Bermuda Restaurant Weeks begins its fifth anniversary tomorrow with the largest enrolment of restaurants in the event’s history. Forty-five eateries will offer three-course meals at reduced prices to dazzle visitors with local cuisine and inspire locals to eat out.
Bermuda’s food culture will be at the core of Restaurant Weeks, running from January 14 to February 5, 2016.
“Bermuda authenticity is a signature in almost everything we do and the culinary community has fully embraced the idea,” said BTA Chief Product & Experiences Officer Pat Philip-Fairn. “This year 31 restaurants have taken on our challenge to provide Bermuda-inspired dishes in their Restaurants Weeks’ menus – that’s seven more than last year. This bodes well for the island’s food culture identity, which we can then market against to attract visitors, not unlike what you might see in Jamaica or Italy, New Orleans or Paris.”
The number of participating restaurants has grown since last year from 43 to 45. Those accepting the challenge to offer Bermuda-inspired dishes has grown from 24 to 31. Three-course menus are tiered in three price categories — $29, $39 or $49. Prices categories are unchanged.
Back this year is the People’s Choice Award, allowing diners to vote for the restaurant they feel best incorporates local food culture in their menus. Voting will take place online at table.bm. In 2015, Muse was the People’s Choice Award winner.
Muse Executive Chef Enworth Davis said: “The pride we acquired from the people – the people who were in the restaurant paying their money – was better advertising than we ever could have paid for. And for that we’re very grateful.”
New in 2016, mystery reviewers will explore restaurants and post their reviews on local foodie website Bite of Bermuda.
The public is encouraged to share their culinary experiences on social media using BermudaRW.
Mrs Philip-Fairn said: “In the world of travel, honest and unbiased reviews play a critical role in where travellers decide to spend their money. We hope to organically generate a healthy dose of content from Restaurant Weeks that will help our restaurant partners all year long.”
