Bay Area Power Couples: Felipe and Liza Sandoval of Maya Restaurant

It's hard to start a business in the Bay Area. And even harder to make it successful. We're inspired by the couples who have done it together and have decided to highlight them every week in our "Bay Area Power Couples" blog series.

Opened in 1999, Maya Restaurant quickly became one of the best Mexican fine dining destinations in the city, and a nationally-recognized and family-run one at that. It's helmed by the husband-wife team Felipe and Liza Sandoval, who are different sides of the same coin: Felipe's savvy business skills and shy demeanor perfectly complement Liza's bubbly, front-of-house charisma. Hope on over for their delicious authentic dishes and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a few margaritas from their bar!
