Pippali Opens In NoMad
Pippali has opened in NoMad. Named for the Indian long pepper, the restaurant, located at 129 East 27th Street between Lexington and Park Avenue South, offers a memorable blend of spicy, hot, tangy and sweet interpretations of regional cuisines of India.
It is the latest project of chef Peter Beck and restaurateur Pradeep Shinde. Chef Peter Beck is best known for his work at Tamarind and Benares, and has won numerous accolades, including being named to the James Beard Foundation’s “Top Chefs of 2002.”
The menu is a trip around the regions of the Indian countryside. You will find authentic Indian cuisine that would typically be served only in high-end restaurants and expensive hotels in India, such as quail, duck and rack of lamb. Pippali will also serve vegetarian specialities and more common dishes such as neer dosas, dum bhindi and chicken tikka. The dish we can’t wait to taste is their Falooda, pistachio ice cream with rose syrup.
Pippali is open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. everyday. It is open for dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
