RAYA, a restaurant concept by acclaimed Chef Richard Sandoval, showcases Pan-Latin Coastal Cuisine prepared with sustainable seafood, local produce and Chef Richard Sandoval’s signature Latin flavors.

Chef Sandoval is always exploring the potential of Latin cuisine by preparing regional recipes with unexpected ingredients and inventive techniques from around the globe. His style is inspired by the vibrant ethnic communities across Latin America, where home cooks have created new culinary traditions by blending the cuisines of their native and adopted lands.

Chef de Cuisine Greg Howe’s greatest passion is for colorful, fresh and organic products that he masterfully turns into delicious culinary creations. Chef Howe is constantly inspired by the variety and quality of the local produce and seafood found throughout southern California.

Before dinner, enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail in RAYA Bar, a flight of wine in Eno or champagne and a panoramic ocean view at 180Blu.
