For a pre-theater dinner or an affordable lunch buffet, Bostonians head to Mantra, a French-Indian fusion restaurant located between the theater district and Downtown Crossing. Set in a circa-1800 bank, the dining room combines original vaulted ceilings, marble floors, and a teller’s-cage-turned-bar with contemporary additions such as laser-cut steel mirrors, golden draperies, and sleek dark furniture. While the setting is impressive, the main draw is the creative cuisine from chef Jerry Pabla. Among the favorites are the goat cheese and potato tikki (croquette) and the stuffed naan trio featuring unusual flavors like coconut date, green chili mozzarella, and honey ginger.

Insider Tip:

Patrons who prefer a high level of heat in their dishes should feel free to request extra spice; the chefs are happy to take it up a notch.
