I am looking to find a good indian restaurant that is BYOB. I have been to Panna II and Chennai and Tiffin (not sure if all are still BYOB) and am considering Panna but it is SO tiny and we are looking for a place where the four of us can relax and enjoy our booze and our food for a while. Can be anywhere in Manhattan. I wish Vatan was BYOB--the atm is good there (we can sit comfortably for awhile).
We are also trying to find a nice sake bar to go to afterwards (strange pairing for the evening, I realize--but a friend is in town from WA and Indian and Sake bar is what she wants). I have been to Kyotofu and liked the sake a lot there. But again-it's so small and crowded. We'd like a place where we can sit and relax and drink for awhile.
Thanks for any suggestions.
