Yucatecan cuisine prepared from la abuela's recipes and using the finest ingredients has made this family restaurant so famous, it now claims a hip corner on the arty part of Playa's la Quinta. Starters include fine versions of the salbutes and panuchos sold on Mérida's street corners, while entrées stray from tradition while including all sorts of chiles and fruits. Chaya, similar to spinach, appears frequently, and several dishes are flambéed with Xtabentun, a honey-flavored liqueur dubbed the Mayan aphrodisiac. There's a noisy buzz in the two-story dining room—choose an upstairs table by a window to take in the shows both inside and on Fifth Avenue.—Maribeth Mellin

Open daily noon to 11 pm.
