New Delhi Restaurant's 25th Anniversary Party

Where: New Delhi Restaurant, 160 Ellis (at Cyril Magnin), 397-8470

When: Sun., Nov. 18, 6-9 p.m.

Cost: $40 suggested donation (email to RSVP your attendance)

The rundown: A quarter century of business near Union Square has brought dignitaries, spiritual leaders, and culinary legends into New Delhi Restaurant. On this night, chef/owner Ranjan Dey transforms the spacious and elegant eatery into what he calls the "Compassionate Chefs Cafe" for a benefit party that also doubles as a 25th anniversary celebration. It's not scientifically proven that love makes food taste better, but there's something intangibly special about the rendering of Indian classics and new creations that Dey serves up.

This party will have a Bollywood dance feel thanks to live music from Electric Vardo with DJ Amar and dance performances by DholRhythms. All proceeds will be split between the

Tenderloin After School Program here in San Francisco and the Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad, India.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd.
