Prepare to be impressed when you enter Old San Juan's hippest—and finest—restaurant. Its U.S.-born owner-chef, Peter Schintler, apprenticed with Raymond Blanc and Gordon Ramsay; here he's created a class act that's famous for its ultra-chic lounge bar. The restaurant's sensual and minimalist orange-and-white decor features high-back chairs and cushioned banquettes beneath recessed halogen lights. The menu uses many sustainable and non-modified ingredients prepared
California-French fashion, resulting in complex flavors and strong aromas. The yellowtail is served with lemongrass and compressed watermelon while the pork cheeks are served with a peach-poblano marmalade. For dessert, indulge in the Millionnaire's ice cream, topped with honeycomb and shaved truffles. You can build your own four- to six-course tasting menu, with or without pairings from the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence wine list, or order à la carte. In addition, the restaurant is accommodating to vegetarians, vegans, and those with food allergies and/or dietary restrictions.
