Baha Mar yesterday unveiled the first four signature restaurants for its planned culinary experiences.
Deuce, Katsuya, Brasserie des Arts and Shuang Ba will headline the $3.5 billion resort development’s 40-strong offering of restaurants, bars and clubs. They will be located at the heart of the resort, around the 100,000 square foot, Las Vegas-style Baha Mar Casino.
“The selection of these restaurants as our signature offerings is very simple; they are my favourite from around the world,” said Sarkis Izmirlian, Baha Mar’s chairman and chief executive.
“Baha Mar is about an authentic experience and our restaurants are no exception. Our guests can select from several options for dining - from high-end to more casual fare, Deuce, Katsuya, Brasserie des Arts and Shuang Ba will be centred around the most discerning guests’ needs.
“Whether delivering to players right at the casino high limit rooms, or offering private dining rooms within the restaurants themselves, our mission is to ensure superior dining, world-class service, and authentic Bahamian charm.”
The resort’s food and beverage selections are designed to complement its hotel brands – The Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Grand Hyatt and SLS LUX – as well as a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and ESPA spa.
Deuce takes its name for being only the second location of Bone’s, the award-winning Atlanta steakhouse. Bone’s is ranked by Zagat Survey as the leader in food and service of any steakhouse in America.
Deuce will feature more than 350 seats, and be the largest restaurant at Baha Mar. The restaurant will feature interior designs by the celebrated Johnson Studio, an Atlanta-based architecture and design firm noted for creating spaces that connect food to one-of-a-kind experiences.
Katsuya is a contemporary Asian restaurant that has been hailed for its innovative interpretations of classic Japanese cuisine and cocktails.
Known as a favourite of locals and celebrities alike in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, South Beach and Dubai, the 250-seat restaurant at Baha Mar will be home to Katsuya’s eighth location. It is a signature dining experience at SLS hotels.
Baha Mar will also host the fourth location of Brasserie des Arts, the restaurant and lounge that is also found in S�o Paulo, Brazil and two locations in France – Megeve and Saint Tropez - where it was voted one of the best places to eat by Elle magazine.
The 200-seat establishment will offer French cuisine created by classically trained French chefs.
Shuang Ba will take guests on a journey of classic and modern Chinese cuisine. Representing the figure 88, which signifies ‘double fortune’ in Chinese culture, Shuang Ba is designed to ensure good luck extends from its 88-seat restaurant to the casino floor.
