Celebrating a special occasion? Be sure to book a table at Marmalade Restaurant & Wine Bar in the historic heart of Old San Juan, which reopened last November and has been satisfying diners since.
In the aftermath of the storm, when there were offers to help send resources, the restaurant’s owner and renowned chef, Peter Schintler, encouraged people to visit instead in an interview with NBC: “We can grow food and we will not run out of rum or wine,” he said. “But we need people to come visit and to share stories and to leave money.”
Marmalade serves farm-to-table delicacies like white bean soup, a TripAdvisor favorite made with scallions, black truffle oil and pancetta dust. Marmalade’s menu is vegan- and vegetarian-friendly, with tasting menus that appeal to carnivores and raw-food fanatics alike.
Wash down your meal with a bottle of wine chosen from Marmalade’s pages-long wine list, or satisfy your sweet tooth with an original cocktail like the Cereal Killer, a mix of rye, bourbon, granola, almond milk, lavender honey and local oranges.
