Maya's Restaurant and Bar reopens after renovations

Posted By on Fri, Sep 12, 2014 at 10:46 AM

Maya's (2027 Magazine St.)—the Lower Garden District's date night spot for "nuevo Latino" cuisine—reopens today for lunch and dinner after a summer's worth of remodeling.

The Latin fusion spot temporarily closed in June for a major overhaul, primarily to the restaurant's design and decor. The new dining space is painted a sultry red, with bejeweled lamps dripping from the ceiling and a variety of holdover sculptures (lizards, wooden masks) decorating the walls. The space also boasts plentiful additional seating options, and a greatly expanded bar area.

The menu will continue to focus on pan-Latin favorites, including corn crab fingers with red peppers, scallions and a yuca puff, carnitas pibil with thick slivers of queso fresco and sweetened honey plantains flambeed for a dramatic flair.

The building's exterior (which was repainted in shades of yellow, blue and red for a spell this summer) has returned to its more sophisticated roots with a glossy black paint job.
