Priyanka Chopra Jonas Opens New Indian Restaurant SONA NYC

Actress, singer, and film producer Priyanka Chopra Jonas can now add restauranteur to her long list of accomplishments.

As of March 26, a new Indian restaurant SONA NYC opened in Flatiron under the creative consultancy of Priyanka Chopra Jonas. Though the pandemic has unfortunately led to the closure of many New York City establishments, new restaurants are continuing to take their shot at success in this unpredictable climate.

However, New York City restaurants are still under tight restrictions as SONA NYC is only operating at 50% capacity and closing at 11pm as the law requires.

The star posted about the restaurant’s opening saying “I’m thrilled to present to you SONA, a new restaurant in NYC that I poured my love for Indian food into. SONA is the very embodiment of timeless India and the flavours I grew up with.”


With Chopra Jonas’ role as Creative Advisor, the star is working with friend and businessman Maneesh K. Goyal, and David Rabin, a partner in the Lambs Club, to keep SONA NYC operating at full speed.

According to the Times, SONA NYC was designed to “evoke the Art Deco period that flourished in Mumbai in the 1930s.” Neutrals and golds decorate the interior as class meets ornate pendants that float from the ceiling.
