[quote=“914”][quote=“MayanGrill”]I might humbly suggest the Mayan Grill.
We have great salads like the Garden and Ancho Chicken with mixed leaf lettuces (romaine, green leaf, red leaf, frisee etc), our Caesar is tough to beat too, but that’s it, not a huge salad selection, but they’re very nourishing and tasty.
We’re upscale casual so the atmosphere is great and service is generally very attentive, ask for Ray or Cash (Ray’s English is a bit better, but they’re both very friendly and attentive) and prices are very fair for the high quality fare we serve (average entree is about 300, gourmet items 500-1250 for the 12oz Organic USDA Black Angus Ribeye).
Its a 10 min cab ride from Tianmu (same from Eastern District), so I think the location matches. You can hail a cab right in front of our place or our staff will call a cab for you.
I think the one area we may miss your mark is that its Mexican food rather than traditional California/New American, but its not Tex-Mex so its lighter, fresher and more what we’re used to in California, including our Haas avocados imported from Cali that we use to make awesome Guacamole (limited availability due to the fact that avocados are ripe for only one day then are unusable except as a skin treatment ). Hey, does the guacamole count as a salad?

I like this answer. Pride in your food and a little self promo never hurt anyone.
It has been suggested to me by more than two people as a matter of fact. Trust me, i will make it there very soon to try it out before we bring the in laws this summer. Do u offer corn tortillas for gluten-free diners? My mil lurves Mexican food and she feels more comfy dining in a clean, polished eatery, but she has celiac. Can your staff accomodate? And then theres my s/o, who is dairy-free, can you accomodate? I love a casual diner, but like to step it up once in a while.
Looking forward to trying your place out before we bring our posse. Ive seen pictures, and the food looks fab.[/quote]
Glad to hear the good word is getting around!
Yes to both questions, we can accommodate gluten-free no problem (actually a lot of Mexican is gluten free), and we can do non-dairy as well. But its so sad to take the cheese and crema out of Mexican food! j/k we’re always happy to accommodate special requests whenever we can.
