Celebrity chef and restaurateur Richard Sandoval opened his first restaurant in Philadelphia with the debut of Aqimero, located in the iconic Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia. Richard Sandoval is world-renowned for combining Latin ingredients with international flavors and inventive techniques to create new and unexpected concepts.
Sandoval’s “made from scratch” approach is reflected within each flavorful dish at Aqimero, with a menu focused on sustainable seafood, steaks, ribs and poultry. Guests can select hand-blended marinades to complement their grilled fish or meat of choice, which boasts a unique flavor from the restaurant’s wood-fired grill and smoker. The Seafood and Raw Bar offers a combination of favorites including mussels, clams, oysters, shrimp cocktail and lobster tail, alongside an impressive assortment of unique sushi and ceviche. Salads and savory sides round out the menu, with refreshing, seasonal craft cocktails, an international wine list and wide selection of Mezcal offered to complement the menu.
Aqimero is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is available for private parties.
