Situated in Mercado González, this masa-focused restaurant offers plates inspired by Mexico City in an elegant, contemporary design.
Jorge Salim Vilches, most known for leading a revival of Mexican fine dining in the greater Los Angeles area has extended his culinary passion to Costa Mesa.
All set in a minimalist dining room featuring earthen tones accentuated by Mexican curios and Indigenous cookware, Maizano's menu includes a maiz selection with memelas topped with refried beans and cheese, chalupas, and sweet molotes. Highlights from the platos fuertes include many of Mexico's classic favorites like mole negro, huachinango mextlapique, and pescada a la talla.
For dessert, enjoy espresso-flavored carajillo tres leches, a milk cake with Licor 43 - a take on the popular after-dinner drink at Mexican restaurants.
