Village Voice's Description

Presenting food principally from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, and eschewing the dosa-based cuisine we generally associate with southern India, Southern Spice offers a unique menu that will thrill Indian food enthusiasts-and anyone else who loves pungent food. The mutton menu is a particular delight, including a curry from Chettinad in a pale gravy with a delayed burn, and another that sinks goat in a wonderful sauce of minted coconut milk. From the limited seafood menu find varuthameen, a shark mash-up that would taste great on a sandwich. Vegetarians will delight in a tandoori-cooked entrée of paneer. The premises feel like a library reading room.

Tips from foursquare

  • The New York Times on 05/06/10

    The vegetable biryani is a marvel. Each forkful unearths new treasures: swollen golden raisins, cashews, and an abundance of cauliflower, green beans, carrots and fresh peas.

  • Amanda M. on 07/14/10

    Get the dry lamb or the goat they are amazing!

  • SkeeterNYC on 04/17/11

    The minced shark here is one dish you NEED to try.
