The Ocean Club debuted its newest pop-up restaurant earlier this month as an expansion of the resort’s main restaurant, Dune.
Spice by JG was created by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten for the Four Seasons resort-managed property.
“Assuming culinary control of the Ocean Club’s Versailles Terrace, Spice by JG takes advantage of the open-air atmosphere while overlooking the resort’s legendary terraced gardens and statues,” a release from the property states.
“While this is Jean-Georges’ first free-form version of a menu that appeared similarly at his former restaurant Spice Market in New York City, it is not his first foray with the Ocean Club. The resort’s main restaurant, Dune, also assumes his moniker.”
The restaurant will only be available for a limited time this spring, until April 21 for lunch and dinner.
The menu highlights the chef’s favorite street food flavors from his time spent in Southeast Asia, infused with Bahamian signature ingredients.
Some of his favorite dishes from the Asian infusion menu include black pepper shrimp with sun-dried pineapple; charred chili-rubbed rib eye skewers with Thai basil dipping sauce; shaved tuna with chili tapioca, tropical fruits and coconut-lime infusion; red snapper with wok-fried napa cabbage, jicama and cucumber; char-grilled chicken with kumquat lemongrass dressing and grilled New York strip steak with garlic coriander and sesame.
“I am very excited for the Spice by JG pop-up at the Ocean Club by Four Seasons. I invite you to try it all; the menu has been carefully curated to provide you with a unique taste of my favorite dishes and flavors from Southeast Asia,” Jean-Georges Vongerichten said in the release.
The restaurant is open to resort guests as well as members of the public except on the dates of March 25 and 26; and April 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 15 and 16.
