The phone has been disconnected. The thick drapes are shut tight against the windows. What’s going on at Naya Sunset, the flashy Silver Lake restaurant that served a modern version of Indian cuisine and some out-of-the-ordinary cocktails, including a rum drink with coffee beans? Some nearby store owners and employees said the Sunset Boulevard restaurant has closed and some Yelpers have reported finding the restaurant shut down for a while.
The owners of Naya Sunset, which opened in November 2011, had operated a previous Indian restaurant, Tantra, at the same location.
A state license to sell alcohol on the property expired at the end of April and was suspended, according to the Alcohol Beverage and Control Agency.
Could the owners be cooking up a new concept for the property or is someone else going to give it a try?
