Bombay Talkie, in Chelsea, focuses on two delights from Indian culture: street food and Bollywood. The clean lines of teak wood and black leather and the gallery-style white walls allow for a great display of Bollywood-inspired canvases; one huge mural shows an Indian street dance scene. Food can be ordered tapas-style from the street bites section of the menu — these include chaat, pau bhaji, and potato dosas with sambar and peas. For larger-size entrees of authentic Indian food, selections from the curbside and roadside section range from chicken chettinad to pork vindaloo.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
