Herencia Kitchen & Espresso Bar
Herencia Kitchen & Espresso Bar is a casual space located in the main lobby of our Hotel. The concept, created by Chef Angel del Valle and Business Partner Yamil Pomales, was intended to provide San Juan metro area residents and our hotel guests with a unique coffee experience in the trendy Miramar area. Alongside coffee, Herencia offers a select menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It will be a showcase for Chef Angel del Valle's distinctive cuisine.
Herencia features two distinct areas. The Expresso Bar, located towards the front and facing Ponce de León Ave, features a long counter with a state of the arts Rancillo espresso machine, pastry displays and beautiful mahogany custom designed cabinet. The Espresso Bar features exclusively Gusto's Premium 100% Puerto Rican Coffee, harvested in the mountains of Yauco and Adjuntas. This unique space also features a wall mural of an early 20th century portrait of the site currently occupied by the Hotel and bar and displays photographs of that era.
The Espresso Bar provides sitting space for 16 patrons and features gourmet sandwiches, pastries and a daily homemade soup. IN the evening, like its French "café" counterparts, Herencia is be the ideal place in Miramar to enjoy a refreshing cocktail, a fine wine or an artisan crafted beer along with a selelection of Chef's Del Valle inspired Spanish tapas.
In the rear, there is yet another cozy and intimate space that sits up to 24 guests. The area opens up in its lateral sides to large panoramic windows facing the ivy covered walls of the hotel's driveway on the right or the quiet lobby on the left, an ideal space to sip a cup of cofee or ejoy a fine cocktail in the company of friends. This area features a brushed concrete wall an American cedar covered wall along with custom reupholstered banquettes and trendy Spider lamp.
Chef Angel del Valle designed a simple but select menu that expands the espresso bar concept to include dishes that form part of the complete culinary Puerto Rican Heritage.
