Priyanka Chopa partnering with Lambs Club’s David Rabin for new Indian eatery
Priyanka Chopra is inspiring a downtown hot spot, Page Six has learned.
Sources told us the star’s partnering with the Lambs Club guru David Rabin and her longtime friend Maneesh Goyal on a new Indian eatery.
A source close to Chopra told us: “It’s not her restaurant, but she will be advising the people opening the restaurant. She’s obviously a lover of Indian food and Indian culture. It’s who she is, so she will be around a lot.”
Another source familiar with the project described it as “the Indochine of Indian food” — referencing the storied Lafayette Street haunt for famous people that turns 36 this year.
“Priyanka will make sure it’s going to be as dope as possible,” the pal said. “She’s a major adviser and friend, and it will be her spot whenever she’s in New York. She’s offering advice on what to keep on the menu and things like that.”
The Flatiron District spot is slated for an early summer opening, with chef Hari Nayak tapped to create the cuisine.
Before being cast on ABC’s 2015 drama “Quantico,” Chopra was a Miss World winner for India and had a successful career as a major Bollywood film actress. She married pop star Nick Jonas in December 2018.
