Welcome home. Join us for lunch or dinner at Chileno Bay’s newest gathering place—where the best of Mediterranean culinary influences meets the vibrant color and flavor of Latin American cooking. An active, open hearth kitchen takes center stage, where fresh ingredients and artisanal preparation are the main forms of expression in seasonal menus.

Chef de Cuisine

Eliana Godinez

To the open-hearth kitchen at YAYA, Chef Eliana brings influences from Mexico and the Mediterranean. Born in Mexico City, she studied gastronomy before traveling to seaside towns of Italy to discover the cuisine of her mother’s family and to work under Chef Massimo Bottura of a three Michelin star restaurant. There, she found flow the Italian way—using the freshest ingredients and flours, practicing thoughtful and attentive fermentation, and finding community in bread baking. Chef Eliana returned to the cuisine of Mexico City for five years before discovering again the lure of the sea at YAYA, where she now works side-by-side with her husband, Orli Del Angel, Chileno Bay's Executive Sous Chef.
