The other day we mentioned that Eighty Four on Seventh had closed after just a year, and now it's time for a look at Leyla, which opens in the space on Monday. Chefs of Jared Braithwaite and Monique Fiso cooked most recently at Public, and their new American menu roves from bone marrow for two to house-made lemon gnocchi with pickled Chanterelles to a burger or baby back ribs. See the revamped space in our slideshow and check out the full lineup straight ahead.
