THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mantra Restaurant Review

: Get in touch with your yin and yang at Mantra, a restaurant-lounge with plenty of soul. Dripping in feng shui style, the two-level space includes a fireplace, stylish bar area and Asian design elements provided by chef-owner Al Paris. Sip a guru-tini---Stoli muddled with cucumber, lemon and lime---and sample the Mind-Body menu, which includes globetrotting bites like hoisin barbecue chicken roll, Mongolian firepot and Persian nut-rubbed drumettes. The kitchen stays open ’til 1 a.m., with a DJ providing a late-night soundtrack of acid jazz and heavy lounge music.
