A trio of NYC restaurateurs are joining forces to open Veeray Da Dhaba, which will serve "authentic roadside cuisine of Punjab" here at 222 First Ave. between 13th Street and 14th Street. (Thanks to William Klayer for the photos!)
A coming-soon sign in the front window offers an overview what to expect from Sonny Solomon, Hemant Mathur (a Michelin-starred chef) and Binder Saini (former executive chef of Kurry Qulture in Astoria).
"With a devotion to authentic and personalized Indian cuisine, Chef Hemant Mathur and Binder Saini revive the quintessential delicacies found in a Punjabi dhaba, and serve them hot and piping for all who hunger for a taste of India."
No. 222 has been several restaurants of late, including the awesomely named Hungry Wolf (which I swear was never actually open) and Golody Halal Buffet.
