Wats with american n all? i don understand y this place is called the new yorker.. this is a restaurant in the lines of creme centre and bombay blue and for that matter i dono y these restaurants r called so either! So lets forget the name.. the ambiance is nice.. service is ok..
i ve been to this place couplea yrs bak with a mood for something american and was disappointed havin a panneer sandwich or something.. So i decided to skim thro the menu this time .. labanese mexican italian indian and chinese.. they ve got a combo of typical fried rice and gobi too! Obv i decided to try the american platter for starters, which had onion rings, mexican tikka (rofl) and yummy cheese corn balls. To be honest, it was actually satisfying than i thought, tasty! But hell i made the mistake of ordering quesidilla (i remember eating a good baritto here once). But this so-called quesidilla was hard and crisp indian roti stuffed with capsicum. All the love i ever had for quesdilla jus vanished and decided never to come bak.
Somehow the baritto was almost authentic and the russian salad was pretty good too. Last but not the least the Very strawberry soda was so sexy i burrped it in till the last drop. So m totally confused… if ur lucky u cud have a good meal here, if not curse ur luck and the cook!
Ambiance – 4/5
Food – 3.5/5?
Service – 3.5/5 (one of those place with waiters that look north-eastern (to be politically corect!) and don speak a word to u nor reply bak wen u ask for something as tho ur speakin latin)
Price – A sure 500 for a couple with drinks (non-alcoholic)
Will i ever go back? – if m outa choices and m in nungambakkam area… yea mayb

i din like don pepe much will write on it soon din think its authentic either
Quite Frankly this place has nothing do with New York or America!!! More like a potpourri of cuisines…The food just doesn’t have an authentic taste and that Lebanese platter is something to be avoided! The only thing that was good was the sizzler…I mean it was not sure now!
Do visit Don Pepe (if its still around) on Cathedral road- that’s a good place! At least it was 🙂
The original New Yorker in Bombay was the first of its kind (at least for me) way back in the 80s. As a lil kid it was exciting to taste foods from all over the world.
Of course when I went to the Chennai New Yorker yearssss later, it was a total disappointment. The food is too Indianised for the america-return/intl-food-aware Indian population.
I really like and appreciate your article.Really looking forward to read more. Really Great.

New York City is the cultural capital of the United States, This mixture of people and their cultures has created a melting pot of food fusions. The food of New York City has become a reflection of the city’s history, people, and their lifestyle. And that's the reason why NEW YORKER in INDIA serves a variety of international cuisines adapting the local taste preference.
