The Mehtaphor kitchen is abuzz with activity. Wafting aromas, delicious food bubbling on the stove, fresh, fragrant garnish and innovative presentations, Mehtaphor gives what it takes to make your dining experience delightful and memorable. Here’s a sneak peek into the menu and its signature dishes. If metaphor is a figure of speech that compares two unlike things that actually have something in common, Mehtaphor is inspired by Asian urban tastes and scents and wrapped in Jehangir Mehta's singular chef voice. There is a distinct point of view here and a chef who touches every dish. Uber chic and warm, Mehtaphor situated in Duane Street Hotel, poised to stand its own ground amidst the Manhattan skyline, for its eclectic cuisine and charming dining experience. With several intimate dining areas, including a dessert-cocktail bar, a true cocktail bar, a time-worn wooden communal table fully wired for laptops and internet access, and a delightful dining room. The entire restaurant is awash in glass frontage. The clean, contemporary shell is accented by warm golden-print fabric on banquettes (with little cubbyholes for purses, bags, briefcases and other accessories) while intricate wooden shutters run half way up the expansive windows.
