$79 3 Course Dinner For Two & 4 Cocktails/Wines/Beers (a $143 value)

Helmed by a chef whose resumé boasts Michelin-starred establishments, and winner of a slew of applause from The New York Times and Huffington Post, Tribeca centerpiece Benares upholds "culinary standards that are high" with "fresh ingredients delivered daily" (NY Times).

Grab your $79 pulse (a $143 value) for a 3 Course Dinner For Two that includes 1 Appetizer, 2 Entrees, 1 Order of Rice, 1 Order of Naan, 1 Dessert, and 4 Cocktails, Glasses of Wine & Beers.

Chef Dhandu Ram - formerly of Michelin-starred Tulsi - combines a specialty in Tandoori dishes with his years of refined training and impressive experience to whip up savory enchantments like Tawa Scallops pan-seared in a sauce of cilantro, chili, ginger, mango, & tomato relish.

Don't underestimate the juicy Lamb Chops on the rib bone, marinated to perfection and cooked in a traditional clay oven. When in Benares, it would be negligent to miss out on tandoori innovations, namely jumbo prawn drenched in mango, chili, rice vinegar, ginger, and molasses à la Aamiya Jhinga.

With a list of carefully-curated wine to amplify each bite, take your taste buds southeast on a bon vivant adventure to far off lands...

Inspired by the beautiful city of the same name within the western Indian state of Utter Pradesh, Benares encapsulates what most New Yorkers dream of finding in their ideal Indian cuisine mainstay: authenticity, a welcoming atmosphere, and enough options to appease even the pickiest of eaters.

Whether you take your family or your date, both experiences will end in utter delight based on incredibly concocted dishes, sumptuous wine, and an intimate atmosphere buzzing with an energy that fuels you through your unforgettable evening.

Spices, aromas, and warmth trickle from the kitchen as Chef Dhandu Ram works his ingenious magic, launching your feast with decadent Crab Chettinadu (garlic, ginger, roasted coconut and spice-seasoned crab meat), or stuffed Adraki Samosas ideal for the meat-averse.

More daring palates will venture towards Punjabi Goat Curry (a North Indian delicacy), while others will prefer house favorites, the Tandoori Hen and Salmon Tikka providing just as much of a cultural excursion as the former.

Butterscotch banquettes and red accent art recall spices like turmeric and saffron, creating a modern simplicity that centers the focus on each stunning dish in front of you.

Boasting magnificent wines, a coveted location, tons of local adoration, and a menu that will have your gourmet heart aflutter, Benares will be a journey rather than a destination...

All selections will be made from the restaurant's Full Dinner Menu.
