When it comes to vacations, reservations are one of my main priorities, after the beach of course. Going on vacation comes with the luxury of experiencing cuisine native to a particular area. This month, I am heading down to Grand Cayman for a couple of days, so obviously I had to research our restaurant options for dinner. Since it is just my husband and me, it wasn’t too hard to make reservations at some of the top restaurants http://www.camanabay.com/the-town/grand-cayman-restaurants/ in Grand Cayman.
Bombay Chopsticks is ranked number one of eight restaurants in the East End of Grand Cayman. This Asian fusion restaurant is known for mixing a combination of Chinese and Indian cuisine. Bamboo Chopstick’s is known for having the comfort of Chinese food with spices of India. My husband isn’t a huge fan of spicy food, but they assured me that the level of spice can vary.
Bombay Chopstick’s is a Chef Remy’s restaurant. Chef Remy was featured as one of the best chefs in the world in the first edition of The International Who’s Who. Chef Remy has been in the industry for 24 years all around the world, which definitely ensures both quality and creativity.
Upstairs Restaurant @ Kaibo
Upstairs Restaurant is located in the North Side of Grand Cayman for lunch, dinner, drinks and late night food. Upstairs Restaurant is located at Kaibo and is a mixture of both Caribbean cuisine and local ingredients. It is in a house-style venue, which overlooks the North Sound. Talk about a meal with a view.
The restaurant is known for Chef Laurence’s Michelin Star Standard and modern European techniques. http://www.caymangoodtaste.com/restaurants_detail.asp?restaurantID=233 Upstairs Restaurant is also known for its handpicked rum from around the Caribbean. Daniel Petts, the owner of Upstairs is known as the “rum connoisseur” of Grand Cayman. Nothing makes my husband happier than a glass of rum on vacation!
Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink
Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink is a neighborhood bistro. Its award-winning chef, Michael Schwartz, focuses on this farm-to-table restaurant, which ensures quality by using the most organic ingredients in every dish. In 2013, Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink was voted Cayman’s favorite restaurant at the Taste of Cayman Food & Wine Festival.
The bistro is known for its fresh and simple food, which features a new menu every season. The Sunday brunch menu, which also has a seasonal menu, is filled with small plates like salted popcorn meringues. The house made ricotta on the current brunch menu, come with heirloom tomatoes, Cayman sea salt and basil, sounds delicious. The grilled Nyman ranch leg of lamb, which comes with the Greek farro salad, feta and salsa verde also sounds amazing.
