Leynia

By: Dana Rozansky

When asked what type of food I'm in the mood for, I often react as if faced with a life or death decision. While one minute I may be craving sushi, just seconds later I'm fantasizing about the last succulent steak I sunk my teeth into. With so many tempting options in this city, how's a girl to choose?

Thanks to Leynia, now I don't have to. Set on the terrace of the iconic Delano hotel, this brand new restaurant features Argentinian cuisine with Japanese influences to please all different palates. With an extensive menu filled with classics and unique items galore, there's something for picky eaters and adventurers alike.

Leynia is the perfect spot to kick back, relax and let the experts do the work. From the in-house mixologist who creates cocktails reminiscent of his childhood in Argentina, to the chefs working their magic on the wood burning grill out back, you can enjoy watching the experience unfold before your eyes.

Below are just a few of my favorite items from the Delano's new hotspot.

Last but not least, don't forget to order one of the pastry chef's decadent creations. It just might arrive at your table on a hand-painted bike imported straight from Argentina. Now this is the real deal.

So next time you've got a hankering for ceviche but your boyfriend is hangry for a hunk of meat, there's no need to compromise. Just head to Leynia for the best of both worlds.
