As your trusted Lexus dealers near Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, we’re always excited to hear about the things that Lexus does. We’re thrilled the automaker opened INTERSECT BY LEXUS, for instance. Located in New York City, INTERSECT BY LEXUS is a cultural place where ideas and people come together. It’s also a place where people can enjoy a delicious meal prepared by chefs from all over the world thanks to its Global Chef-in-Residence program.

“The Global Chef-in-Residence program was conceived as a way to give New Yorkers a chance to experience a new cuisine without having to get on an airplane. For up and coming chefs, it is an opportunity to give people in New York a taste of what they are creating around the globe,” says Kirk Edmondson, general manager of INTERSECT BY LEXUS – NYC. “For the next 4 to 6 months, Chef Sergio [Barroso] will share his vision of Latin America in the heart of the Meatpacking District.”

During his four to six month tenure at INTERSECT BY LEXUS, the owner of Latin America’s Restaurante 040 will feature a tasting menu consisting of 12-course small plates curated from the 30 or so Chef Barroso has created over the years. Barroso will change his menu daily to highlight local flavors and various avant-garde cooking techniques. As a result, Barroso will infuse a new dynamic into the restaurant every day that he acts as its head chef.

Chef Barroso’s turn as Global Chef-in-Residence at INTERSECT BY LEXUS begins in April, 2019. If you’ve ever wanted to go to NYC, we encourage you to plan a trip soon so you can enjoy delicious food prepared by one of Chile’s most celebrated chefs.
