In 2011, the Richard Sandoval restaurant group opened Cima, a Contemporary Latin Kitchen, in the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain. Last September, Cima announced that Joel Harrington joined the restaurant as executive chef and a new bold was launched along with this chef appointment. But Cima did not last much longer.
At the end of the ski season, the doors were closed and right now the space is in the process of being transformed into Maya, a Modern Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar. The new restaurant concept will be unveiled by early June.
Maya's menu aims to be more approachable focusing on authentic Mexican flavors combined with contemporary techniques to create dishes and cocktails that are familiar and also affordable. Guests should expect an extensive menu of guacamoles, with selections like tuna tartare and chicharrones with heirloom tomatoes. Signature dishes will include lobster and shrimp Yucatan, traditional Mexican chicken and pork braises and carne asada.
The renovated space will also feature a handmade Tortilla Station and a bar and lounge offering more than 100 agave-based spirits and house-infused tequilas.
