I had dinner at Agra last week with a friend. It had been several years since I'd been, and I was impressed with both the food and the service. The setting, two intimate rooms on the second floor of a building overlooking Lexington Avenue, is charming. The walls are a jewel-tone red, decorated with various examples of Indian art. We had a table at the window, allowing us to look down at everyone hurrying home from work.
Our meal was excellent. We started with a platter of mixed vegetable fritters - just the right amount for two to share, then had a shrimp curry and an order of Tandoori chicken with rice. We finished with a special dessert made with coconut milk, which was delicious.
The setting really is lovely - for a quiet dinner with friends, a romantic evening out, even for a group (there are some larger tables).
