The Indigo Road Hospitality Group will open Mexican-inspired eatery Maya Sept. 24, in the 479 King St. space previously occupied by The Macintosh, which the group shut down March 7. Look for dishes that “celebrate uniquely bold flavors and traditional techniques through a selection of classic and reimagined Mexican dishes with hints of coastal influence,” a press kit said. 

Jon Murray will serve as Maya’s “chief restaurant officer,” and Brett Riley will be its executive chef. The restaurant will make its own masa — that means fresh tortillas, chips and tostadas — and the kitchen will churn out dishes like ceviche, plant-based “Flor de Calabaza” tacos, made with masa tempura-fried squash blossoms, or the “Gobernador,” a quesadilla-style riff on the classic cheese and chile-topped shrimp taco.

Designed by Charleston-based restaurant consultant David Leboutillier, Maya will seat 44 guests in its dining room and another 16 at the bar, where you’ll find drinks like the “Maya Margarita,” available on tap with either mezcal or tequila. 

Maya is Indigo Road’s eighth Charleston-area restaurant, with another set to open later this year. Once open, Maya will serve customers Wednesday from 5-10:30 p.m., Thursday-Saturday from 5 p.m.-2 a.m. (last dinner service at 10:30) and Sunday from 5-10:30 p.m. Eventually, the restaurant will add weekend brunch and a late night food program.
