Fodor's Expert Review Indian Accent
No restaurant in India is better suited as an introduction to Indian flavors than Indian Accent. It’s inside a delightful boutique hotel in one of Delhi’s quietest—and wealthiest—neighborhoods; the quiet decor has been chosen to ensure that nothing distracts you from your food. Not that anything is likely to; the chef, Manish Mehrotra, is among India’s most celebrated, and he has been working to redefine “fusion” cuisine in Delhi since Indian Accent opened in 2009. The food combines Indian flavors and preparation methods with Western or Asian ingredients, or vice versa. Some dishes, such as the foie gras–stuffed galawati kebab, the mango pickle–rubbed Chilean spareribs, and the bacon-and-apple kulcha bread, have achieved considerable fame. These dishes are usually part of the 11-course tasting menu, which is paired with five glasses of wine. Not all the experiments work perfectly, but most do. Leave room for dessert, in particular the cheesecake.
