Arturo Boada Cuisine Proves Boada's Still Got It

1 of 30



Witness his signature dish at Arturo Boada Cuisine: camarones henesy en hamaca. It's a dish that loosely translates to "I want to be buried in this sauce." The rich, almost velvety sauce is an arresting blend of butter, white wine, soy and ginger -- flavors that wouldn't seem to work with the additional components: hearts of palm, capers, tomatoes, sweet plantains and shrimp. It's an idiosyncratic dish that reflects Boada's scattered heritage (both personal and culinary - he's Colombian-born, with Italian and Spanish roots, and worked throughout Europe and Asia early in his career) and works on every level.
