Shiva Natarajan, the owner of Chote Nawab up until this past February, also had about a dozen other restaurants around the New York area that he recently divested from, including the next two you’ll see on this list. Not much has changed since the ownership transfer – this restaurant focuses on, and is best at meat dishes from around India, including a spiced lamb delicacy called Tunde ke Kabab, and dum briyani, a rice dish served with pastry around the rim of the pot that it arrives in.
Owned by the same people as Dhaba, Chote Nawab (for some reason) tends to be far less crowded. Chote Nawab focuses on meat dishes from around India, including a ton of chicken and lamb dishes, all served in a modern, friendly environment.
