In general, West Village restaurants tend to be a little busier than they deserve, but at Rahi, the opposite is true. It’s not hard to make a reservation at this Indian restaurant on Greenwich Avenue, so it’s perfect when you need a last-minute place with great, interesting food. You can get things like prawn curry with uni butter, housemade paneer with guava compote, and a good plate of duck over a mildly sweet green curry - and whatever else you order, you should add a side of naan and start with the five-spice cauliflower. Mains start around $24, so this isn’t quite an every-night kind of place, but it’s great for a date or a dinner with a few people you need to impress.
