Jaco Hotel Restaurant gets new Chef

Jaco Hotel DoceLunas is pleased to welcome new Chef Justine Gulledge Zegna (proprietress of the famous Planet X Restaurant in Rehobeth Beach, MD) to Restaurant Eclipse here in Jaco Costa Rica. Justine’s culinary sensibilities tend toward the organic local sourcing practice that is increasingly poplular in the U.S. Using fresh local foods, including tropical fruits and spices, such as Cass fruit and Thai galangal grown on our Jaco hotel property, Justine is busy creating new menus that present a fusion of traditional Costa Rican food, caribbean ital nourishment, and asian cooking traditions.

As usual our menu will continue to change daily. Justine will soon join this blog as a regular contributor, with menus, recipes, and tales of shopping, cooking, and surfing adventures here in lovely Jaco Costa Rica.

As the sixty attendees at our recent Eclipse Surf Lounge locals appreciation night can tell you, this is THE place to eat in Jaco now. Give us a call at 011-506-2643-2211 and find out what’s cooking!

New Jaco hotel restaurant

Restaurant Eclipse at Jaco hotel DoceLunas will soon be welcoming a guest chef from a mysterious location – let’s call it “Planet X.” As much as we love our current chef and our ever changing menu, we are thrilled to welcome this versatile chef. One of her core menu concepts: all dishes come in a vegetarian version. Our current hotel chef will stay on as sous chef so don’t worry – the incredible handmade icecream with fresh tropical fruit from the hotel property will still be available.
