Naya is the dream of owner Dr. Michael Everest and Chef Imram Ali Moohki. Both wanted to create an establishment that would be at once inviting, inspiring and exotic. They also wanted to create and serve a new, updated version of the Indian cooking they knew by heart. Thus Naya, meaning “new” in Hindi, became the name. With the help of an elaborate design from Spacecraft, Naya Sunset & Naya Lounge opened in November 2011. Restaurant Naya Sunset is an ethereal, romantic haven, with white lace billowing from the ceiling, white leather banquettes and blood red accents. Exotic, intoxicating and sensual, Naya invites you to indulge in Chef Imram’s personal take on Indian cuisine: modern, California-influenced, Indian-inspired. Lounge Dark, moody, gothic and Moroccan with a grand marble bar and comfortable seating, Naya Lounge serves exotic takes on classic cocktails and Indian-inspired small plates.
