  • Night Brunch at St. Regis

    Brunch is a staple in Bermuda culture. Every Sunday, friends and family dress up and head to their favourite establishment to enjoy brunch, whether it’s a classic buffet, family style or even a la carte. Brunch is a ritual here.  So what happens when a restaurant offers a night brunch concept on a Friday evening? It sells out in a matter of days.  On Friday night, I had the pleasure…

  • Taste of Bermuda Recap

    Food lovers in Bermuda were in for a treat over the weekend as the City of Hamilton hosted Taste of Bermuda with three different events.  The three-day event kicked off on Friday evening with the Set The Bar: Cocktail Competition at the Bacardi HQ. When I arrived, I was given two drink tickets to enjoy myself during the two-hour event. There were also going to be samples of the five…

  • Rum Swizzle Taste Test: Part Two

    We are back with our Rum Swizzle Taste Test part two! Just to refresh your memory, Bermudians love to drink and Rum Swizzle is the most popular cocktail on the island. Everyone has their own special recipe and usually, the recipe isn’t shared.  Rum Swizzle is basically a rum punch, but everyone makes it their own special way. I don’t make it anymore (too many ingredients), but I do like…

  • Intrepid at Hamilton Princess

    With the culinary scene being as small as it is in Bermuda, it’s always exciting when a new restaurant opens. And when that restaurant is high end with incredible food and service, it’s exhilarating.  Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the new restaurant at Hamilton Princess, Intrepid. I was a huge fan of Marcus’ over the years so was disappointed when that closed.  But, once I heard…

  • Rum Swizzle Taste Test: Part One

    If you know anything about Bermuda, you must know that Bermudians like to drink a lot. And it seems like more so in the summertime. Of course, there are many different kinds of drinks but two reign supreme – Dark & Stormy’s and Rum Swizzle. I don’t drink the former but the latter, I can get down with.  Rum Swizzle is basically a rum punch, but everyone makes it their…

  • Master Chef Tiffany Derry at The Loren

    Anytime a celebrity chef comes to Bermuda, I have to find my way there. Why?! Because I know the food is going to be top notch and the experience will be incredible. But also because I love all things food and meeting awesome chefs is always a vibe.  Last weekend, I was invited to attend a dinner at Maree at The Loren featuring Chef Tiffany Derry from Texas. Chef Tiffany…

  • Five Bottles of Rosé to Enjoy This Summer

    With taglines such as “Yes Way Rosé´” and “Rose´ All Day” and big companies launching wildly successful marketing campaigns to push their pink wine, it’s not surprising how popular rose´ is. But maybe you’ve never gotten into it, or you feel weird drinking pink wine. Perhaps this summer is the best time to give it a try? As a rose´, connoisseur, I can easily go on and on about my…

    A gorgeous restaurant next to a marina, incredible food, fabulous drinks and a beautiful sunset. That’s exactly what you get when you dine in 1609 at the exquisite Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.  Yes folks, 1609 has reopened for the season with a brand new menu featuring elevated Mexican cuisine and plenty of tequila/mezcal drinks to match. Think open air restaurant + fresh guac + smokey drinks. Basically, my idea…
