Where New Yorkers Actually Eat in Times Square
With lunchtime seven days a week, Utsav offers a $21.95 all-you-can-eat Indian buffet consisting of nearly three dozen dishes. The food is various and subtly spiced, and always includes tandoori chicken, saag paneer, dal makhani, lentil salads, and a shrimp or lamb dish, plus a choice of two desserts. Warm bread is delivered at intervals. The views of the skyscrapers all around the second story dining room, and the elegance of the space are other pluses. The chance to overeat so profoundly makes the price worthwhile. Note: The entrance is on 47th Street.
