Celebrity chef Martin Berasategui to open restaurant in Punta Cana

The famous Spanish chef Martin Berasategui is scheduled to open a restaurant in the tourist resort area of Punta Cana, in the country’s easternmost region.

The opening, scheduled for March, will operate in partnership with the Spanish hotel chain Meliá, which operates three hotels in this tourist area.

The chain also operates a hotel in Santo Domingo, the Dominican capital.

Just three months ago Berasategui opened a similar restaurant at the Meliá hotel in Playa del Carmen, in Quintana Roo, Mexico. The Meliá chain of hotels operates three all-inclusive hotels in Punta Cana.

For the past 35 years Berasategui has dedicated his life to the culinary arts.  His world renowned restaurant is in Lasarte, in northern Spain.

The Berasategui restaurants currently receive seven Michelin starts, in the Michelin Guide.

In 2007 the restaurant occupied the 27th spot on the list of “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants”, put together by the famous “Restaurant Magazine” of London.  In addition to Punta Cana, Berasategui plans to open restaurants in China and Azerbaijan.
