Jazba is a vibrant new restaurant from the team behind Junoon, the trailblazing Indian restaurant in Flatiron New York.

Jazba is tribute and celebration of India's spirited roadside eateries, bringing India’s beloved hawker culture to the heart of East Village.

Integral to India’s culinary identity, hawkers are diverse vendors of rich historical, cultural, and religious significance, that typically serve a single specialty dish from streetside carts until sold out for the day. Jazba presents the soul & diversity of these roadside eateries & hawkers’ strong connection to the roots that run deep across the country.

Jazba, bringing their forgotten stories and lost flavors to the heart of the East Village

Food Tales

Hawker cuisine is the soul of Indian culinary landscape. It is influenced by location, culture, religion, and availability. It is an identity marker of caste, class, family, affiliation, and ethnicity.

The hawkers in India present a way to understand everyday Indian food culture. They serve soulful food which breaks the barrier of social and financial standing. These dishes are no fuss, quick serve, and very flavorful.

Our menu reflects the “forgotten flavors" of India and it’s not just about food, but a menu that strokes a heady mix of emotions, nostalgia, and childhood memories.

Mixology Saga

The cocktail program has been curated and executed by award-winning mixologist Hemant Pathak, who primarily draws inspiration from India's spices. 

At Jazba, Hemant serves up inventive takes on classic cocktails, driven by India's bold and diverse flavors. The cocktail program offers familiar flavor profiles infused with unexpected sweet, smoky and savory elements from distinct Indian ingredients, such as Chikmagalur coffee, Banarasi Paan, Peepli Pepper from Meghalaya and more.
