If Luna Rosa is the hot new casual restaurant, Veya is the "it" spot for a special night out (witness A-listers like Robert De Niro, Liam Neeson, and Natasha Richardson). Perched on a hill overlooking Sandy Ground and Road Bay, this pretty West Indian house has been packed since Pennsylvanian restaurateurs Carrie and Jerry Bogar opened shop in January 2007. Veya means a ray of sunlight in the Carib language, and the menu adopts flavors from the world's warmer climes, from India and Vietnam to North Africa and the Caribbean. That idea translates well in dishes like the carpaccio of conch with Asian cucumber-chayote slaw, Moroccan spiced shrimp cigars with an apricot sauce, and the grilled jerk tuna in a rum-coffee glaze. Service is excellent, and you'll not go wrong with Jerry's recommendations from the thoughtful wine list. Veya's cozy bar/lounge with its wood-beamed ceiling and soft lighting is popular for pre- and post-prandial drinks, while its wraparound dining veranda provides a romantic venue to the tune of cicadas and, on Tuesday evenings, the soft jazz of Asher & Shyrone. Reservations are always advised, and be sure to book weeks in advance over the holidays.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 6 to 10 pm, September through July.
