Baluchi’s Back In Biz Post-Health Code Violations

Baluchi’s Indian restaurant got off to a false start with its 10th NYC location in Brooklyn Heights at 46 Henry Street, when it opened at the end of January. By February 10, the joint was shuttered by the NYC Department of Health when it was whacked with 58 violation points.

A tip provided today to BHB by reader Heightsguy confirms that the restaurant, between Cranberry and Middagh streets, has made good with DOH and is now again open for business. Yelp reviews for the locale are mixed, but you can decide for yourself with a look at their delivery menu here.

    Had dinner there the other night. Delicious.

    Had some delivery from Baluchi’s on Monday. Very nice, same quality as most of its other locations. Shame that they didn’t have any lime pickle or poppadums on the delivery menu, and a bit pricey in comparison to the other Height’s curry offerings, but delicious.

    I ate there two nights ago and was very very happy. It was delicious, and the waiters were lovely.

    Why is the Henry St. location more expensive than any of their other locations throughout the city?

  • AEB

    For the same reason, Andrew, that Gristedes can charge–and apparently get–$6.00 for a pint of Haagen Dazs sorbet while one can get it elsewhere for as little as $4.79: because it can, given the state of the community’s exchequer.

  • Heightsguy

    Seems logical, AEB, but then how to explain Key Food routinely charging much less than Grrrstedes? (oops off topic, will post tandoori tips in penance: always score or poke holes in the chicken, marinate in lemon juice and tandoori spices for hours, cook over charcoal) Cheaper than Baluchi’s.

  • AEB

    Yes, Heightsguy, but the point is not every merchant wishes to exploit the community’s avoir du dough. Or exploit it as cynically and egregiously is Gristede’s does.

    Baluchi’s evidently saw gold in them thar fruit streets and environs.

    The BH audience is also more or less a captive one: people aren’t about to walk lots of blocks for better prices.
