No trip to Atlantis is ever complete without a massive plate of calamari at Carmine’s or the wagyu from Nobu. But with so many restaurants and dining options to choose from, it’s difficult to squeeze every meal into one trip, especially if you’re traveling on a budget. Guests visiting the Paradise Island resort between September 30 and October 12, however, will have a better opportunity to check their favorite meals off their list, thanks to the second annual EAT: Extraordinary Taste @ Atlantis showcase.
This two-week culinary event allows 16 restaurants at and around the resort to flaunt their best and newest menu items, with guests taking advantage of special prices to experience everything from casual fare to fine dining. The three- and four-course meal options run between $39 and $79 and will be specially curated for this year’s showcase.
Gourmet options will be available at Nobu, Fish by José Andrés, Seafire and Café Martinique, the Atlantis’ newest fine-dining experience. Signature dishes will be served at the Bahamian Club, Casa D’Angelo and Todd English’s Olives, as well as Café Martinique. Casual plates can be found at Carmine’s and Virgil’s BBQ, both of which typically cater to bigger groups and even bigger appetites, and quick serve options are also available throughout the Marina Village. Brunch and buffet specials will also be available at locations like Poseidon’s and Mosaic, among others.
While part of the goal of EAT is to put a spotlight on the efforts made by the resort’s restaurants’ staffs to use creativity and culinary talents to enhance their dining experiences, the event also benefits the Bahamian nonprofit organization Hands for Hunger. A portion of each meal’s proceeds will go the agency, which was launched by local students in 2008 with the vision of cutting down on food waste (including at hotels) and ensuring that everyone has access to three meals a day.
