The Chef’s Table is a chance for me to get to know a small gathering of guests who want a multi-sensory experience in dining on one of the City Different’s most romantic patios, in one of the world’s most culturally and historically diverse places,” said Quiñones. “As a chef with a lot of energy and excitement about cooking, I like to think of my culinary creations as being in Technicolor—I use the best ingredients from the local farmers’ market and enjoy interacting with guests as they taste each carefully crafted dish.”
