Bermuda Restaurant Weeks has gotten me way busy. On Monday, we went to the eastern end of the island to try the Griffin’s menu at the St. George’s Club.
If you’re a long time friend, fan or follower of biteofbermuda.com, then you’ll know that we’ve determined that there’s just something special about Rosas. From being the winners of the Fish Sandwich Competition to creating unique menus for special occasions, this casual ‘Mexican’ eatery has proven time and time again that they’re always willing to join the fun, flex their creative muscles in the kitchen and push your tastebuds and dining experience to the limit.
Happy 2017 friends!!! It's that much happier because when the New Year rolls around, that means it's time for the Bermuda Tourism Authority's 6th annual Bermuda Restaurant Weeks ( January 12th and February 3rd). Along with the popular Bermuda Inspired menus, the People's Choice Award where you can vote for your favourites, and the opportunity to win a free meal by posting to social media, this year's event has something new in store.
When friends get together for after work drinks, and the conversation goes on (and on), what tends to happen next is someone says, “we should order dinner”. Sometimes, with more talking than eating planned, the regular appetizer/ dinner/dessert combination can be a bit much, resulting in multiple takeout bags. So on this occasion we were strategic about our dining choices. After an exceptionally long workday, the ladies headed to TEN Café & Bar for a glass of wine and tapas.
It’s kind of hard to believe, but it has been ONE full year since we started our journey as Team Bite of Bermuda, sharing some of the amazing food from eateries around the island. And what a year it has been! To tell a tiny bit of the tale of how we came to be; three food loving friends had some truly enviable times (over some great meals of course) and the more we ate together, the more we wanted to share the Bermuda food story. For more than a year we excitedly went back and forth discussing the premise of biteofbermuda.com and at the end of May 2015 we pressed ‘Post’ for the first time…and haven’t looked back since.
Hola amigos hoy es de 10 de mayo. (Translation, Hello friends, today is May 10th). And that means just a few days ago was Cinco de Mayo, which for many is a great reason to get in touch with their inner Mexican food (and drink) loving selves. And. Well. Who are we to buck tradition and refuse an excuse to sample a little something south of the border, on the eastern end of Front St? Plus as luck and good timing would have it, May 5th also marked the FIRST day that the newly renovated porch at Rosa's would be opening. Win! Win!
You know how some days you want to grab a quick bite, but you’re not looking for anything fancy? Just something good, possibly healthy and not at all pretentious. That was pretty much the vibe the other day when one of us popped by a local institution – The Paraquet Restaurant.
