New Restaurant “FryDays” To Open In Hamilton

April 13, 2016

[Updated] A new restaurant named FryDays is set to open in Hamilton, with the company saying they “will focus primarily on producing a creative concept with french fries,” and also plan to offer a “complementary menu for the consumer who wants a meal of convenience.”

Co-owner Mstira Weeks says that FryDays aim is to “provide our customers with a new and exciting way to enjoy eating fries. There will also be exciting breakfast waffles, specialty drinks and healthy options on the menu for those who prefer a healthier meal.”

Mrs. Weeks adds, “We intend on becoming the preferred option among consumers by providing superior customer service and great tasting food. We also intend on providing quality customer service to build a loyal customer base.”

The company said, “FryDays will attempt to revolutionize how fries are currently viewed in Bermuda. We will offer different types of fries with a variety of toppings.

“We will be encouraging customers to try new toppings and our french fry meals. We have a selection of homemade chips and will have homemade sherbert this summer. We are offering catering options for business meetings and parties of all occasions.”

Co-owner and Bermudian Head Chef Janelle Williams — who was recruited from The Piping Rock Restaurant in New York — says the goal of FryDays is to be an “extraordinary creative boutique restaurant.”

“In New York, I worked with Celebrity Chef Blake Verity, who starred on Iron Chef America, but I jumped at the opportunity to come home and join the FryDays team,” she said.

Ms. Williams says that breakfast will also be creative with different types of waffles and other items on the menu. Red velvet, chocolate and cinnamon/raisin waffles will be available for customers looking for a tasty breakfast.

“FryDays main attraction is the variety of fries and our unique toppings. Additional complimentary items such as wahoo fries, chicken fries, philly cheese steak, wahoo fish sandwiches and a hamburger special will also be available,” she added.

21-year old apprentice chef Dante Durham has also joined the new restaurant’s team.

FryDays management said they would like to “thank a few people who have made their idea become a reality, including Livingston Wedderburn, Pamela Quarterly and Chef Chiko Smokey Rub and our investor who all had an important role in the reality of FryDays.”

FryDays is hoping to open on Friday, April 15th and they will be located on the second floor of the Bermudiana Arcade in Hamilton.

Update 5.10pm: A spokesperson said, “FryDays was approved by the Health Dept to open on Friday, April 15, so we will definitely be opening on Friday, which was our aim.

“FryDays will open at 7.30am for breakfast on Friday, second floor, Bermudiana Arcade, Hamilton.”

  6. KBB says:

    Will you be offering any gluten free or low carb options? Sweet potato fries maybe or almond flour waffles without the sugar?

    • Verly says:

      Geesh, give me a break. They can’t cater to everybody’s special requests. You want all that stuff, maybe you’ll have to make it yourself.

      • sure. says:

        I think it would be a good additive for their restaurant being there aren’t too many places who cater to the needs of the above stated. Should be happy the question was asked…

    • Fascinated says:

      Lmao gluten free, low carb, no flour, no sugar. YOU people amuse me with all these sudden allergies you have. I wonder how people survived back in the day before you had tumblr and everyone suddenly become allergic to everything.

      Co-owner and Bermudian Head Chef Janelle Williams — who was recruited from The Piping Rock Restaurant in New York — says the goal of FryDays is to be an “extraordinary creative boutique restaurant.” Let the drama begin……she knows

      • Really? says:

        @ Rock Watcher, Haters gonna hate, and you sound like you a big one. Congrats Janelle, don’t watch the negative, you got this Cuz

      • Bay Girl says:

        @Rock Watcher sounds like you like a lot of drama to post that comment on something that is meant to be a positive initiative for Bermuda.

        Sounds like she knows what she wants to do and gave up working in New York to pursue her dreams and live her life to the best of her ability. Why don’t you do the same and stop being a negative dream killer!

        Congrats ladies and I will you all the best. Maybe you can branch out to the east side of the island once your business is booming!!!

  18. Terry says:

    And all the ‘Hippo-crite’ people will still be at KFC blocking the road and spending $100+……………………
    IGU

  19. Navin Pooty Tang Johnson says:

    All over this. I will have a cheesesteak and fries please

  20. lucky 7 says:

    This will also be great for the cruise ship guests who need a “snack” to satisfy them until dinner, which only satisfies them until the midnight buffet…..

  21. Nanoo says:

    All important question for fry lovers: will you serve poutine

    • Merv says:

      This is the only question that every Canadian in Bermuda should be asking…..I’m one of them. :-)

  22. Seriously?? says:

    More unhealthy food. Ugh. We wonder why our healthcare costs are skyrocketing!

    • No Panic says:

      Everyone has a choice.

    • Fascinated says:

      I was going to say I’m surprised no one has complained yet. I bet you drink though. Put some strawberries on your waffle. That helps.

    • Bay Girl says:

      no one said you had to eat it. By the way do you know what is being served on the menu to know that there are no healthy options????

  23. Bermygurl says:

    OMG…i could say ill stay away and stay training..but ill just come and train harder…CONGRATS….all the best…
