This August, Meso Maya will open its doors at Preston and Forest.

This authentic Mexican restaurant serves cuisine from a variety of regions, including a traditional Mayan dish of achiote-marinated pork shoulder with black beans from Southern Mexico. Executive chef Nico Sanchez — with a résumé that includes Cuba Libre and The Porch — has prepared a menu full of handmade corn tortillas, creamy cacao and a specialty mole negro. “There’s a lot of Tex-Mex out there, and people are ready for the next step … real Mexican food with adobo sauces and dried chiles,” says Sanchez. Expect most meals to stay under $20 and an atmosphere that is stylish, but relaxed.
