Diwali, India’s five-day festival of lights celebrating the victory of light over darkness at the end of the monsoon season, crested on Tuesday and officially ended yesterday. If you missed it, first of all, shame on you! Secondly, Culver City’s Keralan restaurant Mayura has you covered, offering Diwali honors tomorrow over lunch, from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Owner Padmini Aniyan tells us lights will be set on every table to represent the occasion, while a $15.99 buffet will include new chicken and vegetarian dishes, and sweets like traditional Keralan vattayappam, unniyappam, payasam, cakes, and laddu. Reservations recommend at 310-559-9644.
