We went to Richard Sandoval’s Asian-Latin fusion restaurant Zengo last month (which I mistakenly labeled as Mexican), and this month we are going to an actual Mexican restaurant. Don’t let the genre of the cuisine lead you astray, however — this is Richard Sandoval first iconic restaurant, and it does not disappoint. Michelin Guide recommended, they write: “Upscale Mexican dining thrives at Chef Richard Sandoval’s muy popular Maya.” Sandoval blends the earthy flavors of his native Mexico with worldly ingredients and creative cooking techniques to create the modern Mexican cuisine at Maya. Carefully crafted, yet bold flavored. Rooted in tradition, yet adventuring into contemporary tastes with an internationally acclaimed blend of authentic Mexican ingredients and innovative culinary techniques. Rated 4.5 stars on OpenTable – out of almost 2,000 reviews.
