Aqimero opens at the Ritz Carlton

Aqimero opens at the Ritz Carlton

I attended the grand opening party of Aqimero, hosted by Cashman & Associates.  Aqimero is a new addition to the Philadelphia Avenue of the Arts area. This Latin American restaurant is located in the lobby of the Ritz Carlton in Philadelphia. Once you walk through the door, the ambiance is sure to take your breath away.

Richard Sandoval is the chef at Aqimero. Not only is he a world renowned chef, but he is also a restaurateur who has restaurants all over the world, and Philadelphia is lucky to be added to this list.  I was grateful to have the opportunity to take this picture with him. He was so lively and absolutely humble. He even suggested where we should stand to ensure that our picture turned out great! What an honor to meet him! Aqimero features a sushi, ceviche and raw bar. There’s also a gorgeous wood-burning grill that adds perfect flavor to seafood and meats served at this restaurant.

One thing that Aqimero served that evening were steak tacos. WOW! I was totally impressed with the tenderness and flavor from the grill. I couldn’t get enough of these that evening. As soon as the steak came out, you had to get right in line because they did not last! I highly recommend trying it.

This was an event to remember. The Ritz was filled with such fabulous people, outstanding food, ever lasting drinks and great music. Thank you Cashman & Associates, and a special thank you to Aqimero for coming to Philadelphia. You are one of my favorites!
