1. Maya 1191 First Ave, New York, NY 10065 (Upper East Side)

The Mexican restaurant landscape in New York is messy and crowded -- there are far too many spots that feel like factory operations with mediocre guacamole. Richard Sandoval's Maya stands far above the pack with traditional plates, tequila and mezcal flights, and four kinds of guacamole. The Upper East Side restaurant's bottomless brunch is a weekend institution where unlimited small plates and free-flowing cocktails like sparkling sangria and mango mimosas rule the antique-tiled dining room.
