Katsuya Restaurant Opens at Baha Mar

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 17, 2017

The highly-anticipated Katsuya eatery has officially opened at the Baha Mar in Nassau.

The eatery is the product of a partnership between Chef Katsuya Uechi and globally renowned designer Philippe Starck.

Katsuya, which has 250 seats in its space just off the floor of the Baha Mar’s casino, is the first concept by hospitality firm sbe to open at Baha Mar.

Sbe is slated to open a 299-room SLS-branded hotel at the Baha Mar in the next year.

“Conceived by sbe, Katsuya was one of our first culinary concepts, and we’re extremely proud to be opening our tenth location,” said Sam Nazarian, Founder and CEO of sbe. This opening is a symbol of Katsuya’s evolution, longevity, and ability to remain relevant in a crowded, global scene. “From opening our first location in Los Angeles and expanding throughout the US, to opening internationally in the Middle East, and now, the Bahamas, Katsuya’s momentum is not slowing down. We credit our success to Chef Katsuya’s exceptional cuisine, energy on the restaurant floor, and, of course, Philippe’s visionary interior design.”

“We welcome master sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi’s and sbe’s award-winning modern Japanese restaurant to our extensive roster of global flavors at Baha Mar,” said Graeme Davis, President of Baha Mar.  “The addition of Katsuya, along with ten sbe restaurants and lounges, reinforces Baha Mar as a rich culinary destination in the heart of the Caribbean.  Chef Katsuya’s fresh take on Japanese cuisine, coupled with the world-class design of Philippe Starck, will bring a heightened, unparalleled luxury experience to our guests.”
