Tacos & Tequila

Tacos & Tequila is the first establishment of its kind launched in partnership with Tequila Patrón.

The tacos are the star of the restaurant and its menu, designed by Executive Chef Juan José Cuevas, includes eight varieties of these Mexican delights, like our Pork Belly Taco, with pickled “papaya”, peanuts, cilantro, red onion, and “chile de árbol”. There is also a selection of vegetarian, fish and chicken tacos

Other dishes that go perfectly with the fun and casual environment of space, are salads, tortilla soup and nachos. An outstanding dessert selection includes plates such as the “Churro Ice Cream Sandwich”. The drink offerings, made with more than nine varieties of Tequila Patrón and Patrón Roca, include specialty cocktails made with herbs and organic and fresh ingredients purchased from local farmers spices as well as an appetizing variety of margaritas. Refresh with “cerveza”, margaritas, sangrías, or mojitos!

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.
