“1609 favourites such as the Golden Fried Shrimp with Wasabi Mayo, Fish Tacos and Florentine Flatbread are joined by delicious new offerings including Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Korean BBQ Ribeye Pork Chops, Key Lime Pie and a Ten Layer Chocolate & Caramel Gateau. Much of the restaurant’s seafood is sourced locally, brought in on the hotel’s docks by local fishermen, as part of the resort’s commitment to purchasing locally.

“Following the successful precedent set by Crown & Anchor, which reopened in May, tables will be a minimum of six feet apart with a maximum of ten diners to a table. Guests will need to wear a mask when on the property when not seated and each table will be equipped with a handy hook for guests to suspend their masks when not in use – an innovation which has proved extremely popular at Crown & Anchor.

“All team members at 1609, led by Bermudian Les Ruddock, have received training in advanced health and safety procedures for the protection and peace of mind of guests and team members.”
