Because it's there

Serving the finest dal makhani this side of the sub-continent, Everest Restaurant is well worth the 70-plus minutes of combined bus and subway time to get there. Once comfortably ensconced in our booth, sipping our mango lassis and cups of chai, we marvel at the linguistic playfulness of the proprietor almost as much as the food. He switches effortlessly between his lightly-accented but perfect English with us, to fluent Korean with the local patrons, to his mother-tongue Nepali with his family and staff.
