The Baha Mar resort is opening the first-ever kosher restaurant in The Bahamas, Caribbean Journal has learned.
It’s called Cinko, and it will be an “Asian Latino” fusion eatery set to open under Dec. 20.
The restaurant will be under the kosher supervision of the Chabad of The Bahamas.
The menu will feature everything from chicken chorizo sausage to Wagyu ribeye and Korean-style Kalbi ribs, among others.
It’s the latest addition to what is one of the most impressive culinary offerings of any Caribbean hotel, from eateries by Daniel Boulud to Marcus Samuelsson.
“We look forward to expanding Baha Mar’s culinary portfolio by introducing Cinko Asian Latino Grill as the latest addition to our impressive restaurant offerings,” said Graeme Davis, President of Baha Mar. “As we continue to uphold our promise to provide the luxury of choice to all travelers, we are delighted to offer our kosher guests an exceptional dining concept with the same outstanding level of service and remarkable food options that have elevated the Baha Mar culinary experience and redefined the Caribbean vacation for contemporary travelers.”
The eatery will be set inside the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, open for dinner and in-room dining.
It will be open both to Baha mar guests and the general public.
“We are thrilled by this very exciting development for Baha Mar, as this is the first ever kosher restaurant in the Bahamas. The opening of Cinko Asian Latino Grill is great news both for the local community and for international visitors from around the world. As Rabbi of The Bahamas, we are proud to oversee its kosher certification and excited for the high standard of Kosher which the restaurant will uphold. We congratulate Baha Mar on this momentous endeavor and look forward to its success,” said Rabbi Sholom Bluming, Chabad of the Bahamas.
It’s the second kosher restaurant in the Caribbean opened in recent years by the Chabad religious organization, along with the popular Kosher Hot Spot in downtown Montego Bay, Jamaica.
