Watch Bollywood actors shake and shimmy their way across TV screens while dining on authentic Indian food in Midtown. Some of the many entrees at Desi Spice include tandoori dishes in vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian. The bread is baked in-house using a clay oven, and the garlic naan is not to be missed. Ask for your meal to be made spicy, but keep a cooling dish of raita-a yogurt and cucumber concoction-nearby to temper the heat. The owner, Mani, often comes into the dining room to regale diners with tales of his life in India. If the weather is nice, an outdoor patio offers alfresco dining.
