For Avocado Toast or Fish Tacos in Beaver Creek or Avon Go to Maya in Westin Riverfront

If you’re visiting Beaver Creek or Avon and wanting avocado toast, head to Maya in the Westin Riverfront. While staying in the hotel for a work and leisure trip, I ate every meal at Maya. That’s typically something I don’t do traveling, but it was convenient and everything I tried was delicious. Maya is one of Chef Richard Sandoval’s restaurants and features a vibrant take on traditional Mexican dishes.

Let’s start with breakfast, which in my case was brunch. I love avocado toast. But, it has to be made with fresh avocado. I also really love sourdough bread so when I saw avocado toast on the menu, I went for it. The rustic sourdough bread was topped with avocado, cotija cheese, radishes, cherry tomatoes, and “everything bagel” seasoning. It’s garnished with cilantro and I added a poached egg. It was delicious and super easy to replicate at home. It’s healthy and filling.

It’s no secret I’m a fish taco fan. I love them, almost as much as I love shrimp and grits. Getting table side guacamole is a given if I see it on the menu. So is a really good margarita. Maya checked both of those boxes for dinner. Maya has a variety of tacos on the menu, but I went for the mahi mahi tacos. The fish is topped with chipotle slaw, avocado and cilantro. I got the sauce on the side since I’m not a saucy person. It was wonderful for dipping though. The tacos didn’t last long – I devoured all three! The pineapple lemongrass margarita paired beautiful with the tacos. I wasn’t sure if I would like lemongrass in a cocktail but this was light, refreshing and a delightfully different twist on a margarita.
