Celebrity chef and Puerto Rico native Wilo Benet's flagship restaurant makes the most of its elegant surroundings at the Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza hotel. Works from local artists line the walls, and the atmosphere is formal but never hushed. The menu offers a twist on traditional Puerto Rican classics as well as more international flavors. Choose from the thoughtfully crafted tasting menu or order à la carte. There is a large selection of starters; particularly good
are the pork belly sliders, the spicy tuna on crispy rice (known here as pegao), and the foie gras with ripe plantains and black truffle honey. For main courses, options include succulent petit duck magret with crimini mushrooms and a raspberry vinegar gastrique and North Atlantic swordfish in a pigeon pea escabeche with a ripe plantain emulsion. Don't be surprised if Benet himself stops by your table to make sure everything is just to your liking.
