Sorcé, the latest dining spot at the W Retreat & Spa Vieques Island, has opened. Located eight miles off the southeast coast of Puerto Rico on Vieques Island, Sorcé’s kitchen is headed by Fernando Coppola, the former sous chef at Alain Ducasse’s Latin and Caribbean miX on the Beach. Sorcé replaces miX on the Beach .
Named after one of Vieques Island’s archaeological sites, Sorcé has an indoor and outdoor dining space that offers views of the Caribbean Sea.
Sorcé’s seasonal menu features Puerto Rican cuisine that is locally sourced. Signature dishes include fish marinated in mojo; Vieques-style mofongo , chicken, skirt steak, and shrimp with fried plantains; stuffed Caribbean lobster; and sopa de marisco a Viequense, a bouillabaisse of fresh scallops, jumbo shrimp, cartucho, and local organic root vegetables. The drink menu includes wines from North and South America, cocktails, and rum flights.
"We would like to thank chef Alain Ducasse and his culinary team for creating a dynamic, first-rate dining destination that was key to this successful launch," said Greg White, general manager of the 156-room W Retreat & Spa Vieques Island. "As we evolve to meet the needs of our jet-set guests, our food and beverage strategies remain critical to enhancing overall guest experience while also drawing in locals."
