Poppy

American Small Plates

  • 89
Overview

Poppy showcases chef Jerry Traunfeld’s thali-style cuisine, a category of dining in Indian food that presents each guest with a platter of tasting-size portions, as with rosemary-braised short ribs accompanied by smoked eggplant and lentil soup, celery salad, brussels sprouts, fingerling potatoes, pickles and naan, paired with cocktails and global wines. A garden patio and dining room marked by wood accents and natural lighting impart a casually elegant vibe.
