  • Where to get THE BEST food in Senegal

    I recently returned home from an eight-day vacation in Senegal, West Africa. I booked this trip last April with a travel company who promotes group trips. I didn’t know anyone on the trip but left with lifelong friends.  One of the main reasons I decided to book Senegal was because of the food. I knew there would be a ton of fresh, local seafood and the fact that jollof rice…

  • Where to enjoy the best Thanksgiving Dinner in Bermuda

    Thanksgiving is right around the corner (where has the year gone?!) and while it’s not a holiday in Bermuda, I like to pretend it is. I usually cook dinner for my family or sometimes we dine out. Last year, I got takeout and I didn’t love it at all. This year, my dinner with absolutely be gourmet and fabulous! If you’re in Bermuda and you want to enjoy turkey day…

  • Where to get the BEST Brunch in Bermuda

    Brunch is a staple in the Bermudian culture, as I shared last week. And I feel like every week, someone is asking where to go for brunch. I guarantee I’ll get on Facebook tomorrow and someone will be asking about brunch.  But here’s the thing – not all brunches are created equal so it’s very difficult to recommend brunch without knowing preferences. There are buffets, a la carte, set menus,…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Celebrity Chef Chauhan At The Loren

    Over the weekend, I got invited to a very special dinner curated by a celebrity chef in a gorgeous location. The chef was Maneet Chauhan, an award-winning chef, media personality, author, and judge of Food Network’s popular completion show Chopped. And the venue, The Disk at The Loren for the summer guest chef series. The menu was a 4th of July Indian street food barbecue, something I’ve had yet to…

  • Amazing Cocktails + Dinner at 1609 @ Hamilton Princess

    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…

  • Restaurant Weeks 2022 Review: BLT Steak NY

    Excellent service, incredible food and an amazing vibe sum up my last stop for Restaurant Weeks. I decided to save my last review for a place I hadn’t enjoyed yet – BLT Steak NY at St. Regis. The menu was simple but well executed. My friend and I arrived and grabbed a drink upstairs at the bar before heading down for dinner. When we arrived, we were quickly escorted to our…

  • Restaurant Weeks 2022 Review: Aurora

    For one of my final stops for Restaurant Weeks, I decided to head to Aurora. I hadn’t been since last year and the menu looked amazing. If you enjoy lots of seafood, this is definitely a menu you’ll want to sample. After ordering drinks, I couldn’t decide on what to eat so I had to ask my server to assist. I’m so glad I took his advice. For my appetizer, he…
