Junoon has reopened in a new Flatiron location just a few steps from where it debuted over a decade earlier. A pioneering restaurant whose authentic, elegantly modern style helped redefine Indian cuisine within the New York dining scene, Junoon retains the same elevated, innovative spirit that earned it a Michelin star every year since it opened in 2010, in a relaxed, more intimate space that complements the menu.

Alligator Pear
