Concierge.com's insider take:
Long before it found its current home in the Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza Hotel, Pikayo was considered San Juan's most innovative restaurant. Credit Wilo Benet, a former chef de cuisine at Puerto Rico's Governor's Mansion and an alum of Le Bernardin in New York, whose pairing of Latin flavors and ingredients with Euro flair made him the island's most celebrated chef. Now well established in the firmament of Puerto Rican chefs, Benet continues to impress both locals and visitors with his traditional puertorriqueño basics and European classics. Choose from scallops with piquillo peppers and corn emulsion, sauteed shrimp in a saffron broth, and onion-drenched bistec encebollado (beef stew).
Open for lunch Tuesdays through Fridays noon to 3 pm; open for dinner Mondays through Saturdays 6 to 11 pm.
