Knights of the Raj NYC

  • Museum of Food and Drink 62 Bayard Street Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

Knights of the Raj NYC is an immersive arts experience that beautifully captures the struggles and the stories behind the people who make up the largest Bangladeshi community in the United States, the people who brought curry to New York City restaurants. This timely window into a hidden world invites visitors to experience South Asian flavors while absorbing the deeply personal narratives that led Bengali migrants to New York. Step into another world as we explore how a group of often overlooked NYC restaurant pioneers journeyed from their homeland in Bangladesh to the UK's Brick Lane full of "curry houses" and New York's own Curry Hill to the Bangladeshi biryani carts and street food vendors seen today throughout Jackson Heights.

Tickets include a three-course tasting menu of Bangladeshi food at the MOFAD culinary studio. Opening weekend menu includes Aloo Chaat (meat and vegetarian option available), Prawn and Pumpkin Curry, and Mishti Doi. Halal options are available, and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.
