Who We Are
Located on West 74th Street, Leyla brings rustic elegance to the Upper West Side. The minute you step through our doors, you’re enveloped in warmth. Gold touches are mingled throughout the space with Ikat textiles and cookbooks lining our walls. Our dishes are rooted in the Mediterranean tradition, with flavors from every corner of the Middle East like the Black Sea region of Turkey. If you’re looking for a retreat away from the scurry of NYC, stop by and relax within our intimate atmosphere for some exquisite cocktails and authentic dishes.
Tradition and Expertise
At Leyla, we strive to create a dining experience that reflects the Mediterranean culture it was born into. With only the finest ingredients, our chefs create delicious dishes with a melding of flavors. These flavors are inspired by mealtimes in the Mediterranean culture, which represents a time for family and loved ones to come together, a time for togetherness. A meal at Leyla is a meal worth sharing, and we can’t wait for you to experience it with us.
