Utsav is an Indian restaurant in the Theater District that operates with the speed and ferocity of someone who’s as stressed about making curtain call as you are. This 46th Street spot is ideal if you want something warm, spicy, and delicious but you don’t want to worry about waiting for a table - the space is giant. We like the dal makhani and butter chicken, but you can’t really go wrong.

We typically love ourselves some Michael White. Though his new hotel restaurant Ai Fiori is a sprawling space with more room than they know what to do with. Set inside The Setai, this is a bit of a cookie cutter hotel restaurant - one that isn’t bad, but just isn’t quite our style.
