In, of all places, Dadeland, chef Niven Patel and his crew have opened Miami’s eyes to the cuisine of western India, a palette that consists of infinitely more than tandoori chicken and lamb rogan josh. Here you’ll find the simple street snack of puffed rice called bhel, juiced up with sweet Florida avocado and meaty hunks of raw tuna. Though the restaurant offers chicken tikka masala for the unadventurous, do not miss the sizable vegetable section on the menu, many of the ingredients for which are culled from Patel’s own backyard garden. Instead of an à la carte lunch menu, Ghee serves a meal of daily offerings that change according to the harvest from the chef’s farm, Rancho Patel ($18). New Normal: The restaurant has expanded its outdoor dining area and established an outdoor waiting area staffed by a greeter who assists guests.
