A restaurant with an aesthetic as stimulating as its menu, Calcutta Cricket Club serves up tangy small plates and fragrant curries that pair beautifully with its mango-and-gin cocktails. For a group meal you can share plates of butter chicken and lamb ribs in the pink-and-mint-walled dining room. For a date, people-watch on the front patio under tiki umbrellas or hide out in the secluded terrace. Either way, a visit here feels like slipping into a world where old-fashioned class and vibrant modernity meet.
