de rodriguezChef Douglas Rodriguez celebrated the opening of his eponymous restaurant on Friday night, with more than 600 guests in attendance, delighted to get their first taste of Chef Rodriguez’s Nuevo Latino cuisine and a glimpse of the many surprises the restaurant has in store.

The party featured a sampling of the bold flavors prevalent in Chef Rodriguez’s signature ceviches, extensive raw bar, and sustainable seafood options. When asked about the menu offerings, Chef Rodriguez explained, “If I can find purveyors who ensure the products we get are responsibly grown, fished, picked, and so on, then I can feel good about the food on the plate and so can my guests.”

The night was filled with Latin flavor, a sprinkling of local celebs and a bit of eye candy. Former Heat player Ricky Davis, reality star, Ariel Stein, and Hip Hop artist Noel Osborne joined models from various agencies for the celebration, including Liliana Gomez.  Embracing the vibrancy of the elite South of Fifth neighborhood, the party continued into the late hours of the night.  De Rodriguez Ocean will host a lineup of special nights in the coming weeks and months.    “With De Rodriguez Ocean we’re offering an incredible experience – a trifecta of food, drink and entertainment” explained Director of Operations, Luke L’Heureux.
