With seven restaurants and eight bars to choose from, celebrity chef Gerardo Rivera takes his patrons on a gastronomic adventure. Options include traditional Mexican and local Dominican dishes, as well as Mediterranean, Japanese, Italian, French, and Peruvian ceviches. And there’s a fun sports bar serving creative tapas.
