Hemant Mathur's Tulsi Set to Open in October

In early June, word surfaced that Devi co-chef-and-owner Hemant Mathur would be leaving to open his own place, called Tulsi. At the time, the restaurant -- whose name means "basil" in Hindi -- was shooting for a September opening. As is so often the case, that prediction proved inaccurate, but not by much: According to the restaurant's representative, it's now slated to open in October.

Mathur told us that his menu at Tulsi would be "all my creation, that's going further, using new ingredients a little bit," and promised that he would be using new meats, among other ingredients. Below are some of the dishes he'll be serving when Tulsi opens at 211 East 46th Street:

Bar Snacks -- Tulsi Tandoori Aloo; Shrimp Kati Roll; Crispy Cod Bites Starters -- Street Cart Chaats, served tableside; Walnut Chicken Roti Roll; Trio of Momos Seafood Entrees -- Tandoori Prawns; Parsi Fish of the Day; Semolina Crusted Monkfish Meat Entrees -- Goat Rogan Josh; Duck Moilee; Tandoori Wild Boar Chops; 12-Spice Chicken Curry Vegetable Entrees -- Stuffed Baby Eggplant; Roasted Pesto Portobello Mushroom Sides -- Tulsi's Dal; Butter Paneer; Kulcha; Parantha; Family Naan Desserts -- Ginger Panna Cotta; Eggless Pistachio Cake; Banana Pitha Six-Course Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian Chef's Tasting Menus
