Fodor's Expert Review Marmalade

$$$$ Old San Juan Eclectic Fodor's Choice

Peter Schintler, the U.S.-born owner-chef of Old San Juan's hippest—and finest—restaurant, apprenticed with Raymond Blanc and Gordon Ramsay. His dishes incorporate local and organic ingredients, and his cuisine is influenced by both California and French styles of cooking, resulting in complex flavors and strong aromas. 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, perhaps choosing wine pairings from the excellent list, and the restaurant accommodates vegetarians, vegans, and those with dietary restrictions. The sensual, minimalist, orange-and-white decor features high-back chairs and cushioned banquettes that are comfortable and modern.
