Mehtaphor, our Tribeca restaurant by Chef Jehangir Mehta

Mehtaphor at Duane Street Hotel serves modern eclectic cuisine inspired by Asian and Indian flavors. Located on the first floor of the hotel, this intimate restaurant and cocktail bar features the cuisine of Chef Jehangir Mehta, an “Iron Chef America” and “Next Iron Chef” contestant and owner of the East Village’s celebrated Graffiti restaurant.

A master of flavor, Chef Mehta’s menu features artfully creative dishes incorporating blends of spices and herbs guided by Ayuvedic principles. Guests enjoy tapas-style selections in a casual yet sophisticated ambiance highlighted by warm golden colors and deep woods. A large communal table functions perfectly for large groups and a cozy cocktail and dessert bar is perfect for after-hours drinks and bites.

In the morning, Mehtaphor serves breakfast to all Duane Street Hotel guests, and room service dining is also available.
