Monday Morning Quarterbacking: Carlyle Club
If you like the Ambassador Dining Room, its sister restaurant, you'll like this place. It's that simple. They offer the same amenities and have the same flaws, or at least what some people will consider flaws.
There are two things I didn't get a chance to mention in my review. ...
This restaurant works particularly well, it seems to me, if you want Indian food and someone else in your party doesn't. The menu not only includes excellent crab cakes, but also a strip steak dinner, complete with mustard mashed potatoes and mushrooms.
Also there's an elaborate combination Indian and American brunch on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $19.95.
