Staff Picks: Mexican food and entertainment

Casa Maya Grill in Deerfield Beach

Picked by David Shuff, Videographer

“This gourmet Mexican spot with sophisticated decor happily lacks the kitsch you find in many south-of-the-border restaurants. But where it really delivers is in the kitchen. My friend decided on some seafood tacos, which were amazing. I decided to try what Casa Maya is known for, its Mole sauce — it’s basically a chili sauce, the base of which is unsweetened chocolate, believe it or not. I went with the Mole Rojo Enchiladas; they were excellent and definitely worth a try. For dessert I went with the flan, and my friend decided on the Guava Cheesecake, which neither of us had ever heard of before. Guava and cheesecake, it turns out, is an amazing combination. Casa Maya Grill is located in the Cove Shopping Plaza on Hillsboro Blvd in Deerfield Beach, and is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
