The best things at Saffron, a consistently excellent Indian restaurant on Magazine Street, are the dishes that seamlessly incorporate Southern flavors into their food. We’re talking about the comforting seafood gumbo loaded with tender okra, perfectly cooked gulf shrimp, and plenty of curry spice, and the roasted oysters sprinkled with curry leaves and served with fluffy naan. The restaurant works best for a special occasion, where you can drink a couple martinis, lean back in a cushy booth, and chop it up with the chef after dinner when he’s making his rounds in the dining room.
