Indulge in a splendid, four-course dinner of decadent Indian trios paired with delicious wines when chef Vikas Khanna and owner Rajesh Bhardwaj invite you into their Flatiron hot spot. Your evening will begin with a tour of Junoon’s unbelievable spice room, where chef Khanna will show you how he creates the unique, signature blends that you’ll experience throughout your lavish meal. Dinner will showcase an expansive range of Indian flavors through triplets of Sigri/Patthar, Tawa, Handi and dessert. In case you’re not already an Indian food guru, we’re talking: Murg Makhanphal Kebab with purée of avocado, ginger juice, cilantro and Garam Masala; Kakori Kebab with finely minced lamb, cardamom, green papaya and spiced yogurt; star anise sea scallop with cracked white peppercorn and cinnamon roasted pepper chutney; and Nadru Kofte with Kashmiri lotus root, homemade cheese, cashew nuts and cardamom. Both Khanna and Bhardwaj will also speak about their journey from top-notch restaurants in India to New York City, bringing your evening journey all the way home.
