Orissa; A contemporary Indian bistro opened winter of 2009 in downtown Dobbs Ferry.
Owners Niall Cain and Cynthia Caracta brought their café and dreams to life in the guise of a contemporary and casually sophisticated restaurant along restaurant row of Dobbs Ferry.
Dobbs Ferry, a quaint historic village located on the Hudson River in Westchester County, has been referred to as one of the jewels of Westchester’s river towns in New York. It is approximately 20 miles north of New York City. It has beautiful waterfront with dramatic views of the Hudson and Palisades from many locations.
Niall Cain of NcC Studio Architecture is the architect behind this contemporary and casually sophisticated restaurant and wine bar. The dining room inside is infused with a warm glow emanating from traditional Indian colors — red and yellow. A glowing hourglass shaped light cove is surrounded by textured accent plaster walls, backlit art glass panels and sculptural walls containing selected wines and boutique items from around the world, all resulting in a warm, glowing, and inviting atmosphere. Large folding glass and mahogany doors open to the street when weather permits.
The menu and cuisine is designed by consulting Chef Hari Nayak , author of Modern Indian Cooking . The cuisine at Orissa is modern Indian with a blend of traditional Indian dishes and classic Western dishes flavored by Indian spices and seasonings. A strip steak is rubbed with Indian spices served with cauliflower mash. lamb chops are infused with fennel and served with tomato mustard chutney, and Orissa Paella along with a traditional favorites like chicken tikka masala and fiery vindaloo. The wine list has over 30 wines from around the world, including India.
