The intelligent, modernly eclectic and seasonal menu designed by Co-Founder and Chef Tim Tibbitts features sea-to-table fare made with locally sourced ingredients that are available in abundance. The seasonally-inspired cuisine is accompanied by exclusive wines and handcrafted cocktails that are carefully selected by Co-Founder Rebecca Tibbitts, the only certified female sommelier in the Bahamas.
