Brunch & Dinner
In the best area of 14th Street, modern homage to authentic Mexican Cuisine, featuring local ingredients that result in exquisite and vibrant creations.

It´s all about the corn - the maiz - at this upscale Mexican stunner from chef Alam Méndez of México City´s acclaimed Pasillo de Humo. Four kinds are turned into fresh masa daily for the tacos, tamales, and other corn-bassed essentials, and even the art on the walls is corn-themed.

Vegetables and fish are one of the Chef's great specialties, including tuna tostada and yellow ceviche, culminating with the traditional catch of the day.

Mezcal Room an extensive bar downstairs, we have a lot of Mexican spirits, including most famous Oaxacan beverage mezcal. There’s a wide spectrum of mezcals, with dozens of flavors ranging

We are a universe of colors, of textures, of flavors; the print of hands worn down legends that draw the magic of a culture willing to be discovered.

    The food and service were wonderful. However, management must do something about the noise. It was too loud most of the time in several spots with no regard to people at adjacent tables simply trying to have a conversation.

    Absolutely wonderful experience here. My dad and I were out walking around and needed a late lunch. Fortunately Maiz64 was still open at 2 on a Sunday, and the food blew my mind because it’s so simple. They don’t drown the food in sauces or spices, it’s just good Mexican food cooked to perfection. The manager greeted me and my dad like we were old friends right when we walked in the door. Beginning to end, the best meal we’ve had in DC this trip. Must-have: the potato quesadillas.

    Food is incredible. Very authentic great tortillas. Good all around. Service could take it up a notch. Brought a lot of the food to the wrong table while I was there. Was not a big issue because they did say what the dish was otherwise a lot of people would have been eating the wrong dish. But this would no way impact me returning because it was quickly solved and the food was worth it.

    This is an extraordinary dining experience. Saying it is the best Mexican food in DC is misleading because there are only a handful of Mexican-themed restaurants that deliver one incredible dish after another. We started margaritas that were a perfect blend of tart and just a little sweet. From there, we had a "compliments of the house" small terrine of eggplant and spices to spread on large, round crispy chips that had not even a hint of grease. The eggplant spread was terrific. Appetizers were fish tacos that were very flavorful , and a corn tamal (different presentation from what I've had before but still very tasty. Main course was grilled steak that came with sweet potato puree and a dark sauce for dipping -- all terrific. The staff is exceptional, responsive, and talk to you like they really love working at Maiz64 and care about being friendly and attentive. All-in-all, a wonderful night out.

    We were disappointed that the menu shown on the website is no longer available; we had made our decision to try Maiz64 based on several dishes that are no longer offered. Service was polite, but part of our appetizer order was forgotten and one of the main courses was served quite a bit later than everyone else in our party. Also, they offer practically no mocktails, so for someone who is not planning to drink, the choices were limited. It may be a better bar than a restaurant, given the large tequila and mezcal offerings.

    The food was great, and better than expected. The wait staff was friendly, prompt, and very knowledgeable. They were easy to talk with. I think that food this good gives the wait staff confidence in what they present, and leads to an overall excellent dining experience. I will recommend Maiz64 to my friends, and I plan to come back.

    Wildly overpriced for what you get. Had guac & chips, suckling pig, & chicken tacos. Margs were absolutely not worth $15 / drink— nothing special about them, if anything they were below average. Tortillas for guac as well as the guac were very under-salted and plain tasting. Suckling pig tasted good, but not $35 good. Regrettable $200 meal for four of us that probably could have been a better $80 meal at a different Mexican place.
