Maya's stable of chefs fuse Argentinean and Spanish culinary traditions in a whirling sensory circus of mouthwatering aromas and beautifully arrayed dishes. Frolic through a dinner menu laden with tapas such as the Carpaccio, whose delicate slices of beef are bedecked with manchego cheese, arugula, and truffle oil, for a treat as singular and beautiful as the tears of a matador ($10.95). The Asado, 16 ounces of braised and grilled short ribs crowned with fried onions ($24.95), leads a triumphant contingent of steaks in a belly-filling campaign reinforced by a full battery of wines and cocktails. Tear into the lunch menu's lighter offerings, such as the ceviche of the day, often laced with citric notes that enhance marine character like a high five from Jacques Cousteau ($8.95). Maya's culinarians sculpt subtle masterpieces using meats and seafood delivered daily, all of which may be enjoyed in a warm, multi-hued dining room or the Ocean Drive location's outdoor patio.
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.
