constructed on stilts.

Maia Acquaviva is a managing Partner and Executive Chef of Oda House and she brings Georgian cuisine and a dose of Georgian culture and pride to the East Village. Maia moved to the United States from Georgia in 2007 and re-discovered her calling to cook upon which she took culinary courses in New York
