Midtown Restaurants $$

    Tamarind Restaurant, 10010 Madison Square

  41-43 E. 22nd Street - (Park Ave. South-Broadway) - New York, NY           
Owner Avtar Walia created a sophisticated, warm and harmonious setting for Tamarind in New York City's bustling Flatiron section to reflect the diverse foods of India's regions when he opened his trend-setting restaurant in January 2001. He selected the name Tamarind for his first solo restaurant venture to showcase the versatility of a beloved ingredient, one that is familiar and used extensively in the preparation of the subcontinent's cuisine.
Instead of concentrating on one of India's many cuisines, Mr. Walia offered a wide range of dishes featuring unique and seductive spices and unusual ingredients prepared by a team of expert, dedicated chefs. Tamarind's cool and elegant space with its vibrant modern look coupled with subtle traditional elements, was quickly embraced by New Yorkers and visitors from around the United States and countries abroad. It occupies 4,500 square feet in a former Woolworth company warehouse, with seating for 130 people.

In addition to the live characters, there are a number of audio-animatronic props, sounds, and special effects which contribute to the overall atmosphere of the club. The animatronic creatures visit from the "spirit world" to wisecrack and wish happy birthdays.

The three-act play, starring Jeanne Moreau and Marie Bell, ends with the words "Et hop! Par ici, la bonne soupe!" here meaning: "step up (to the roulette tables), and put your money down, which will give you winnings and ensure you the good life." The play was such a success, it was followed in 1963 by a Twentieth Century Fox Film bearing the same title and based on Félicien Marceau's original 1958 play. Among top-ranking stars in the film were Annie Girardot, Jean-Claude Brialy, Claude Dauphin and Franchot Tone.
