Having honed his craft, he worked at the Ocean Sun Casino (the most luxurious casino in Central America) and had the opportunity to open four restaurants. Chef Alarcon Ruiz has a colorful array of accolades, which include being a culinary professor. Guests can now enjoy the carefully curated options he has selected for Luxe that will likely please the taste buds.

Featuring such items as paella, fresh seafood,a carving station, delectable desserts, a varied wine list and after dinner cordials, Luxe (in its new incarnation) offers a unique dining experience, for the patron wanting a diverse menu.
