Please note: this business is now closed; nycgo.com keeps record of many old and closed venues. Mint is a labor of love for Gary Sikka, who has created an Indian restaurant that celebrates the food of the north and south, with a contemporary presentation for today’s diners. The 110-seat restaurant is brightly decorated with orange, red and fuchsia drum lights snuggled together throughout the long dining room. The extensive menu includes traditional favorites like tandoori chicken, specialties like lobster masala as well as vegetarian options. Mint is open from 11:30am to 11:30pm seven days a week.
