The ChefBorn and raised in Lima, Peru, Teddy Bouroncle has been sharing his heartfelt recipes around the world for over two decades. His passion for cooking was ignited by his grandmother and grandfather, the two cooks responsible for gathering the family around the dinner table to enjoy home-cooked meals every Sunday evening. As a young boy, Teddy would hang out in the kitchen and watch as his grandparents reimagined traditional Peruvian dishes. At 16, he shared his plans with his own parents. “I am going to become an actor or a chef”, Teddy proclaimed. His mother and father, who both worked in government institutions, said: “You will starve as an actor!” At that very moment it was settled, “But not as a chef!” Teddy replied with a smirk.
Home of the Culinary Explorers
As soon as you enter our dining room you are greeted by a star, swaying elegantly in the middle of the room, embracing its purpose as the glowing centerpiece. Growing up in Lima, Chef Teddy’s mother would always remind him of a special star, one that shines brighter than all, illuminating the way home.
Polaris, the North Star, is our way of saying welcome home to you, our culinary explorers. The warm décor invites you to roam and find the perfect spot where you feel most comfortable. Our open kitchen is meant for family and friends to gather around, so feel free to grab front row seats to fresh quality ingredients fused into unexpected compositions.
Lima Meets Oranjestad
The gentle trade winds and fresh aroma of the ocean experienced on our outdoor patio are reminiscent of Lima, Peru’s capital city, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Here in Oranjestad, Aruba’s capital city, the vibrant downtown scene intertwines with the peaceful ocean-front views, making it a memorable night on the town. Experience the best of both worlds, where Lima meets Oranjestad and fine dining comes home.Dinner Menu
