Nirmal’s is a modern spot with a lot of bricks, a pretty tiled bar, and some great upscale Indian food. We’re fans of the beef curry and the tandoori spice-rubbed grilled paneer, as well as the excellent pakoras and samosas with mint chutney. A round or two of some of the best mules in the city won’t hurt, either.
