Indian Clove in Staten Island relocated, food remains stellar

jpiglet | Sep 18, 201206:56 PM     2

My wife and I were dismayed when North Shore stalwart indian Clove apparently closed a few months ago, after several weeks of mysterious disarray. However, during a drive last week we realized they had actually just moved, about a mile down Clove Road into a shopping center on the other side of the expressway. We went last night and the food remains excellent, though they're still getting organized in their new digs.

Indian Clove is glorious North Indian, recognized by the Voice in 2011 as "Best Indian" in the city, but plagued by chronic under-appreciation and too many empty tables. Clove tries a little too hard to look modern, and prices are higher than I'd like them to be. Despite these misgivings, the food is often spectacular, and they are worth a trip out of the way. Standouts are all the chicken Chettinad and bhuna chicken, appetizers samosa channa chat and poori bhaji, and the malai kofta.

Go there. They're really good.
