About the restaurant
Shaya restaurant marries Israeli staples with Southern flavors and modern techniques, striking a balance between innovation and tradition. Shaya approaches Israeli cuisine as a grand mosaic, drawing influence and inspiration from North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Turkey and Greece. The contemporary menu reflects the ongoing evolution of Israeli food and celebrates the abundance of Louisiana. Shaya highlights seasonal, responsibly- and locally-sourced ingredients.

The wood-fire oven is central to both the menu and the dining experience, from the incredible homemade, wood-fired pita to vegetable-centric small plates and heartier entrees. Many of the dishes on the diverse menu are meant to be shared and enjoyed throughout many courses.

The best mediterranean food I've ever had! The lamb and shrimp kabobs were excellent. The fresh bread was delicious but the star of the show was the sujuk pide.

Everything was wonderful. This is a small quaint little place and there were not many people there this Wednesday night in July, but the food was exceptional and the service was wonderful. We wanted to try many different things and our waiter was excellent at making suggestions. Just so you know they do have a small beer selection and it looked like maybe tequila as well, but I could have this incorrect. We brought a bottle of wine.

About the restaurant
Mayas Restaurant is a captivating Latin dining experience with exciting social rhythms. We feature the cuisines of multiple countries of Latin American, but rather than simply transferring dishes we pay compliment to the ingredients that are natural to Latin America. Our food is prepared from scratch using classic and modern techniques but always remembering the aromas and flavors of our mother's and grandmother's kitchen. We invite you to choose your own escapade by selecting from our Plantains, Ceviches, Empanadas, Curries, Steaks, and Small Plates for a multi-course dining experience.

We were surprised at slow it was at Mayas. This is a neighborhood gem. I guess the summer heat is keeping folks away. The servers, Jessica and Ivan, are great. Edgar puts special care into the food and drink preparations!

Awesome. Homemade pasta. I had Eggplant Parmesan and cleaned the plate. Everyone around me was enjoying pizza and didn’t leave a crumb.

Food was good- better than I recall the last time we went at their old location on Magazine. Service was good. Prices on the high side for thai food, I think, And the biggest issue is how noisy the place is. You'd think in a brand new location they would add some features to mitigate the noise, and din from the concrete floors etc. Too bad they did not. I guess if we go again we'll just yell at our table-mates again.

About the restaurant
Misa is a hidden gem located in the Uptown side of Magazine Street . The brainchild of chef Tal Sharon, Misa serves a wide array of dishes specializing in Mediterranean seafood.
The atmosphere is unique with a dining room fit with a cozy lounge, and an outdoor patio perfect for an afternoon drink or two.
Steps away from some of Magazine Street's highlights, Misa is a perfect addition to your night on the town.
