The East Village has gone from dangerous to trendy over the years and there are now many excellent restaurants in the neighborhood. Although this block of beautiful old brownstones on E. 6th St. is no longer solidly Indian, there are still a number of Indian restaurants vying for your business and Mitali East is one of the best. I love their Chicken Vindaloo but I have never had anything I didn't like there in many, many visits over the years. This time was no exception. The food is very good and the prices reasonable. If you like good white wines, they have a very reasonably priced wine list, including Pouilly Fuisse. I used to resist buying it, even at such a good price, operating under the assumption that such a good French wine didn't go well with Indian food. That turns out not to be the case at all as far as I can see. If you go to Mitali East, consider "splurging" (in quotes because it's not expensive) on a good bottle of wine to go with your meal. My guess is you won't regret it. Either way, you will enjoy the food. Just be aware that if you ask for something to be "hot," that is exactly what you will get!
