Avtar Walia, owner of Tamarind in the Flatiron District, has opened Tamarind TriBeCa in a handsome art deco building at the corner of Hudson and Franklin Streets. A highly skilled team of chefs, representing many of India's varied regions, produces new dishes and classic fare. Further, Tamarind has always focused on pairing fine wines with the dishes Mr. Walia's chefs prepare. Anchoring the dining room at the TriBeCa site is a tandoor kitchen with glass walls and a ceiling-high black metal roof. There's also a mezzanine that is used for dining, private parties and special events.
