Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas introduced her fans to the Indian restaurant she is opening in New York City.
The White Tiger star used social media to share a picture of Sona, an Indian restaurant, and talk about how it came about.
Chopra-Jonas also posted pictures from the prayer ceremony (pooja) in 2019 to mark the start of construction, which was also attended by her pop star husband Nick.
“I’m very excited to introduce you to Sona, a new restaurant in New York City that I’ve put my love of Indian food into. Sona is the embodiment of timeless India and the flavors I grew up with, ”she wrote.
Jonas said that the kitchen is headed by Chef Hari Nayak and she also thanked her partners, restaurateurs Maneesh Goyal and David Rabin.
“Sona opens later this month (March) and I can’t wait to see you there! This venture would not have been possible without the guidance of my friends Maneesh Goyal and David Rabin. Many thanks to our designer Melissa Bowers and the rest of the team for making this vision a reality, ”she added.
Goyal described Chopra-Jonas as the “creative force” behind the restaurant. In an Instagram post, the restaurateur said that opening a restaurant was a team effort and would not have been possible without the support of the actress.
“My kind friend @priyankachopra who was the creative force behind Sona. There is no one who embodies “global Indian” better – and more courageously – than Priyanka. Sona is so happy to have her in our corner. From the design to the menu, the music to the name, Priyanka has her fingerprints everywhere in Sona. I love you, dear Pri! Our baby is finally ready for the world, ”he wrote.
Chopra-Jonas was recently featured in the Netflix movie The White Tiger and is now filming the Citadel series in London.
