She also appreciated and acknowledged the effort by saying that it wouldn’t be possible without the leadership of her friends Maneesh Goyal and David Rabin. She thanked them and the designer Melissa Bowers and also to the rest of her team players to realize her vision for this clearly.
While sharing the photo, Priyanka also added a picture wherein a glimpse of herself can be seen while performing puja with her husband Nick Jonas. She, on her gram picture caption, clarified that the second and third photos were taken in September 2019 when a small intimate puja was done to bless the space that would soon become @sonanewyork Godspeed!
In the pictures shared by Priyanka in her post the first picture shows the restaurant’s nameplate, the other two are from 2019, when Priyanka along with restaurant partner Maneesh Goyal and Nick Jonas performed puja at the restaurant site.
The other partner Maneesh also took it to his Instagram to share the news. He wrote “Opening a restaurant is a team effort. I am going to spend the next few posts proudly to the people who brought Sona to life.”
First, my kind friend @priyankachopra, who has been the creative force behind SONA. There is no one who does better and more courage as well as the “global Indian” than Pri. SONA is so lucky to have her in her corner.
From design to menus, to music, even to the name, Priyanka has all the fingerprints of Sonae.
Love you dear pre! Our child is finally ready to see the world! We are gonna have a lot of fun soon see you all at 20th St.! @sonanewyork.”
