Description

Jessi and Jennifer Singh, the team who created three acclaimed Australian restaurants, Dhaba at the Mill (sold in 2013), Horn Please and Babu Ji (both sold 2015) bring their signature creative and fun approach to Indian dining to NYC.

The Hindi term Babu Ji, when used playfully is what we New Yorkers might call the mayor of the block. In India, a Babu Ji is that self appointed neighborhood ambassador who knows everyone and everything that's happening the village. He's a real character who always has a great story.
When it comes to food, he's equally enthusiastic. A Babu Ji unashamedly indulges in food and hospitality. He laughs loudly and revels in his food, company and atmosphere. He absolutely loves being served.

We love this type of dining spirit. We have created Babu Ji, the restaurant with this dining ethos in mind, hoping to provoke this gregarious, spirited dining attitude in our guests.

The food at Babu Ji is simple yet remarkable in the general Indian dining scene as it's made from high quality ingredients, cooked earnestly and offered in a considered and regularly changing menu that spans Indian street food, cross regional curries and tandoori specialties. We've stocked the beverage fridges well with a large selection of craft beer, imports and an approachable but interesting wine list.

Jessi is the man behind the pots, whose cooking has been celebrated by the most respected Australian publications such as The Age Good Food Guide, Broadsheet, Cheap Eats
