Adam Erace turns his eye towards Marcie Turney’s and Valerie Safran’s Indian BYOB, Bindi.
Though Turney trained with cookbook author Julie Sahni, the dishes arenâ€™t particularly traditional. The menu is a romantic marriage of Indian ideas and American ingredients, producing offspring like samosas stuffed with parsnip and paneer, and yellow dal soup enriched with Green Meadow Farm butternut squash.
Fans of Lolitaâ€”Turney and Safranâ€™s Mexipolitan flagshipâ€”will notice parallels: the cash-only policy; the youthful staff sporting all black; the exotic BYOB mixers, like lip-puckering pomegranate lemonade and summery cardamom-spiced mango sharbat; and a tendency to go a little crazy with spice and sauce.
