“Pranna, which means 'breath of life' in Sanskrit, certainly brings life to the Flatiron district. This restaurant/lounge exudes elegance and class. Come for a tasty Pan Asian dinner and stay to party the night away. It is a great place for happy hour with colleagues, a business dinner, a date night, or a girl’s night out. Pranna is the perfect place for any occasion.” says:

“It's very chic and modern inside and the perfect spot for people watching as it is crawling with the trendy crowd, girls lugging their Céline and Chloe bags and guys in their laceless wingtips and gingham button downs.“

According to

"When you walk into the two-level, 15,000-square-foot space, it’s clear that looks are a substantial part of the equation. Handsome dark wood tables, white walls with geometric cut-outs revealing gold flourishes and white banquettes give Parana a very contemporary vibe."


"With its lovely design, this spacious Murray Hill Southeast Asian offers a modern backdrop for its tasty plates; there's also a lively bar that takes on a club vibe as the night wears on, so never mind if it's expensive for what some term style over substance." says :

"Pranna injects a dose of youthful energy (think Tao) into Madison Square Park."

Time Out New York says:

"Step into Pranna for the first time and you may wonder whether you’re in a clubby cocktail lounge or a Southeast Asian restaurant. It’s hard to tell."

Eating – If you are looking for a quick bite, Pranna offers a large number of vegetarian and vegan friendly options. The cooking style is Asian Fusion with inspiration from Southeast regions: Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia and India. ***This is a _drinking_ event (not specifically an eating event), so eating is _optional_ (your choice to grab a bite or not).***
