The Mayan: Ancient American experience in Utah
Larry Miller is one of the biggest auto dealers along the Wasatch Front in Utah, and also the owner of the Utah Jazz..... his new venture: the largest restaurant in the state!! A wanna be "The Rainforest Cafe".... "The Mayan" takes ancient American experience to Utah. Dining at the Mayan is a three-dimensional experience in which after winding your way through a stone- walled labyrinth intended to simulate the feel of entering an ancient Mayan temple, your assigned table may be on any of four levels surrounding a huge atrium that affords everyone a view of the cliffs and waterfall around which the show of cliff divers who splash into a fake lagoon at the bottom of the waterfall takes place (if you wanna get splashed, request a table on first level next to the lagoon). You'll feel as if you've stepped into the giant tree house in the film "Swiss Family Robinson". The food at the Mayan is basically standard Mexican-American.
"The Mayan" is located at the Jordan Commons shopping mall in Sandy, Utah.
