Armed with fresh fish and meats that are delivered daily, the chefs at Maya Tapas & Grill craft a menu of New and Old World flavors, including Argentinean steaks and Spanish tapas. Dinner bells herald the arrival of a 10-ounce sirloin steak ($15.95), which wafts flame-kissed aromas while sporting its temporary grill-mark tattoos. After partially deboning the roasted moroccan half-chicken ($17.95) and arranging it in an aesthetically appealing yoga pose, the chefs send it out of the kitchen with sides of couscous and green beans. The lunch menu tames growling stomachs with the citrus-glazed flavors of its ceviche of the day ($8.95), and the grouper sandwich encases a grilled or fried slab of fish between slices of vine-ripened bread ($10.95). In between bites, diners can toast the invention of glassware with a choice libation from the drink menu, including pours of house-made sangria ($6.95/glass).
530 Ocean's Grill
It's not uncommon to spot the head chef at 530 Ocean's Grill, cheerfully greeting customers as he strolls beneath the crimson umbrellas and leafy palms of the outdoor terrace. After waving goodbye to the party clinking glasses of wine on the upper patio, the chef heads back into his kitchen to craft the Argentina-inspired specialties lauded by reporters from Qué Rica Vida. Argentinean recipes, along with Italian and American influences, inspire a variety of tapas, steaks, and pasta dishes. The chef showers pizzas in housemade tomato sauce and Argentinean chorizo before returning his attention to the juicy Angus steaks sizzling on the grills. For dessert, guests fork bites of decadent regional treats, such as sweet flan with a cloud of whipped cream and dulce de leche cheesecake decorated in a sprinkle of Argentinean pesos.
