashew sauce, and tender, baby lamb chops get dressed up in a spicy mix of habanero chilies, raw papaya and poppy seeds. Sound exotic? It is. This is one tumeric-y spot you don't want to miss. Don't believe us? Believe NY Times' Blog Hungry City, here. Try it out and let us know what you think!
