Teqa fills a void in Murray Hill’s restaurant and nightlife scene by melding a modern menu and design sensibilities with a traditional spirit. An unparalleled liquor selection meets an exquisitely crafted menu by acclaimed chef Lisa Schoen. Interior designer Lesly Zamor (Seed NY) has deftly mixed a fluid floor plan with striking décor. That design was given life through the brilliant construction work of Strictly Structural, who ensured every last handcrafted detail was inspired by the cultures that shaped the 500-year-long history of tequila.
