Mixed-up geography and all, Amazon 2050 A.D. is on its way with some good dishes

The only real disappointment was the chicken Maya ($10.95) -- breast meat marinated in grapefruit and achiote and baked in a banana leaf. It proved unpleasantly dry. Either it was sentenced to hard labor in the oven, or the grapefruit had been too zealous and made the meat overly tough. The accompanying yucca was nothing to write home about, either. Yucca is currently enjoying its 15 minutes of fame, and I don't for a moment begrudge it the spotlight. But it is, let's face it, an insipid vegetable. I'll be glad when its celebrity wanes.

Amazon 2050 A.D., 3745 Greenbriar, 522-3837.
