In Manhattan this week for a few meetings, I got a chance to try a new place.
Pongal Restaurant
Pongal, at 110 Lexington Ave in midtown (map), is a vegetarian, kosher, Indian restaurant. (There are four or five kosher, vegetarian Indian restaurants in between 27th and 28th on Lexington).

The menu‘s online – the Alu Gobi was fantastic.

They have a few lunch specials which allow you to sample a number of things, but I find it hard to believe you could really go wrong.
