Darbar Grill Celebrates India With “Special” Buffet
Darbar Grill, which serves up an excellent $10.95 Indian buffet on 55th btw. Lex+3rd, will be changing things up a bit for the next two weeks. Starting today they’ll be celebrating the “diverse cuisine of India” by offering an all you can eat lunch buffet highlighting regional specialties from all over the country. That means dishes like saag paneer from the North, dosas and idly from the South, coco mustard sauce from the East, and a few Goan dishes from the West. That’s the good news. The bad news is they’ll be raising the price to $14.95! It does sound pretty good though, so part of me wants to make an exception. Although I’ll be very unhappy if after two weeks they decide to keep this whole $15 buffet thing permanently.
This should mean some extra business for Apna Taj, the $9.50 Indian buffet next door. They should get some spillover from the cheapos who don’t want to spend $15 on a buffet. The “special” Darbar Grill buffet lasts until July 3rd. Early adopters, let us know if it’s worth spending the extra $3.
