What started as a closely guarded secret amongst the local wine and food set has blossomed into one of Los Angeles premier eateries. And it is a secret no more. Leila's restaurant is located in the Oak Park area in the quiet Conejo Valley suburbs near Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village.
To those who pass by, Leila's unassuming exterior might lead you to believe its just another local spot, but this restaurant is something truly special. A casual, contemporary setting combined with bold fusion cuisine has created a Mecca for those looking for fine dining and fine wines without the pomp and circumstance. The long term staffers are friendly and knowledgeable, ready to explain the finer nuances of chef Richie DeMane's American dishes that infuse elements of Asian and other worldly influences to create flavorful, creative dishes that are as pleasing to the eye as they are to the palate. The duck confit pancake with Asian slaw is a signature appetizer. Donít be surprised, though, at how often the menu changes throughout the season. And if you are used to a server reading off a list of specials so long that upon the finale you've forgotten the first nine, relax. Every dish on the Leila's menu is truly special indeed. And if the occasional one-off creation is offered, hop on it. Its likely to be one of Richie's incredible concoctions that you may never see again. If wine is your thing, the staff can match your dish with the perfect complement, or you can peruse the stunning wine list That is constantly updated with unique, hard-to-find wines at very reasonable prices by all restaurant standards.
