The Ritz-Carlton is partnering with acclaimed U.S.-based chef Jose Andres at the newly announced Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.
Slated to open in December, 2012, Dorado Beach, in the Caribbean, will be the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve in the Americas and the second worldwide. It could prove popular with meeting & incentive travel planners.
Heralded as a trailblazer of avant-garde and traditional Spanish cuisine, Andres will fuse his knowledge of haute cooking and regional flavors.
“My vision is to create a menu that tells the story of this fascinating region and its diverse cultures and influences and features a unique blend of quality ingredients, rich with the flavors of the island,” said Andres.
For Andres, the recent recipient of the 2011 James Beard Outstanding Chef Award, this will be his first restaurant outside of the continental United States.
