An honors graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Juan José Cuevas commenced his culinary career in 1995 at the Michelin three-star restaurant Arkelare in San Sebastián, Spain. From there, he worked at the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco, El Raco in Barcelona and Essex House in New York City.

In his swift culinary ascent he worked with world renowned chefs, including Chef Sylvian Portay, Chef Santi Santamaria, Chef Alain Ducasse and Christian Delouvrier.

Today Chef Juan José Cuevas triumphantly returns to Puerto Rico as Executive Chef at 1919: the flagship restaurant at the new Condado Vanderbilt Hotel.
