Mina lives!!!

suketu | Aug 8, 2004 05:17 PM

Just came back from an absolutely fantastic lunch at Angon on the Sixth, (E. 6 st. bet 1 & 2 ave) where Mina is doing her magic in the kitchen. I was at Mina's in Sunnyside (which now seems to be closed, btw) last Sunday, and I can now say that her skills have more than survived the crossing over the black water to Manhattan. I went with a party of Bengalis, and we ignored the restaurant's standard menu, and told Mina what we wanted: tilapia with mustard sauce, pomfret, spinach with shrimp, alu tiki, mung dal, haleem, etc. And over the next three hours, out it came, dish after marvelous dish, in pleasant surroundings, with beer and wine. Mina is a partner in the new establishment - she had some sort of falling out with her previous business partners - and also does catering. Caveat Eator: she's still making everything more or less from scratch, so the wait is as long as ever, and there's no telling how she'll do if there are more than seven people at one time in the restaurant. But those alu tikis are actually better than they were in Queens.
