Dining room at Fuego, Long Beach, CA

Fuego Restaurant Review

: A visit to the restaurant at Long Beach's Hotel Maya will make diners feel like they've arrived at their holiday destination in Mexico. The hotel has been completely remodeled, with vibrant and modern south-of-the-border colors and theme. Fuego offers a pleasant indoor dining room, but we recommend sitting on the large patio no matter the time of day or night. It’s right on the water, with views of the Queen Mary and the downtown Long Beach skyline. Chef Victor Juarez’s menu features fresh seasonal ingredients. Start with one of several ceviches. We preferred the "Indian-style" ceviche el atun --- ahi with sesame oil, lime, coriander and edamame --- over the Mexican shrimp ceviche dressed with avocado and tortilla chips. Corn sopes are rich, filled with black beans, squash and tequila cream. Entrées include plantain-crusted mahi mahi with lemon-potato purée, crêpes stuffed with crab meat and rock shrimp in a poblano sauce, and a chili-rubbed bone-in rib-eye. Dessert includes traditional flan and dulce de leche cheesecake. Expect to find an extensive list of cocktails, as well as beers from around the world and a large but predictable wine selection.
