About Us

THE FOOD AT ARCA IS A UNIQUE STYLE OF MEXICAN CUISINE THAT DRAWS ON A BROAD PALETTE OF CULTURAL INFLUENCES.

Inspired by Chef Maya’s childhood in Mexico and cooking career in San Francisco, the menu reflects many traits of classic California Cuisine, using local, seasonal produce with a farm-to-table philosophy.

Our menu features the very best produce from local beaches, gardens and farms, all found at their peak, lovingly prepared with modern cooking techniques and a contemporary global sensibility.

ARCA IS OPEN TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY FROM 6PM
