Fish by José Andrés Opens in the Bahamas

April 2018

This April, the second location of Fish by José Andrés opens at the Atlantis Resort in The Bahamas at The Cove, Paradise Island. José's newest fine dining restaurant is open for dinner and offers resort guests and locals an amazing selection of responsibly-sourced seafood that pays creative homage to traditional Bahamian cuisine and the ocean that surrounds the islands.

José’s Fish menu reflects his commitment to sustainability as much as his culinary abilities, and serves to underscore The Cove’s commitment to flourishing Bahamian ecology and the protection of one of the nation’s most precious natural resources, the ocean. The menu highlights sustainable Bahamian fishing practices and includes a signature dish of simply prepared, fried local lionfish – a species that while delicious, has been severely damaging to the coral reefs of The Bahamas. A portion of the price of the dish will go directly to the Blue Project Foundation, the resort’s non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to saving marine species and their extraordinary habitats throughout The Bahamas.  

Other dishes on the menu include Scorched Conch, a traditional preparation of the iconic Bahamian seafood, and José's creative Conch Fritters, à la Spanish croquetas. The menu also features the team’s transformative take on other Bahamian favorites such as local Hog Snapper, grilled over a wood fire and served with a crisp endive salad, marcona almonds and radishes and Seared Scallops, with Hawaiian hearts of palm, tamarind, caperberries and citrus. Fish’s open ‘fire stage’ features two Josper ovens, whose high temperatures are harnessed by the chefs for dishes such as Grilled Oysters, their own fiery version of Jerk Chicken, and many of the menu’s vegetable dishes, all cooked to a smoky perfection.  The Josper also lends a delicate caramel char to the Grilled Pineapple dessert, served with tamarind and coconut sorbet. Or guests can enjoy Chocolate Paradise, featuring spiced chocolate cream, cocoa streusel, passionfruit caramel and meringue ice cream. 

“Anyone who knows me knows how much I love the ocean – whether it’s enjoying the freshest delicacies of the local waters or going diving," José says. "Fish tells the story of this beautiful, mysterious thing we call the sea, through food -- and my team and I are very excited to create this new experience at The Cove. Our Bahamian team is as committed as I am to supporting sustainable fishing practices and the protection of the Bahamian coral reefs.”
