World-renowned Chef Jose Andres has expanded his Caribbean footprint.

The Spanish chef has debuted his new Fish by Jose Andres at The Cove resort at Atlantis Paradise Island.

The new dinner-only eatery serves a menu focusing on Bahamian seafood, including local lionfish.

“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,” Andres said. “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.”

The restaurant will serve everything from local hog snapper to its own version of jerk chicken, with an open concept including a “fire stage” consisting of two Josper ovens.

The eatery, designed by Spanish firm Capella Garcia, aims to give the impression of being in an underwater world.

“The inclusion of Chef Andrés’ craftsmanship at The Cove provides an impactful opportunity to showcase the exceptional elements of The Bahamas,” says Audrey Oswell, President and Managing Director of Atlantis, Paradise Island. “We are incredibly proud that we have been able to create locally-infused, ocean-linked dining experiences for our guests, in partnership with visionaries like Chef Andrés, who is not only one of the most talented Master Chefs in the world, but also an advocate for the protection and preservation of our country’s natural resources.”

Andres first entered the Caribbean market with his Mi Casa by Jose Andres at the Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Puerto Rico.
