The Chilean is currently in residence at INTERSECT by Lexus
Give us a day, we’re going to eat around five times: breakfast, lunch, snacks, cocktails, dinner.
OK, one of those isn’t technically food, but still: five meals, five plates (or cups) to fill. Why not make each superlative?
Below, he picks out his five favorite meals in New York.
Well, four meals and a cocktail. As you do.

Breakfast: “I’m not big on breakfast, but if I ever need something to tide me over I like to stop into Chelsea Market for a pastry or a coffee. It is so close to the restaurant and there are so many options!”
Lunch: “Peter Luger. It’s a simple formula, but as good as steak gets! It’s right on par with the quality steak back home and reminds me of Don Julio in Buenos Aires, I think it’s the best steakhouse in the world.”
Snack: “I was lucky enough to visit Little Spain this week. I worked with Ferran Adria at elBulli many years ago. All of his tapas are exceptional but the Rabo de Toro (Oxtail) stood out in particular and made me a little homesick for Madrid!”
Dinner: “The Modern @ MOMA. Service is impeccable and the food is very well done. My wife and I fell in love with the tarte flambée and pretzel croissant.”
Cocktail: “One of my favorite cocktail bars is Angel’s Share. We visit this bar every time we are in New York! The cocktails are consistently balanced with very unique flavors. I don’t think I can pick just one!”
