Marcus Restaurant To Open At Hamilton Princess

March 29, 2015

The Hamilton Princess today announced that their new signature restaurant to be managed by acclaimed chef Marcus Samuelsson will be named Marcus’.

Marcus’ is set to open at the hotel on May 27 and will include some dishes that were featured in last summer’s pop-up restaurant, Samuelsson at HP.

Marcus’ will offer a vibrant menu hand crafted by Chef Samuelsson to include his signature globally-influenced cuisine, while highlighting local ingredients and flavors. The menu will be executed by Executive Chef Leo Marino, from Samuelsson at HP and Samuelsson’s acclaimed Red Rooster Harlem in New York City.

“I am excited to launch Marcus’ at The Hamilton Princess. Last summer’s pop-up restaurant was well received among both locals and tourists,” says Marcus Samuelsson. “The Island is an inspiring place to open a restaurant.

“The fresh, local seafood, quality ingredients and deep-rooted Bermudian culinary traditions all come together naturally to create a rich dining experience. To top it off, the views of the harbour from the new restaurant are spectacular.”

“All Marcus Samuelsson Group restaurants strive to maintain a local authenticity within the community,” explains Nils Noren, vice president of restaurant operations at the Marcus Samuelsson Group.

“When we opened Samuelsson at HP last summer, our culinary staff included students from Bermuda College. The local staff contributed a great deal to the success of the pop up restaurant and we look forward to working with local talent again at Marcus’.”

    Quite refreshing to see an African brother running a successful operation in Bermuda. Also happy to see the Green family having the courage to bring his type of quality to these shores. Hotel is shaping up well! Next step is for Hamilton Princess to promote from a long line of successful Bermudian hoteliers to the post of general manager. Elbow Beach, Coco Reef and Southampton Princess soon to follow?

      What does his country of origin have to do with it? As a foodie, I can attest that Marcus’s expertise is well-known. He is an excellent chef, by any measure. It does not take “courage” on the Greens’ part to recognize that somebody has skill. I live in New York, and it is hard to get a table at his restaurant in Harlem (which I highly recommend). I cannot wait for his new restaurant to open in Bermuda. I don’t think Bermuda has ever courted a chef of his international caliber. The Cayman Islands has Eric Ripert at the Ritz-Carlton. Marcus is not Eric Ripert (yet), but he’s not too far behind, and he has time on his side.
