The Two Chefs Behind This LIC Indian Restaurant May Love an Inventive Meal, But For Them, It Still Has to Taste Like Home
Hunting for a legitimate Indian feast? Look no further than Long Island City's Adda. Here, the food is crafted with the spice and nostalgia of two chefs’ longing for home, which is why they use authentic, homemade ingredients that aim to evoke India itself. You can get your usual fix of garlic naan and chana masala, but don’t be afraid to go for rarities like flavorful tender lamb biryani or fusion kale pakodas. Rated some of the best Indian in NYC, this is what this place is here for—so don’t settle for your average neighborhood fare.
Keep the fresh ingredients philosophy up with cocktails and craft beers at Maggie Mae’s Bar, a clean and rustic neighborhood haunt with unpretentious bartenders and strong drinks. Wood, leather, brick, and candles make for that real hunting lodge feel that's especially cozy, no matter what time of year it is. It's an ideal place to stretch out and chase down a big dinner.
