When Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve debuts as the first Reserve in the Americas on Dec. 12, it will also usher in a groundbreaking level of culinary excellence with Mi Casa by José Andrés.
Heralded by one of the world’s most highly acclaimed chefs and inspired by the resort’s legendary location, Mi Casa will provide discerning travelers with a new gourmet dining experience suitable for the Caribbean’s premier luxury retreat, hotel officials said.
“Dorado Beach’s rich history provided amazing inspiration to put forward a bold menu celebrating the legacy of the people and cuisine that shaped this unique destination and to push me to share some of my own stories,” said José Andrés. Mi Casa will celebrate the many influences of Puerto Rico’s delectable gastronomy with a touch of Spanish influence.”
“The menu is inspired by indigenous recipes, the highest quality of local ingredients, and the exquisite wonderful flavors of the Caribbean, offering guests an unmatched culinary experience, just steps away from the ocean,” he added. “Puerto Rico is the perfect meeting place between Spain, the country I come from and America the country where I now belong. The meeting point of two worlds where magic can happen.”
Inspired by the island’s diverse culinary landscape, guests will be treated to an artfully crafted menu of locally caught seafood and avant-garde dishes.
Two months ago, the Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve began accepting reservations to stay at what will be Puerto Rico’s most lavish hotel property. The sprawling $342 million, 115-room ocean front luxury resort is located on the footprints of the former Laurance Rockefeller estate, a celebrated destination for more than 50 years.
