Sorcé’s namesake is an major archaeological site on the south side of Vieques near the town of Esperanza. Ceramics that have been unearthed have been traced to La Hueca, a culture that flourished on the island 1,500 to 2,000 years ago. The ceramic influences range from elsewhere in the Caribbean to Venezuela, implying that Sorcé could have been a major port.
This unique history of blending materials and cultures influences the menu of Sorcé, pulling together tastes passed down through generations of Viequense and created with locally sourced, in-season ingredients. Signature dishes include fresh-caught fish marinated in a local mojo recipe; Puerto Rican mofongo; stuffed Caribbean lobster; whole coli rubia; churrasco with garlic, brujo oregano herb; and sopa de marisco, a Viequense version of bouillabaisse. Sample a glass from our extensive wine cellar, stocked with premium bottles from around the world. North and South American vineyards are well represented, and complimented with an expert list of signature cocktails and specialty rum flights.
