Leila's a bright, 24-seat, Middle Eastern corner cafe decked out with a mirrored fresco and wall-hung musical instruments, and operated by a Lebanese native who spent 33 years consulting across the US on 35 different restaurant openings, along the way somehow earning the nickname "Smiley" from a young River Phoenix (seriously, he never stops smiling).
