El Blok: A Puerto Rico Star Chef's New Beach Retreat
“Everything should be simple at the beach,” says Simon Baeyertz, co-owner of El Blok, a new hotel on the island of Vieques, just off the east coast of mainland Puerto Rico. A white concrete latticework exterior encircles 22 rooms, which feature brightly colored Spanish floor tiles. The restaurant serves as the hotel’s social center, and San Juan star chef José Enrique serves refined takes on Puerto Rican cuisine, such as bacon-and-egg empanadas, and lamb and pork cooked on an oversize rotisserie. “I like to say we’re a restaurant with rooms above,” Baeyertz says. This appeared in the May 2014 issue.
