What is it? Leela is a new modern Indian restaurant, a collaboration between chef Manav Tuli (formerly of Michelin-starred Chaat) and Jia Group.
Why we love it: It's great to see renowned chef Manav in his element, showcasing his love for Indian cuisine. His new venture highlights dishes from ancient India, specifically from the Mauryan Empire (323–185 BC), the largest Indian empire stretching from present-day Myanmar to Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. At Leela, enjoy hearty Indian dishes with a touch of history.
Time Out tip: This holiday season, book your Christmas gathering in the private room that can accommodate 10 people. Enjoy a hearty tasting menu ($1,288) featuring 10 of their signature dishes.
