Awadh makes northern Indian food like slow-cooked meats, kebabs, and biryani cooked in clay pots with naan layered over the top - which alone is worth the trip. This two-story place also has lots of room, and it’s nice enough for a fifth date or a dinner with your grandparents who are visiting from Westchester.
