Description

This is the dawning of the age of peak contemporary Indian.

At least we’re feeling like we’re seeing more and more notable, nay, exciting modern Indian-type openings these days: today with Old Monk, a handsome cornerspot now open in the East Village.

Now, it’s Friday, and you’ve got weekend-ing to do, so we’ll keep this short and to the point. The space is all saffron, colored scarves and portraits of monks talking on phones and taking photos. A good vibe.

The menu’s nicely organized into sections like “Come Together,” “Stay a While” and “Share the Love,” and you can probably guess what they’re going for with each. Your order might start with goat cheese naan with pumpkin and melon seeds or Tibetan-style pork dumplings, unfold with plates of ginger-rum tandoor-grilled lamb chops, continue unfolding with mahi mahi goan curry… start your decision-making process right now, if you’d like. Or you can forgo the decisions altogether and leave it up to the chef with a four-course family-style move.

Beer and wine are on the way with an ex-Eleven Madison Park and Jean Georges sommelier consulting on the menu, so you know it’ll be good.

Now, take a look at the spot and a whole lot of its food right here, then enjoy your end of the week.

In that order.
