Pondicheri is a popular Indian restaurant from Houston - and an extremely welcome addition to the Nomad/Flatiron world. They might have used the same floor plan as a cafeteria on a Google campus, but the menu is Indian/American fusion that will likely have you leaving happy. The front has an order-at-the-counter situation suited for daytime, while there's also an area for dinnertime sitting down.
Pondicheri is permanently closed.
