A hypothetical TV-infomercial for Indian Accent would go something like this: “Hey, business powerhouses of Midtown! Are you sick and tired of the same old lunch spots? Do you need to impress your clients or your incredibly boring boss with filled kulcha breads and precious scoops of delicious kolhapuri salad in the middle of large white plates? Come on down to Indian Accent on 56th Street and be the hero of the office.” While they do have a la carte and tasting menu options for both lunch and dinner, the best value is the $38 prix fixe lunch that comes with two courses of your choice.
