Cinnamon Indian Cuisine in Rhinebeck (Wonderful)

Jim Leff | Dec 19, 2011 07:56 PM

I had a chance to gulp quickly thru the buffet at Cinnamon, a newish Indian in Rhinebeck.

There have been a few decent South Indian places in the Rhinebeck/Red Hook area, but, judging from my quick sample (super hurried - I never expected it to be this good, I just ran in for a quick bite), this one's extraordinary.

And that's just judging from the (unadventurous) buffet. Their menu includes stuff I've seldom seen, like Kolmi no Patio ( a Parsi shrimp curry thinckened with chiles, tamarind, and sweet jaggery), Eral Varuval (Tamil prawns), Kodi Vepudu (Andhra gingery/garlicky chicken), and Lal Mass (Rajasthani red lamb curry with garlic and tomatoes).

They don't seem to be doing a cute pan-Indian thing. It's not that sort of place, or crowd. I think they're just really into making these dishes.

Here's the menu
