Lucia is set within Casa Colonial Beach Resort, Puerto Plata's most upscale hotel. I have truly started my year off on the right foot as Chef Rafael Vasquez is truly a culinary mastermind. I love with he does with local, fresh produce like yucca and pumpkin. While dying to sample everything, I opted for the Tres-viche, seared foie gras, and the Angus Beef tenderloin. All was incredible. The service: flawless.
Tres Viche: Three different types of ceviche in one single dish. Tuna, lobster, and Chilean Sea Bass
Seared Foie Gras: Pear, rum, mango sauce, balsamic glaze, yucca cake
Angus Beef Tenderloin, whipped yucca with Roquefort cheese, steamed broccoli, brandy-shallot sauce (finally got the settings right on my camera)
Duck Connection: Grilled breast, cripy leg confit and fresh foie gras served with a mango rum sauce, seared pear, and whipped pumpkin.
