Exclusive Culinary Experiences – All Year Long With the island’s top-rated dining destinations in its portfolio, Grace Bay Resorts is ringing in 30 with a dedicated culinary lineup worth traveling for.
The fêtes begin in June 2023 at Grace Bay Club’s oceanfront Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar with a pop-up featuring award-winning Texas sushi institution Uchi, helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef and one of the few American sushi masters, Chef Tyson Cole. From June 7-10, guests will enjoy exclusive access to a custom menu curated by the talented team at Uchi, featuring signature tastings, sushi and seasonal omakase. Topped only by the exceptional views of the destination’s famous turquoise waters, the premium non-traditional Japanese menu will be served at the Caribbean’s longest bar, stretching 90 feet toward the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Uchi will return for a second takeover at Infiniti from December 6-9, during which time an ultra-exclusive 10-course omakase dinner will be held at one of the brand’s lavish Private Villa Collection residences.
In October 2023, Grace Bay Resorts invites guests to attend its most over-the-top Caribbean Food & Wine Festival to date honoring 30 years of culinary excellence on the world’s most beautiful beach. A series of exclusive ticketed events will unfold throughout four days, including an extravagant 30th Anniversary Wine Dinner where guests will taste rare 1993 wines paired with premium 30-day aged meats. This year’s Caribbean Food & Wine Festival will be held October 13 – 16, 2023. For more information or for tickets, please visit http://www.caribbeanfoodandwinefestivaltci.com.
Finally, the brand’s own proprietary blend of Caribbean rum will take center stage with tastings of 30-year varieties paired with decadent morsels to complement their flavor profiles. The specialty rum flights are available all year long at Infiniti Bar for $193 in honor of the brand’s 1993 inception.
Grace Bay Gives Back
In partnership with Turks & Caicos Reef Fund (TCRF), Grace Bay Resorts is supporting a new coral installation in Coral Gardens, a snorkel site located within a protected reserve that is home to some of the island’s most diverse marine life. Beginning in 2023, guests can embark on eco-expeditions to the site while learning about coral ecology and protecting the third-largest reef in the world and one of the healthiest reef systems in the Caribbean.
For those who prefer to participate in ocean preservation by land, guests can order the new GB30 cocktail available throughout Grace Bay Resorts properties in 2023. 30 percent of proceeds from the cocktail will benefit TCRF, whose mission is to protect marine biodiversity in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
