Leynia, a new Argentinian-fusion restaurant inside the Delano, is now open for Sunday brunch. With a flaming outdoor grill, the restaurant allures diners with various cuts of meat complemented by unlimited selections of sweet and savory plates paired with a curated à la carte menu.
Housed in the former Bianca space, the restaurant transformed its indoor dining room into a gourmet buffet, which overflows onto a garden-front patio with more seating and a large grill area.
For $70 per person, customers can pick from unlimited maki, cured meats, cold salads, freshly baked breads and pastries, fruit parfaits, and a rotating parilla. Two sizable tables are dedicated to sweets, including key lime pies, berry tarts, macarons, and chocolate bites. Outside, a chef mans a grill and whips up roasted chicken, chorizo, and skirt steak.

The prix-fixe meal also includes two selections from the restaurant's à la carte menu. Highlights include French toast drizzled with guava dulce de leche; roasted potatoes infused with truffle; meat, chicken, or corn empanadas; avocado toast; and ceviche made with a catch of the day. Plates are small, but become the perfect size with a few trips to the buffet.
Though a majority of brunch is buffet-style, selections are constantly swapped out for newer versions, ensuring each diner receives fresh food.
For an additional $15, the restaurant offers unlimited mimosas or bloody marys. Select wines and champagnes are available for half-off too.
