Saravana Bhavan is another Indian gift to the West. Its chain of Southern Indian Vegetarian Restos stretches in a mala of 60 + locations starting in India , Asia , the Middle East , NYC & recently Paris.
My teacher , Jorgen C. , had told me about the NYC location in Curry Hill. It has now become a "must-visit " on every trip I make to the city.
Having lunch there every Sunday after attending AM Mysore at AYNY, then walking back downtown to my flat in Soho became a regular drill during the past winter.
Here's a picture taken from my teacher's recent trip to India during lunch at Saravana Bhavan Delhi. Dosas , idlis , uthapam , sambar , poori & thalis.
The right side of the menu has images of Balaji AKA Sri Venkateswara.
