WELCOME TO LEILA
Sunday lunches are sacred in Lebanon. That’s why nearly every week since my parents moved stateside in XXXX, family and friends have gathered at our house to feast on a traditional Lebanese spread, shared over stories and full-bellied laughs so loud they echo down the block.
The genius behind each mythical meal is and always has been my mother, Leila. That’s her on the left, in her element, dressed to the nines while masterfully frying falafel.
Leila is an homage to her and to the heritage and traditions she holds so close to her heart. With a menu rooted in the savory yet simple flavors that define Lebanese cuisine, and an experience that evokes the simple pleasure of great food enjoyed in good company, Leila sits at the crossroads of sophisticated style and old-world hospitality my mom embodies.
So, whether you’re stopping in for a quick lunch or making a night of it, we promise that each bite and every moment with us will be as memorable as a Sunday meal with Leila herself.
