This month, La Concha ResortSan Juan’s premier beachfront lifestyle resort unveiled a highly anticipated dining concept, Tekka Bar: Handroll & Sake, nestled directly inside La Concha Resort’s main lobby. A welcome addition to San Juan’s gastronomic scene, this new guest offering captures the essence of the resort’s vibrant spirit and oceanfront locale, offering fresh seafood, an impressive sake collection and a unique dining experience. 

Introducing a unique approach to sushi with innovative handrolls, Tekka Bar, is the second outpost of the popular Las Vegas establishment located at the Cosmopolitan Hotel from restaurateur Takashi Segawa, also known for his creations, Monta Ramen, Kabuto and Sushi Mon. The menu features a lineup of fresh handrolls prepared counter-side, sashimi, and nigiri, each made with precision in the intimate 15-seat setting. Every roll prepared is intended to be enjoyed within 10 seconds of being made to ensure an explosion of flavors and textures – from the crunch of the nori to the warmth of the rice and the freshness of the protein, including yellowtail, blue crab, salmon and more. Rolls can be paired with two signature house made sauces, a citrus and spicy option, traditional soy and wasabi, and a beverage menu featuring Japanese beer and sake on tap, and nitro matcha green tea.  

Tekka Bar was created to seamlessly blend into La Concha Resort’s social lobby atmosphere, featuring modern-coastal design elements throughout the minimalistic narrative, designed by New York City-based design firm, Celano Design Studio. Nautical macrame rope accents, a white oak wood and ocean blue tiled countertop, and bold artwork by local artist, Angel Colon, define the concept while playful touches include shelves showcasing the outlet’s sakes lined with lucky manek-neko cat figurines, signature to the Tekka brand.

“It’s with great excitement for us to welcome a new vibrant restaurant concept with the opening of Tekka Bar and a soon-to-open spa to further offer our guests the best experience in San Juan,” said Mike Rivera, general manager of La Concha Resort. “As La Concha Resort celebrates its 65th anniversary, we’re thrilled to unveil just the beginning of our property-wide enhancements and we are eager to share additional announcements on the horizon as part of La Concha’s evolution.”
