Chef Antwan joins Hamilton Princess to run new Intrepid restaurant
A new restaurant has opened at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, replacing Marcus’ Bermuda, which closed in January.
The hotel describes the venue, called Intrepid, as “upscale”, specialising in steak and seafood, and containing a sushi station and raw bar.
The name for the new restaurant was taken from the code name of spy Sir William Stephenson who headed the censorship station based at the Hamilton Princess during the Second World War.
Antwan Ellis, executive chef de cuisine of the restaurant, said: “The new restaurant is an amazing space with stunning views of the water and incredible artwork on its walls – I look forward to sharing a menu with our diners to create a complete feast for the senses.“
Chef Antwan has joined the hotel from Shula’s Steakhouse in Orlando, Florida – at Dolphin Resort – where he was executive chef for the restaurant.
Before that he was Chef de Cuisine at the resort’s Todd English’s Bluezoo Restaurant, where he had worked his way up after ten years with Walt Disney World hospitality.
“The people have been incredibly warm and welcoming, and I look forward to becoming a part of the local community,” he added.
Tim Morrison, general manager at the hotel, said: “This restaurant offers fine dining on a new level in Bermuda, in luxurious and glamorous surroundings which pay tribute to the rich history of the hotel.”
