Bhatti is a nice Indian restaurant in Murray Hill that gets crazy busy, so make a reservation, get there on time, and go heavy on the kebabs (their specialty). But most importantly, bring some wine. This spot is BYOB, and you can have an ideal affordable date here by filling your table with dal, spicy meats, naan, and whatever wine you decide to bring along.
