rahi is a Journey Across India...

THE TASTES, VISUALS & AROMA OF INDIA, IN AN AUTHENTIC YET MODERN SETTING.

Rahi (traveler in Hindi) is an artisanal Indian restaurant in Greenwich Village born from a collaboration between Chintan Pandya, an Indian chef with playful artistry, and restaurateur Roni Mazumdar. Guests are taken on a journey through India, with each dish characterized by unique, modern twists on traditional flavors. Rahi’s vibrant menu proudly adopts the local produce of New York, ensuring maximal freshness and seasonality. White brick walls pulse with the energy of black and gold murals, painted by famous artists, Yok & Sheryo. Pattern elements represent fragments of memories, a dream sequence, of a woman traveling around India. Rahi is designed for indulging the senses over leisurely conversation and enticing plates during spirited evenings with exotic cocktails.
