Opening in February, 2012 Benares will bring Indian classics to New York’s theatre district. Restaurateur Inder Singh, a former owner of Devi and Baluchi, has partnered with acclaimed chef Peter Beck, celebrated for his creative interpretation of his native cuisine at the helm of the Tamarind empire.

The restaurant, richly decorated in shades of mustard, red and dark brown, will be focusing on the exciting spices and diverse produce found within the Northern Indian state of Benares. The flavorful and exotic Hyperbadi cuisine and the exciting spices of Mughlai cuisine will play center stage and be the dominant influences.
