“Bermuda is an inspiring place to open a restaurant,” says celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, who opened Marcus’ at the newly renovated Fairmont Hamilton Princess in May 2015. “The fresh local seafood, quality ingredients, and deep-rooted Bermudian culinary traditions all come together naturally to create a rich dining experience.” His is just one of a handful of island restaurants that have opened in anticipation of the America’s Cup, which will visit the island in June 2017. Marcus’ is among the best restaurants in Bermuda, featuring Caribbean-inspired soul food, craft cocktails, and top-notch service in a handsome harbor front location. Looking for other places to eat? Devil’s Isle Café is another new stunner in the City of Hamilton. It serves an extensive menu of small plates in a hip industrial space. For a special night out, don’t miss the Waterlot Inn—a high-end steakhouse inside a 1670s-era Bermuda cottage—but for a truly memorable night, make a reservation at Mickey’s Beach Bistro, where you’ll eat steaks, seafood, and pasta al fresco about 20 yards from the surf.
Not surprisingly, seafood is plentiful on Bermuda. Locally caught fish like wahoo, rockfish, mahi mahi, and snapper are prepared using traditional English cooking techniques. One local dish is called paw paw casserole, which is made of paw paw fruit, tomatoes, onions, beef, and cheese.
