Meso Maya Misses the Fiesta

Downtown's new Mexican joint plays it safe and dull.

The tacos served at La Ventana are by far the most interesting things the new Meso Maya offers.

Well-seasoned diners, though, and fans of rustic cooking will find the food here safe and ultimately boring. Sanchez's cooking will undoubtedly be successful with the daytime office crowds and the tourists and out-of-town visitors who dominate downtown dining. For a true fan, however, this food lacks the earthy, gritty, messy characteristics that make Mexican cooking so interesting.
