Utsav is a traditional Indian restaurant that prides itself on their foodís authenticity. Utsav opened in 2000 and is family owned and operated. Nandita Khanna manages the restaurant for her grandmother, Emiko Korthari who is a restaurateur based in Tokyo. In 2015 Nandita gutted and renovated the entire restaurant. She also brought in Consulting Chef Hari Nayak who specializes in preserving traditional Indian cuisine all the while adding his own New York flare to some dishes. Utsav Indian Bar & Grill offers traditional Indian fare as well as more innovative dishes. One of their most popular items off the menu is the Duck Pondicherry, which is pan seared duck breast with roasted onion and orange sauce. Another fan favorite is Utsavís Duck Seekh Kabab that has marinated duck, star anise, and orange chilli chutney. Chef Nayak also enjoys substituting traditional ingredients for those that are healthier and a bit different. For example, instead of using peas in the Samosa they use edamame, which makes the dish a little more unique. Utsav Indian Bar & Grill is unique itself because it is located on a skywalk between two buildings. This gives the restaurant an amazing, one-of-a-kind view and atmosphere.
