The Sushi Bar at Resorts World Bimini, The Bahamas

Situated on a beachfront complex in The Bahamas, the expansive Resorts World Bimini is surrounded by the crystal waters of the Caribbean Sea — which means fresh seafood. The hotel’s Sushi Bar offers a variety of nigiri, sushi rolls and more. Guests who dine at the restaurant are in for a treat as Top Chef’s season three winner Hung Huynh curated the menu. Huynh has an impressive resume: In addition to winning Top Chef, he served as executive chef at worldwide restaurant CATCH; is the culinary consultant for Resorts World Bimini’s Sushi Bar; and also owns a couple other Asian restaurants around the country.

 

Dirty Rascal at Thompson Buckhead, Atlanta

Although the brand-new Thompson Atlanta isn’t open yet, the restaurant Dirty Rascal is one to look out for. Atlanta chef Todd Ginsberg and Rye Restaurants curated the Italian-American restaurant. The vibe consists of an old-school New York feel, featuring dim lighting, oversized booths and an atmosphere perfect for any occasion. The restaurant’s name plays homage to the chef’s childhood, when his mother would lovingly call him “dirty rascal.” The menu includes Italian classics such as fresh-made in-house pasta, veal parmigiana, king crab scampi and osso Bucco.

 

Brass Boer at Delfins Beach Resort, Bonaire

Surrounded by turquoise waters, Delfins Beach Resort is an ideal getaway. From relaxing by the pool to learning how to scuba dive, the possibilities are endless. Foodies should check out the property’s al fresco restaurant Brass Boer. Jonnie Boer, the owner, is a renowned Michelin-starred chef, and the food will send your taste buds on a trip. The trendy new restaurant serves delicious dishes with fresh, local produce, alongside stunning seaside views. Jonnie is known to make an appearance from time to time, so don’t be surprised if he takes a seat at your table.

 

W Punta de Mita, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico

W Punta de Mita is a foodie’s paradise, with dishes ranging from traditional Mexican plates and coastal-inspired seafood spreads by Jean Georges, a Michelin-starred chef. Jean Georges took inspiration from his travels and eating his way through the food stalls and night markets in Southeast Asia for the restaurant’s menu. Guests can enjoy the delicious dishes with oceanfront outdoor seating and glittering twinkle lights.

 

Hyatt Centric Las Olas, Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale’s newest skyscraper is home to Harborwood Urban Kitchen & Bar, as well as a guestroom turned speakeasy called 901.
