Plan to linger for several hours at this formal, white-on-white restaurant, set inside the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico; the dishes here are as rich, complex, and deserving of careful appreciation as the surrounding art exhibits. Chef Wilo Benet, widely regarded as one of Puerto Rico's culinary rock stars, draws on the country's African, Indian, and Spanish flavors to create what he calls "exotic criollo cusine." The menu is seafood-heavy; two perpetual standouts are the sesame-glazed tuna carpaccio, served with a scoop of wasabi sorbet; and the blackened salmon drizzled with caper butter.

Tip: Check out the interior walls, which are often alive with arty video installations.
