Four of us dined here before seeing a nearby play, and all of us remarked about what a great meal we enjoyed. It's a relief to have a good restaurant in this location that I began to fear was a cursed address. Byram's was here for too many years, outlasting its relevance in its twilight years with mediocre food, tacky decor, and an owner who allegedly became a local menace. Next we had a couple with good intentions but zero experience in restaurant ownership. Now, finally, we are presented with an establishment with a lot of promise.
We were seated quickly, but I got a glimpse of the bar, which was nearly empty - a good sign to me, because it may indicate an emphasis on food. The decor is nicely understated, purged of the garishly blinding pseudo-elegance that marked the Byram's era. Papadum was immediately served with a trio of garnishes. We ordered four appetizers, and all were excellent with their own unique flavors.
Four entrees followed with shared naan, and I appreciated being able to tailor the spice level to our own palates. I ordered Indian hot, and it did not disappoint. All dishes had rich & complex flavors, and were prepared by an expert hand in the kitchen. Our table was laden with food, and the check was surprisingly small for such an ample feast.
The restaurant was well occupied during our visit, and I am hopeful that Lemon Cuisine of India will maintain its good food & service so that I can return many times.
