I previously wrote about the outstanding cuisine at Rosewood San Miguel’s 1826 restaurant. Well, chef Carlos Hannon has left the hotel (for Rosewood’s Little Dix Bay in the Caribbean). The new chef in San Miguel is Victor Palma, who was previously the chef de cuisine at Las Ventanas al Paraiso, where he was intrumental in introducing that legendary resort’s new menus earlier this year. I got the exclusive sneak peak at Palma’s new menu at San Miguel’s 1826, due to be rolled out in the coming days. Here’s a quick look at what to expect.
