Welcome into Maia, the Sunset Strip’s newest take on Latin and Asian flavors, with a bit of California flair thrown in for good measure. Housed in the longtime Mirabelle space (which more recently was Yellowtail), Maia plans to bring approachability to that often glitzy stretch of Sunset Boulevard, thanks in part to a gigantic covered patio and 14 foot olive tree out back.
The split-level space is the work of the LORE Group (Rock & Reilly’s, Pearl’s), who have brought on JT Torregiani to help oversee the opening. Inside, it’s all rustic charms and a menu full of rethought classics, from smoked chicken to braised short ribs. There’s a separate section just for sangrias, too, plus cocktails and wines by both the bottle and the glass.
Maia is now open on the Sunset Strip, with daily evening hours from 5 p.m. to midnight. See below for menus.
