Indigo - drab Midtown Indian

Tried Indigo, an Indian restaurant at 50th between 1st and 2nd, last night. It's supposedly a big hit with the UN crowd. I'm not quite sure why. The restaurant was fairly deserted on a Tuesday night, and had good service, but not much else. The soy and spinach patties I ordered were hard and tasteless, and served with an ok sweet chutney and an unpleasantly vinegary mint chutney. The malai kofta I ordered -- cheese "dumplings" in a creamy gravy -- had a sauce that was bland and mild, even though I specifically ordered it very spicy. The dumplings themselves were mostly paneer with a rubbery outer texture and not much flavor on the inside.

Overall, very disappointing.

Stars: 1/5
