Thomas Stork launches a new gastronomic concept

Culinary hotspot Puente Romano, Marbella, has unveiled a brand new authentic tapas area in its al fresco dining restaurant, Sea Grill, called Petit Sea Grill. Sea Grill is already famed for its varied culinary styles and fresh produce, but now Thomas Stork (Executive Chef at Puente Romano), and his team have introduced healthy, local Andalusian tapas dishes in a new stylish spot within the restaurant.

Thomas regularly visits Marbella’s food market to pick out the freshest ingredients, that are packed with seasonal Andalusian flavours. Through a concept of healthy cooking and Spanish gastronomic cultures, Thomas has created a sophisticated home-made tapas experience, which unites the traditions of tapas with innovative international dishes. As well as tapas dishes from the region, Petit Sea Grill will also have a fresh sushi and sashimi zone, which includes everything from abalone to snow crab and white prawns from Huelva.

In addition to the new healthy culinary alternatives, Thomas is offering guests a selection of exclusive international and local wines by the glass, thanks to the resort’s Coravin system. Puente Romano’s Sommelier, Carlos Garcia Ceballos, chose the wine list to give guests a wide selection of grape variety that all compliment the various tapas options. Guests will be able to enjoy some of the world's most coveted wines such as Pétrus, Pingus and Chablis Grand Cru, all by the glass.

Carlos will also be offering Mauro Godello - a very high-quality wine, with only 5,000 bottles produced each year. Highlights from Thomas Stork’s Petit Sea Grill summer menu includes a choice of five delicious local olive oils, with flavours including thai chile & fresh coriander and fresh basil & dried tomato. All five olive oils have been made locally, either in Córdoba or Jaén.

Other traditional local dishes on the menu include Aloe Vera ceviche – a healthy, vegan detox for the digestive system, Salmorejo – a dish from Córdoba, consisting of tomatoes from local organic farms in Andalusia, mixed with bread, oil and garlic, as well as Mojama – a traditionally Spanish delicacy of filleted salt-cured tuna, caught from the nearby fishing area of Cadiz.

All dishes at Petit Sea Grill are served in a relaxed, but stylish atmosphere, encouraging the sharing tapas concept. Guests can embrace the natural surroundings of the palm-fringed promenade, showcasing the impressive mountainous backdrop of La Concha. Sea Grill boasts breathtaking views of the beach and, if guests decide to dine inside, the floor to ceiling glass walls will allow everyone to enjoy their meal with unrestricted views of the seascape.

Petit Sea Grill is open every day from noon till midnight. Whilst staying at Puente Romano, guests can explore a myriad of other culinary options including the new Nobu Restaurant & Lounge Bar.

The resort caters to all diets with its extensive range of dining experiences, including gluten-free café, Celicioso, healthy, pool-side eatery Rachel’s and the newly-opened Lagom Café situated in the resort’s tennis club. Puente Romano, Marbella is situated on the Golden Mile, between Marbella and Puerto Bonus, just 45 minutes from Malaga airport.
