Devi, Union Square

Devi - Union Square

Last Friday, we met up with Kunal for dinner. This meet up was long overdue as we’ve been having the hardest time getting our schedules to line up for the past few weeks. I’m really glad that Kunal suggested Devi. This place has been on my “to try” list for a while, and it definitely lived up to expectations.

Located near Union Square, Devi is a beautiful place to walk into. The lights, the smells, the colors! An elegant date night spot without breaking the bank, and it’s also spacious enough to accommodate large groups. We were seated at one of the tables in the back, behind a flowy red curtain.

As with most Indian restaurants, we were spoiled for choices. Lots of veggie options on the menu, including a vegetarian tasting menu. Restaurant Week was also happening, but the vegetarian options were a bit limited. It didn’t make sense for all three of us to get the same entree when the regular menu had many other choices.

We shared the Shaam Savera Kofta, Kashmiri Dum Aloo, and Paneer Masala, which was plenty of food for three people. All very delicious. I’ve never come across Indian food I didn’t like, but Devi clearly offers more upscale, refined flavors. There’s Indian food, then there’s gourmet Indian food, and that’s exactly what this is. I’m all about the sauces, especially that amazing onion tomato sauce from the Paneer Masala. I could eat that stuff over basmati rice all day long. They also have a great cocktails selection. My lavender martini was so fragrant, even across the table.

    Looks like a nice place. I’m really curious about Indian food, a cuisine which I, honestly speaking, know nothing about:)

      Same here! I don’t know very much about Indian food, other than the fact that it is delicious. ;P
