Babu Ji

Don't let the din of Babu Ji fool you. Hidden behind all the noise comes a meal that is truly spectacular. Details of each dish are well thought out and subtle nuances of flavor are coaxed from every item served. Gol gappa, an airy crisp that started our meal, contains three layers of sauces that work harmoniously to give you the happiest mouthful possible. Gobi Manchurian, cauliflower florets coated in a sticky-spicy-sweet sauce, belie their vegetarian nature and speak to the meat eaters in us all. Even the palate cleanser of lightly salted cucumber spears came at the perfect moment for a pause between all the brightly flavored dishes, and set us up perfectly for the end of the meal: intensely delicious homemade kulfi, akin to a rich gelato. The tasting menu, at $60, is a total steal and ensures diners a seat for the evening. Otherwise, waits outside can grow exceedingly long while diners inside happily enjoy the evening filling their tummies.
