There aren’t many hidden happy places in Midtown, because, well, it’s mostly very crowded and depressing. But if you need somewhere to sneak away and ignore the 50 emails you have sitting in your inbox, we’d suggest going to Bengal Tiger. This is a low-key spot that’s up a flight of stairs on 56th street, and the best thing to order here is the three course prix fixe deal. For $21.95 you get your choice of appetizer, entree, and a delicious rice pudding for dessert. We especially like the chicken makhni, the sweet vinegar-y sauce that comes under the samosa, and that the hottest level of spice is actually as spicy as an HBO sex scene.
