Setaara doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside is a tropical oasis that borders on overstimulating (in the best way possible). Filled with lush plants, lots of colorful, souk-style furniture, and birds singing along to French brassiere-esque music, the courtyard’s focal point is a giant, sparkling model of the Eiffel Tower. It might all seem a bit much, but the food will win you over. The warm bolani is served with a bright and spicy jalapeño chutney, and the lamb shanks fall apart with a nudge of your fork and come with mounds of flavorful rice. Don’t skip an order of the mantu beef dumplings, which are drizzled with a creamy yogurt sauce you’ll want to lick off the plate.
