For years, the Cotillion catering hall in Jericho also housed an Indian restaurant, Dhaba, situated off the building's lobby. Now, that space has been remodeled and reborn as an Indian-Chinese-Thai fusion spot, the Cotillion Lounge.
Drawn by the flags flying out front, I pulled into the parking lot and went in to have a look. I found a room both small and chic, done in a cool ice blue. Its menu looked both varied and moderately priced. From the roster of Indian specialties: chicken vindaloo ($12.95), a Malabar fish curry ($16.95) and shrimp biryani ($15.95). Among the dishes labeled “Chinese-Thai fusion: Szechuan shrimp ($15.95), Thai basil ginger chicken ($12.95) and Hakka noodles with vegetables ($8.95).
Added attraction: an attractive outdoor patio.
Cotillion Lounge is at 440 Jericho Tpke., Jericho, 516-938-3300.
