Fodor's Expert Review Marmalade
Peter Schintler, the U.S.-born owner-chef of Old San Juan's hippest—and finest—restaurant, apprenticed with Raymond Blanc and Gordon Ramsay. Here he's created a class act famous for its ultra-chic lounge bar. The restaurant's sensual and minimalist orange-and-white decor features high-back chairs and cushioned banquettes. The menu uses many sustainable and nonmodified 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 Millionaires 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. The restaurant is accommodating to vegetarians, vegans, and those with dietary restrictions.
