Totally remodeled by Kristofer Keith of Spacecraft genius..(eat at an amazing restaurant in this town and Kris has probably designed it)
I stepped into Naya and I felt like I had been transported to a modern mash up of 1960’s pop culture and yogi mediation. Flowing lace curtains, textured white and off white leather booths and a tiled bar make Naya’s dining room super chic and cozy.. and the brick walled high-ceilinged (pretty sure that’s a word?) lounge is the perfect place to hang with friends and grab a drink. Which are quite delicious might I add..
Oh..and if you think you are going to hear traditional Indian sounds blaring through the place..think again. When the DJ is not spinning the speakers are pumping out pop hits and old school favorites..
Okay now that the logistics are out of the way.. Let talk food!
Apricot Patagonian Seabass w/ Apriocot Curry and Black rice
The exec Chef Ali Mookhi and I sat down and had a wonderful chat about food..and the beauty of it. Naya is not your corner store Indian ..The food is light and seasoned to perfection. Mr. Mookhi manages to keep a modern feel while staying true to the flavors for India..
Thus..Indian Fusion is born.
Between the sea bass, the black rice, the seared tuna, the eggplant and the fillet mignon, I was in absolute heaven. There is something for everyone on this vast menu.. vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters can all dine together in total bliss.
..And don’t get me started on the desserts.. Chocolate Simoosa’s..need I say more?
Dessert: Chilled Pear
Dessert: Chocolate Simoosa’s
The Grand opening of Naya Sunset is this Wednesday November 2nd… Can’t wait!
