Baba Ji, the proprietor of Silverlake Juice and Tea, explores a new frontier in fusion with the food at Cowboys and Turbans?the tantalizing blend of South Asian, American, and Mexican cuisine. The menu unites antipodal parts of the globe with hearty samosas wrapped in flour tortillas instead of samosa dough, tacos filled with tandoori meats and chutneys, and pizzas made with a chewy tandoori naan crust. Towering doors of wood and iron lined with intricately carved columns reveal an open-air patio, which surrounds visitors with flickering torchlight and a canopy of multicolored cloth. Statues of animals and deities ring the courtyard, patiently waiting to ask if diners are going to finish their masala burgers, tandoori cornish hens, and aromatic vegetarian and seafood curries.

With organic vegan food and an outdoor patio bursting with greenery, Sprouted Garden Cafe helps its patrons feel connected to the earth. Diners twirl kelp noodles smeared with cilantro pesto, tear into portobello mushroom burgers topped with beet roots and greens, and sip pots of chai brewed with nut milk surrounded by trees and a canopy of twinkling garden lights. Nearby, a giant chocolate-colored Buddha head in a calm pool of water gazes at chefs slinging vegan pizzas into an outdoor oven. During cooler months, patrons can grab a seat under one of the outdoor heaters or bury their fingers into a neighboring diner's hair.

Chef Imram Ali Moohki chose the name Naya, meaning "new" in Hindi, as a demonstration of his restaurant's commitment to using Californian flavors to modernize Indian cuisine. Avocado, tortilla chips, and garlic mashed potatoes appear along with familiar southern Asian staples, including tandoori chicken and coconut-based curries. Although the accompanying wine list emphasizes California producers, the cocktail selection embraces the same cultural mélange as the food, garnishing drinks with ginger and basil as well as agave nectar and jalapeño.

The restaurant's airy dining room lines its walls with flowing lace curtains, allowing cherry-red candles, napkins, and carpeting to lend a vibrant splash of color. Nearby, the wood-toned, Moroccan-style lounge braces its vaulted ceilings with a network of gothic arches and helium-filled chandeliers.
