Master Chef Jesus Nunez – His Plate is His Canvas

0 419
I have been following Jesus Nunez on Facebook now for about half a year and every time he adds a new post he makes me smile. I just have to stop what I am doing to study a dish as if contemplating a painting in a gallery.

In following Chef Núñez’ passion for fusing old-world recipes with new-world preparations, Gastroarte is a meeting place for authentic Spanish flavors and nontraditional techniques, a crumble of Mediterranean and multicultural ingredients and molecular methods.

In the kitchen, he draws inspiration from his love of urban design and street art, designing his dishes to be colorful creations that many diners say are “too beautiful to eat.” The stage for these edible works of art offers its diners two unique dining experiences. In the Tapas and Bar Room guests can enjoy reinterpretations of Spanish tapas, while in the Dining and Garden Rooms a beautifully created dinner menu is available featuring the exploration of shape, color and most importantly flavor.”
