Due to Hurricane Maria, W Retreat & Spa, Vieques Island and its restaurant Sorcé are closed through December 31, 2018.
Dining options on the outlying islands of Culebra and Vieques vary greatly in quality, but Sorcé is a virtually guaranteed great meal. Chefs harvest ingredients directly from the hotel’s own garden to prepare dishes that are infused with fresh flavors and bright, tropical colors. Try the grilled shrimp over pasta, tossed with cherry tomatoes, fresh honey basil, pumpkin, and the secret ingredient: anise-spiked rum. Vegetarians and vegans will appreciate the special meat- and dairy-free menu, which features plates that are far more imaginative than the typical veg fare. The agedashi tofu, for example, is stir-fried with mushrooms, cilantro, scallions, and black pepper. Guests can eat in the dining room or an al fresco wrap-around terrace. If you can’t see the ocean, you’ll certainly be able to hear it.
