Returning yesterday to Puerto Rico from a boistrous Media Conference at Jimmy’s Kitchen (305-670-1502) in Wynwood Art District, Miami Beach and now Pinecrest, Chef Roberto Trevino wears his movie star looks with modesty. However, do not underestimate this pretty boy. He’s got the chops in the kitchen and has earned his stripes one impeccable dish and restaurant opening at a time.
As co-founder of ñosh I south beach Trevino brings with him a sentient understanding of food and its preparation garnered in his native, San Francisco one of the world’s indisputable culinary capitals.
The opening of the El Conquistador Resort brought him to Puerto Rico where an amalgam of international flavour influences and tropical climes was for Trevino nothing short of cathartic.
ñosh I south beach is a fun and fabulous culmination of Trevino’s uncanny ability to open restaurants whose immediate success has catapulted him to the fore front of the foodie chain. His flag ship Latin-Asian Budatai is herald as one of Puerto Rico’s best. Bar Gitano taps into all of our inner soulful flamenco with tapas and sun bursts of award-winning paellas, and the gathering place for jet set denizens and locals alike is El Barril. All combined these eateries are a testament to Roberto Trevino’s prescient vision.
The cavernous 16,000 Casa Lola, an authentic criolla kitchen, is set to feed the ‘discriminating masses’ and his fifth restaurant, a collaboration with NYC restaurateur Howard Greenstone, is set to open in a matter of months.
Forthcoming editions of ñosh are being planned for the Saborea in San Juan Puerto Rico (April 20-22), the Aspen Food & Wine Classic (June 24-16), the Los Angeles & Food and Wine Festival (August 16-18) with a grand annual finale during the lauded New York Food & Wine Festival (October 17-20) where Trevino is invited to appear as a featured celebrity guest.
His fame has been fanned by frequent television appearances that include a battle against renowned chef Mario Batali on Iron Chef America and as a contestant on Next Iron Chef with Rachael Ray and on the popular Kandela program that airs daily 4 Minutes with Robert Trevino – Cook Ship.Inc.
