About Maya Lovelace

Maya Lovelace is bringing Southern flavors and soulful storytelling to Portland, OR. After tours in the legendary kitchens of Sean Brock and Naomi Pomeroy, she followed her heart back to the flavors of her North Carolina home, schooling Portland with generous 10-course Southern Appalachian feasts at Mae. After three years as an award winning pop-up (Eater Young Gun 2016, Eater PDX Chef of the Year 2016, JBFA Rising Star semifinalist 2017 and 2018, Zagat National 30 under 30 2017, StarChefs rising star 2018) Maya is finally opening a brick and mortar location with Yonder, a Southern meat & three with Portland charm, coming this year to Northeast Portland.
