THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Neyla Restaurant Review

: Diners enter Neyla and are suddenly transported, via a Middle Eastern magic blanket, into a world of lavish décor, with richly colored fabrics draped from the ceiling and a multitude of exotic mirrors and candles. The menu is largely Lebanese, with a smattering of influences from the Mediterranean region. The Lebanese Tasting is a feast for two to share: hummus, fattoush, cheese rolls, stuffed grape leaves, meat kibbeh, chicken shwarma, baba ghanouj and warak enab. The fresh pita is tender, hot and addictive. Here one can veer from tradition and order a mixed grill, branzino and vegetable kebabs. The kebabs are seared over a hot charcoal grill, and the marinated beef or shrimp kebabs are satisfying. The winning house specialty is the seasoned and charcoal-grilled Neyla lamb chops. While one may finish with the chocolate fondant and the vanilla ice cream, a more palate-freshening ending is the mango sorbet. Check out the exotic cocktails.
