This South Indian restaurant is our favorite kind-of-fancy, sit-down spot in the neighborhood. The waiters wear button-downs, there’s a water feature near the entrance, and the big round tables are set with elaborate colorful menus. While Podi specializes in crispy dosa flavored with fragrant from-scratch spice blends, everything from the spicy Chettinad goat curry to the Amaravathi biryani is flat-out delicious. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner daily, but keep in mind that the wait times can be well over two hours on weekends. Be sure to cap off your meal with some of their house-blended chai.
