Veda is an upscale spot in Rittenhouse that serves some of our favorite Indian food in the city. The Calcutta pork ribs are thick, grilled, and juicy with a chutney glaze, and the lamb roganjosh is meaty and rich, though it’s worth asking for a little extra heat (the default is a lot tamer than you’d expect). But their goat cheese-stuffed naan is truly special and should be the first thing you order when you come here.
They also have a great Happy Hour, with $7 cocktails and snacks ranging from $3-6, and a bar that overlooks Chestnut Street, allowing you to have a drink and some masala tacos as you watch the rest of the world go about its day. Plus, they’ve got one of the only truly bottomless brunches in the city, making it a very popular option for the day-drinking crowd.
