Richard Sandoval is coming to the Ritz Carlton
The Ritz Carlton on Broad Street in the midst of a $24 million redesign. As part of that upgrade, the 10 Arts restaurant is giving way to Aqimero, a Latin seafood and small plates restaurant from chef/restaurateur Richard Sandoval. Sandoval’s restaurant group is based out of Colorado and has more than 40 restaurants around the globe.
The 206-seat Aqimero is aiming to open in May, 2016 with a wood-burning grill as the centerpiece of the restaurant and concept. Like 10 Arts when it was run by Eric Ripert and executed by chef Jennifer Carroll, seafood will be a big part of the menu. There will be a grilled fish of the day that will take advantage of the wood-burning grill. Whole roasted snapper will be served “Mexican beach campfire style” with tomato and chili adobo, avocado, tortillas, chayote slaw and limes.
