"Naya," the Sanskrit word for "new," befits the new incarnation of the Silver Lake Indian restaurant previously known as Tantra. The Spacecraft-designed restaurant has two striking spaces, very yin and yang: a mood-transporting lounge featuring Gothic-influenced arches, high ceilings, dark wood, and a marble bar; and an airy, white dining room with white leather banquettes, airy, white floor-to-ceiling panels, and crimson touches. The lounge offers bar bites such as Karab Paratha, herbed and spiced tandoor meat wrapped in naan; spiced roasted peanuts called Moom Phali; naan pizzas; and samosas, including one filled with feta, arugula, and walnut; along with new cocktails including the Tamarind Vodka Sour, made with tamarind-infused vodka, fresh lemon juice, agave nectar, egg white, and Angostura bitters; Karma's Nerve, a creation of Karma Tequila, ginger syrup, elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, Angostura orange bitters, and burnt orange peel; and Spa in Goa, a fresh concoction of Aviation Gin, lime juice and thyme, Persian cucumbers, and agave nectar. The dining room's updates on classic Indian dishes include a satisfying butter chicken masala, tandoori monkfish, and lemon-chili scallops on black rice, while the chocomosa, a chocolate-filled samosa, is the star of the dessert menu.
