PLAN DATE: MON / NOV. 19
Transport yourselves to all the heat and flavor you crave and need as winter approaches with a legitimately incredible Indian feast at Adda. Here, Indian food is put into perspective, crafted with the spice and nostalgia of the two chefs’ longing for home, with a focus on authentic, homemade ingredients that aim to evoke India itself. You can get your usual fix of garlic naan and chana masala, but don’t be afraid to go for rarities like flavorful tender lamb biryani or new fusion kale pakodas. Rated some of the best Indian in NYC, this is what this place is here for– so you don’t settle for your average neighborhood fare.
Keep the fresh ingredients philosophy up with cocktails and craft beers at Maggie Mae’s Bar, a clean and rustic neighborhood haunt with unpretentious bartenders and strong drinks. Think wood, leather, brick, and candles for that real hunting lodge feel that makes it extra pleasant to sip on something and stay out of the cold with your person. The homey vibes make this the ideal place to stretch out and chase down a big dinner, where ample space means you can cozy up and get comfortable.
