The El Salvadorian chef cooks Nuevo Latino cuisine such as crispy red snapper stuffed with crabmeat and slow-roasted pork with onion
Chef Ricardo Cardona draws on more than 25 years of culinary experience to build modern cuisine on a foundation of the ingredients and centuries-old cooking traditions of his native El Salvador. These updated classics include tuna ceviche with bright watermelon, piquant jalapeño vinegar, and creamy coconut milk, as well as Cornish hen served with a wild mushroom-chorizo hash.
The restaurant's dining room also fuses antiquity and modernity. Curved metal chandeliers dangle from the dark, exposed ceiling beams while a bright red booth lines one of the stone walls, adding a vibrant burst of color to the space. Behind the booth, a series of backlit alcoves brim with jars filled with orchid petals, which float thanks to the jars' antigravity technology.
