    Chef Estefania

    Private Chef

Hi, my name is Chef Estefania!

Ninety percent of Costa Rican restaurants have menus that are very similar.  That is why I have decided to offer an option for the people who visit our beautiful country that is a  combination of International Food and local Costa Rican cuisine.  No one who’s ever visits Costa Rica is likely to forget Gallo Pinto, and those who haven’t visited couldn’t possibly understand how people can be so enamored with rice and beans.  Gallo Pinto, pronounced “guy-yoh pin-to” is a wonderfully fresh and hearty combination of rice, veggies and beans.

Other culinary delights are Red Snaper and Mahi Mahi, ceviche, pipa (coconut) fresh off the tree on the beach, Christmas tamales and other holiday and festival specialties.  Real Costa Rican coffee from a chorreador de café  and not to forget — Casado which is the most famous typical meal in all of Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

Style: International and Costa Rican Cuisine

Signature Plates:

  • Huevos Rancheros with sautteé potatoes
  • Gallo Pinto with sour cream and sweet plantain
  • Tuna Poki
  • Mahi Mahi House Special
  • SURF & TURF

Prices: $-$$

    Chef Frank

    Better Fed Bellies!

Better Fed Bellies!

Hello, my name is Chef Frank.

I am classically trained in French and Lebanese cuisine and had the opportunity to hone my craft as an Executive Chef in Los Angeles and Costa Rica for more than a decade.  As an admitted food glutton that has traveled to over thirty countries, I bring a different perspective on how ingredients are used together to create truly unique dishes.  Each ingredient is as important as the finished plate, so I have established relationships with local farms and fish mongers, allowing me to hand select the highest quality ingredients available.

Style: World Cuisine and Seafood

Price:  $$$

 

Signature dishes:

  • Pacific Garlic Shrimp with Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus & Española Bread
  • Mussels and Scallops in White Wine Shallots & Thyme Butter
  • Pepper Seared Ahi & Heart of Palm Salad with Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette
  • Blackened Seabass in White Wine Caper Sauce served with Porcini Risotto, Crimini Mushrooms, and Grilled Asparagus.

One thought on “Private Chef

    I called the concierge desk at Special Places because I was looking for information about Christmas Dinners in the area. They suggested we hire a private chef and it turned out to be the most wonderful idea! We booked Chef Frank to prepare a dinner for 12 at Christmas and it was truly amazing! Frank is funny and engaging personality, and his food was EXCELLENTE. Best part of all is there was NO CLEAN UP!! All in all it was a terrific experience and we will definitely book a private chef again!
