uphill alert - Sitar in midtown

Peter Y. | Dec 7, 2004 02:09 PM

Sitar (south side of 56th st. between 5th and 6th aves) has hired a new chef - went for my usual $10 lunch buffet today and it's a definite improvement. They had a well-balanced lamb & onion-sauce dish instead of the usual vindaloo-vindaloo-vindaloo lamb rotation, and the tikka masala used chicken that had been properly yogurt-marinated. Everything was brighter - better silverware, bright yellow daal instead of the previous brown unflavored glop, they also added a great pickle that wasn't overly bitter like other places. So very happy, because it's a great subsidiary choice to Utsav, less haute and formal.
