In our November issue, four popular food bloggers became your guides to the best hidden restaurant gems and regional specialties of their cities: Atlanta, Houston, New York and Los Angeles. Now we’d like to add three other foodie-favored cites to the mix: Washington, D.C., Chicago and Miami. Check these three food bloggers and their best picks for their regions.
The first thing you’ll notice about Dhaba is the ambience. Nestled in the Flatiron district of Manhattan, the cozy atmosphere makes it a perfect first-date or date night location. Wait service is very attentive—before you’re nestled into your booth, there will be warm naan (leavened bread) on your table with assorted sauces. Go for the classics: Dhaba’s chicken tikka masala is expertly prepared and will not disappoint. The desserts may leave much to be desired, but fortunately, you’ll be too full after dinner to even bother (108 Lexington Ave., New York, N.Y.; 212-679-1284).
