VENTANAS Restaurant & Lounge
New Jersey restaurateur Alexander Duran (Co-owner @SonCubanoNJ) is launching VENTANAS Restaurant & Lounge, a Cuban-Asian-American fusion eatery at The Modern, a new residential development from SJP Properties in Fort Lee, NJ.
Cuban dining is getting a boost from David Burke, the chef behind BLT Prime, the steakhouse at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC.
Burke, who lives in Fort Lee, will be the culinary managing director at VENTANAS, which will feature a menu by Celebrity Chef Ricardo Cardona who serves as the chef for the New York Yankees during home games that will be Cuban-Asian-American “fusion” dishes.
The 7,000-square-foot space will seat 150 people in the dining room, which comes with a chef’s table, 50 people in the tapas lounge and bar, and 75 to 100 people on the outdoor terrace bar and lounge.
A regular on “Iron Chef America,” Burke has a stable of restaurants including Tavern62 and Woodpecker in New York; Dirt House in Sea Bright, NJ; The King Bar and Red Salt Room in Garden City, NY, in addition to his Trump location — and BLT Prime by David Burke, at the Trump International Hotel in DC. – NEW YORK POST
