According to a feature by Vogue, the menu for Sona features a delectable fusion of Indian street food and authentic dishes with unexpected combinations.

These include the familiar ones found in India such as Dahi Kachori, Kofta Korma, and Golgappa Shots. However, what stands out is the Crab Puri and Caviar which is reportedly Priyanka's favourite.

It has "buttery garlic Bombay style crab topped with the creaminess of caviar."

Besides that, Nayak's concoction that comes with a visual appeal is the Buckwheat Bhel that has a honeycomb of papdi lace.

Earlier this month, Priyanka took to Instagram and shared pictures from the prayer ceremony (pooja) held in 2019, to mark the beginning of the construction, where her popstar husband Nick Jonas was also present.

"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," the 38-year-old actor, who is shooting for the Amazon series "Citadel" in the UK, wrote.

"Sona is opening later this month, and I can’t wait to see you there! This endeavour would not have been possible without the leadership of my friends Maneesh Goyal and David Rabin. Thank you to our designer Melissa Bowers and the rest of the team for realizing this vision so clearly," she said.

Goyal credited Chopra Jonas for being the "creative force" behind the restaurant.

In an Instagram post, the restaurateur said opening a restaurant is a team effort and it wouldn’t have happened without the support of the actor.

"My kind friend @priyankachopra, who has been the creative force behind Sona. There is no one who better-and more boldly-personifies ''global Indian'' than Priyanka. Sona is so lucky to have her in our corner.

"From the design, to the menu, to the music, to even the name, Priyanka has her fingerprints all over Sona. Love you dear Pri! Our baby is finally ready for the world to see!" he wrote.

Chopra Jonas was recently seen in the Netflix film "The White Tiger" and also released her much-awaited memoir "Unfinished".
