Morcilla Rolls with Pique Mayo

Santaella is a tropical oasis set in the bustling Placita de Santurce. Marketplace by day, La Placita turns into a local’s hangout by night. It’s casual and rustic. On the corner of Calle Canals, the simple white façade is intriguing and perks your curiosity -- what’s behind those closed doors? It’s Santaella, the signature restaurant of Chef Jose Santaella. Modern light fixtures, an interior garden, exposed walls and a killer mixology bar welcome you. Jose, a native of Puerto Rico, trained with Eric Ripert, Ferran Adria and Gary Danko during his time abroad. Four years ago, he turned his successful catering business into one of the finest restaurants on the Island. From baby octopus and chickpea casserole to veal cheeks and his famous blood sausage rolls, Jose delivers both traditional and modern dishes, paying homage to his beloved Puerto Rico.
