While I recently made note of Manhattan Fine Dining’s new “Mediterranean Way” menu after seeing it pop up multiple times in my Facebook newsfeed, I also seemed to recall hearing something about the restaurant serving an authentic Indian menu now, too.

So when I saw Manhattan among the choices on DoorDash a couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to sample one of those Indian dishes — and it was so good I immediately called a friend and made plans for a visit to the restaurant’s COVID-19-compliant dining room to see if the Mediterranean menu was just as delicious.
