Brunch is great at Maya but your two hour max time slot will have you looking for your waitress who takes her time with the bottomless drinks and food. Food is wonderful but it comes out in spirts. With our group of 14 we were...More

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the

Carefully crafted, yet bold flavored. Rooted in tradition, yet adventuring into contemporary tastes. Chef Richard Sandoval blends the earthy yet complex flavors of his native Mexico with worldly ingredients and creative cooking techniques to create the modern Mexican cuisine at Maya. Our hospitality is warm and Latin. We welcome you to linger over drinks, rediscover Mexican classics – fresh guacamole, tacos with fresh-made tortillas and authentic fillings – and savor the Chef’s signature dishes. Maya's Tequila Bar is inspired by neighborhood Tequilerias in Mexico, where lively conversation is shared over bottles and small plates. Sip our collection of spirits slowly as the locals would, or drink them in our hand-muddled cocktails. Salud y buen provecho!
