Welcome to Maizal Astoria

Maizal Astoria is a family owned restaurant featuring authentic mexican cuisine from Puebla, Mexico. Opened in early 2014, Maizal has offered a unique dining experience to the Astoria community, and has quickly become one of the hottest local venues for dinner with friends and family, large events in our spacious dining room, and even for a quick drink at the bar.


Maizal Restaurant first opened in 2010 in the Rosebank neighborhood of Staten Island. Persevering through hurricanes, floods and a weak economy, the original restaurant continues to deliver outstanding and unique dishes as well as superb cocktails, with an ambiance to match. Our second location in Astoria, Queens opened in 2014. Maizal restaurant is family owned and operated.

Executive chef Wilmer Alejandro Santos is known by his family and peers as ``Aty``. Wilmer is a Graduate with Distinction from the French Culinary Institute, where he proudly earned a spot on the Dean's List. Wilmer's talent was further refined under the watchful eye of mentor German Munoz, as reflected in the popular, yet sometimes controversial, dishes served at Maizal. He leads by example and runs a very tight operation in the kitchen.
