Those looking in from the sidelines at the formidable challenge of simultaneously running no less than six of New York’s Indian restaurants may be forgiven for confusing Michelin-starred Chef Hemant Mathur with a starry-eyed tenderfoot who’s bitten off more than he can chew. Yet Mathur is supremely well-poised to make a quick meal of this – and other culinary hurdles – for with Chef Mathur in the kitchen, success comes by the fistful. With Mathur at the helm, New York’s Devi is the city’s first restaurant to earn a Michelin star. When Mathur opened Tulsi the very same mark of distinction ensued. You can find his newest fare at Haldi and Chola.
