Fresh from opening Brasserie Boulud at Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk last October, world-renowned French chef Daniel Boulud has cast his net wide, looking to the Bahamas for his latest culinary outpost. Setting up home at Rosewood Baha Mar, on the gorgeous white sands of Nassau’s Cable Beach, the chef’s new Café Boulud The Bahamas offers guests a taste of France in the Caribbean.
Inspired by four of Boulud’s muses – La Tradition, La Saison, La Mer and Le Voyage – he presents a unique menu that hones in on the seasonality of local Caribbean ingredients, such as vegetables and seafood.
On the menu, alongside some of Boulud’s classic French dishes, there will be more curated options, such as citrus cured hamachi and grilled swordfish with cauliflower purée from La Mer; Maine lobster with heirloom tomatoes and crisp spring salad from La Saison; Beef tartare and Tournedos Rossini from La Tradition; and Colorado lamb loin and agnolotti with ricotta and spinach from Le Voyage.
The space itself is stunning – all elegant French vibes, combined with the warm hospitality of a neighbourhood café in a sophisticated Bahamian setting. Dark woods play out against blues and greens to reflect the beautiful coastline and tropical setting, with creams and bursts of colour infused through flower arrangements and art collections.
For those wishing to rest up after refuelling, the hotel’s 230 villas and suites explore the beauty of Bahamian seaside chic, fusing refinement and sophistication with timeless charm. The three-bed oceanside villa is the ultimate sanctuary, with its private plunge pool, while those seeking serenity, will find it in Sense, A Rosewood Spa.
