Chef Juan José Cuevas

Puerto Rico native and Culinary Institute of America honors graduate, Chef Juan José Cuevas began his professional career in 1995, at a three-star Michelin restaurant, Akelarre in San Sebastián, Spain. In 1997, he returned to the United States and continued enhancing his culinary skills as Tournant & Saucier for the Dining Room at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco under the internationally known Chef Sylvain Portay.

In July of 2000, Juan José joined the prestigious Alain Ducasse at the Essex House in New York as Saucier. Afterwards, he returned to Spain and completed an externship, staging at the Michelin-starred restaurant, El Raco de Can Fabes of Chef Santi Santamaría.  In 2001, Juan José returned to New York as Sous Chef under Chef Christian Delouvrier of the legendary restaurant, Lespinasse. During his tenure at Lespinasse, the restaurant received the highest accolade a food critic for the New York Times can award a New York restaurant, four stars.

His next move was to join Chef Dan Barber at Blue Hill where they both obtained international recognition thanks to Juan José’s culinary skills and for Dan’s passion for the farm to table concept. Under the command of Juan José, Blue Hill was recognized and rated three-stars by the New York Times and one-star by Michelin. Later, Juan José joined Chef Ed Brown as Chef de Cuisine at Restaurant 81, achieving one star from Michelin during their first year.

In 2009, Juan José was awarded, Chef de l’ Avenir, (Chef of the Future) by the International Academy of Gastronomy. Juan José was the Executive Chef at The Pluckemin Inn at Bedminster, New Jersey during the following two years.

After many years honing his culinary craft alongside some of the most notable chefs in the world, Juan José returns to Puerto Rico as Executive Chef of the luxurious Condado Vanderbilt.

    I am an Italian American transplant that moved to Dorado in Mid March from Las Vegas, NV. Vegas hosts some of worlds top chefs and restaurants so I was somewhat concerned about upscale restaurant choices in San Juan. Well, I can happily report I have not been disappointed.
    I have tried several restaurants in San Juan and by far my favorite restaurant to date is 1919 located in the Vanderbilt Hotel in Coronado.
    I have eaten there for lunch and dinner and the food and service is always exceptional. I would strongly suggest the pre fix menu for lunch or dinner. There is also a great outdoor ocean view terrace to enjoy cocktails before dinner or end your evening. There is also an opulent “members only” cigar lounge which offers upscale cigars and a knowledgeable staff.
