The latest dining room by star-chef Jair Téllez (of Merotoro fame), Amaya reflects its proprietor’s belief that quality ingredients speak for themselves, with little need for overdramatic presentations or reliance on technological gimmickry. It translates to scrumptious bistro classics, skewing Mediterranean perhaps, by no means afraid to go rich. Regulars order grilled seafoods, like the grouper, or heartier indulgences like slow-cooked lamb or a mammoth pork chop. The attractive dining room features huge casement windows that take the roar onto the street (especially at lunchtime); inside, gorgeous tile floors and a bold, colorful mural warm the otherwise stark, industrial décor.
