A restaurant business adventure in Puerto Rico

The story of one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, La Estación

Estacion-Front It takes tremendous ambition and serious gumption to buy an old abandoned gas station with aspirations to transform it into a successful restaurant, but that’s exactly what husband and wife team, Kevin Roth and Idalia Garcia did. ChefKevinR-Low Leaving their hectic New York City restaurant  lifestyle behind, the duo opened La Estación Nuyorican BBQ and Grill which features a seasonal menu of locally sourced produce, fish and meat cooked over natural charcoal and mango-wood. Award-lechon-low New York native and CIA educated, Chef Kevin Roth wasted no time exploring his passion for Caribbean barbeque by taking first place in a blind Lechón (roasted pig) tasting at the Cattleman’s Caribbean BBQ competition. Lechondiner1-low With its unique setting, talented chef and emphasis on sustainability and freshness, it is no wonder Fodor’s Travel just voted La Estación Top 10 Best Restaurants in the Caribbean! Estacion-patio-low   A unique al fresco ambiance surround you with tropical plants and flowers, taking you to a comfort area, just like enjoying your own paradise backyard. The bar area invites you to stay a while more enjoying their delicious cocktails or refreshing from beach day with a cold beer.
