“The second phase of the project will be Mediterra, a new Mediterranean restaurant, in early October, replacing the Gastro Pub offering in the stunning Newport Room.

“In an effort to ensure a truly authentic experience, a team of four Fairmont Southampton employees embarked on a two-week culinary immersion through the Mediterranean region of Europe earlier this year.

“Two young Bermudian colleagues, second cook Nicole Clarke and server Ravone Butterfield, joined the resort’s Executive Chef and Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, to source innovative dishes in Spain, Italy and Monaco. Dishes will include shared plates of fresh seafood, paella, and more.

“The third and final phase will be the closing of Bacci at Turtle Hill Golf Club and opening of Boundary Sports Bar and Grille, an upscale American Sports Bar, in early November.

“The new venue will offer live TV broadcasting of major international sports events and is expected to become the new place-to-be in Bermuda’s West End. Bacci’s last day of operation will be Sunday, October 1st.

  3. CBA says:

    Thanks for the one-day notice for people staying here. You have all winter and choose to renovate end of August and right before labor day weekend??

  4. Not Impressed says:

    I get updating the Jasmine Lounge but the Gastro Pub is one of the best and of the most unique restaurants’ on the island. Highly unimpressed that they would remove an extremely popular restaurant to add another Mediterranean restaurant. As if Bermuda does not have enough of those already.

    • Meh. says:

      What other Mediterranean restaurants are there?

    • Love Gastro Pub says:

      I agree. I love the Gastro Pub.

    • James says:

      Gastro pub. A pub with no bar what is that all about? Most ridiculous idea ever.
      Plain boring room.

  5. Just saying says:

    I was just starting to like jasmine lounge

  6. Hang up and call again says:

    Bacci is a nice restaurant with good food in a great location – why on earth change it to an American sports bar that will be loud and unsightly? I think this is the wrong direction.

    Thanks to Fairmont for continuing to provide a well operated and attractive property. Bermuda is fortunate to have them …
