Priyanka Chopra launches Indian restaurant in New York

Actress/producer Priyanka Chopra has announced the opening of her restaurant, called Sona, in New York, which will serve Indian cuisine. 

Priyanka posted pictures of the restaurant as well as of a prayer ceremony that was performed by her and her husband, singer Nick Jonas and her mother, Madhu Chopra in 2019 before the work on the restaurant started. 

"I'm thrilled to present to you SONA, a new restaurant in NYC that I poured my love for Indian food into. SONA is the very embodiment of timeless India and the flavours I grew up with. The kitchen is helmed by the incredible Chef Hari Nayak, a masterful talent, who has created the most delicious and innovative menu, taking you on a food journey through my amazing country," Priyanka posted. 

"SONA is opening later this month, and I can't wait to see you there! This endeavour would not have been possible without the leadership of my friends Maneesh Goyal and David Rabin. Thank you to our designer Melissa Bowers and the rest of the team for realizing this vision so clearly. The second and third photos were taken in September 2019 when we performed a small intimate Puja (prayer ceremony) to bless the space that would soon become Sona. Godspeed!" she added.

Sona is set to open later this month and will be headed by chef Hari Nayak. Priyanka also recently launched her own haircare line called Anomaly.
