We especially enjoyed the raita (Gokul's version is studded with crisp vegetables, including carrot chunks) and the rich aloo matar, a dish of potatoes and peas floating in a creamy tomato sauce. There had to be a week's worth of saturated fat in that dish, but dear God, we aren't complaining!
The owners assure us that when they begin to serve the full menu next week, it will be the exact menu as they serve up on Page. The only difference is that they'll be getting a kosher certification to serve the neighborhood's large population of Orthodox Jews.
We're also pleased to report that Gokul shows the same attention to its new space as it does to the raita. The walls are washed in a sunny yellow, with bright orange cloth napkins on the table and charming little Aesop-inspired illustrations on the glass atop the buffet.
It's hard not to feel cheerful in a room this happy. Then again, trust us -- it's hard not to feel cheerful when you've just eaten your weight in aloo matar.
