Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve Partners With Acclaimed Chef

Dorado Beach, one of the Caribbean’s most celebrated destinations, and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, LLC recently announced their partnership with acclaimed chef José Andrés at the newly announced ultra-luxury Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.

For Andrés, the recent recipient of the 2011 James Beard Outstanding Chef Award, this will be his first restaurant outside of the continental United States. Slated to open in December 2012, Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, will be the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve in the Americas and the second in the exclusive portfolio worldwide, joining Phulay Bay in Krabi, Southern Thailand.

Heralded as a trailblazer of avant-garde and traditional Spanish cuisine, Andrés will fuse his knowledge of haute cooking and regional flavors to offer guests of Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve a truly exceptional culinary experience in the heart of the Caribbean.

The restaurant’s menu will be a delectable union of the island’s classical “cocina criolla” cuisine, the vibrant flavors of Chef’s native country and the rich nuances of Americana cooking. With impressive views of the Caribbean coastline, facing the western sunset, guests are invited to experience true beachfront dining just steps from the water’s edge. Open for breakfast and dinner, the restaurant will offer indoor and outdoor seating, private dining spaces and a lively Rum Bar.
