Opening Alert: Leon Mexican Cuisine, Ridgewood, NJ


Leon Mexican Cuisine, a restaurant serving “authentic Mexican with contemporary flair”, has opened in Ridgewood. Owners Srini & Himani Rao along with Mr. Jeevan Pullan have partnered together, bringing a restaurant where the chef and kitchen crew are all originally from Mexico and have worked at fine dine restaurants in New York and New Jersey.

The team decided to open a Mexican restaurant, because they felt downtown of Ridgewood did not have a Mexican restaurant who offers healthy and tasty fresh Mexican food. The menu (View Menu) includes no pre-cooking of ingredients when crafting the Mexican classics like burritos, tacos — along with others that are more contemporary like charred cauliflower, lemon chipotle chicken and pescado Yucatan (pan seared mahi mahi).

Plans are in place to have a mariachi singer for weekends. The 120 seat restaurant is open for lunch and dinner from noon till 10:30pm everyday.
