Hell’s Kitchen alum Paula Dasilva will transport your taste buds around the world with her latest culinary concept, Artisan Beach House.
After 20 years of cooking and exploring different corners of the globe, chef Paula Dasilva has whipped up an eclectic menu at Artisan Beach House for those who yearn to travel.
What was your inspiration for the menu?
It’s globally inspired. I wanted the menu to be a little bit of all of my travels and a compilation of some of my favorite foods from those destinations.
If I had to pick one, I would say the octopus. We do it with an Indian inspiration, so it’s different than the Mediterranean influence that is more common.
Our chocolate chip cookies. We bake everything in-house, and every time a fresh batch of cookies comes out of the oven, I stand there thinking, “Is there a batch that didn’t come out perfectly round that we need to eat?”
What makes Artisan Beach House a dining destination?
Three things: One is the view with the ocean. The second is the service. And of course, the food. It’s nothing fancy or over-the-top; it’s very simple and we use great ingredients. I want people to say, “Wow, this is really good and unexpected.”
