Here are the latest restaurant openings in New York City:

Indian Accent

Indian Accent, whose Delhi location was featured on the 2015 San Pellegrino list of 100 Best Restaurants in the World, has opened its first international location—in Midtown Manhattan.

Rohit Khattar, chair of parent group Old World Hospitality, said in a press release, “We have been evaluating multiple opportunities to open another Indian Accent, but none have been as exciting and promising as New York City. We hope that the immensely discerning diners here embrace us as much as those in New Delhi have.”

Chef Manish Mehrotra’s contemporary Indian menu combines modern techniques and traditional flavors. The menu includes Baby Squid with crispy rice and everything chutney; Pepper Roast Dosa with wild mushrooms, black truffles and water chestnuts; and Pork Belly Vindaloo with Goan red rice.

Diners pick out two, three, or four courses, or choose the chef’s tasting menu comprising seven dishes.

The wine list counts 300 bottles, and cocktails as well as a large selection of nonalcoholic drinks are available.

Open for dinner Monday to Saturday, 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Lunch service is forthcoming.

Sushi Ganso

Harris Salat and Tadashi Ono, who are behind izakaya Ganso Yaki in Brooklyn, opened Sushi Ganso this week. Sushi chef Tomo Hayashi, who used to work at Sushi Azabu and Matsuri, holds court with classic Tokyo-style sushi and sashimi.

Small dishes include Ankimo, steamed monkfish liver in yuzu ponzu; and Uzaku, broiled freshwater eel rolled in cucumber. A daily omakase set is offered, with the chef’s picks. 

Sushi Ganso has 36 seats, including 12 at the sushi bar, and is connected by an interior door to Ganso Yaki—where patrons can also order sushi.

Open daily for dinner from 5 p.m., and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.
