Authentic Mayan Cuisine

The Mayan culture, one known for rich cooking traditions, lives on through our chef, Bruce Ucán, a Mayan Indian from Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. Here, at the Mayan Café, Chef Ucán fuses traditional Mayan flavors, ingredients & cooking techniques with local, sustainably-farmed ingredients.

Farm-to-table Dining

The concept of sustainability is at the core of what we do and how we do it. We source our meat exclusively from local farms and use as much sustainably-farmed local produce & cheese as is seasonally available. We believe in what our farmers are doing and also believe that incorporating those products into our dishes makes better food. Farm-to-table dining is how Chef Bruce grew up eating, and it’s at the foundation of his understanding of food.

We love most Latin American food, but this place is beyond anything else. It tastes so wonderful and the flavors seem undiluted and authentic, more so than most of the Mexican places we go to.
