From chef Floyd Cardoz (formerly of Tabla and North End Grill), Paowalla is an Indian restaurant that's all about bread: specifically, the traditional Goan bread Cardoz grew up with. Everything from rosemary naan to the cheddar cheese-stuffed kulcha can be paired with a wide variety of chutneys. The Soho restaurant also places a large emphasis on local produce and seafood, but the absolute must-try item is the "French fries" with coconut, garlic, and chilies.
