GRACE BAY CLUB UNVEILS ITS NEW POP-UP RESTAURANT CONCEPT, KONE
The Luxury Resort’s Successful Pop-Up Restaurant Series Continues with Savory and Sweet Bites Served in Cones
Grace Bay Club, the first five-star luxury hotel in Providenciales, today announced the opening of its new pop-up restaurant, Kone. Located directly on the award-winning Grace Bay Beach, named Top Beach by TripAdvisor in 2015, the latest culinary concept features a playful menu of contemporary dishes served in cones, complemented by an assortment of creative cocktails.
Kone is the fourth pop-up dining experience to arrive at Grace Bay Club. The limited-edition eatery follows the success of Biere et Boules in 2015 and the original Stix, which now operates as a permanent dining venue at Grace Bay Club’s sister property, West Bay Club.
Curated by Wolfgang von Wieser, Group Director of Food & Beverage for Grace Bay Resorts, the innovative menu offers a unique perspective on contemporary Caribbean cuisine and exciting combinations of fresh fish, local spices and comfort foods with a twist. Menu highlights include Turks & Caicos Lobster, Spicy Ahi Tuna Tartare with Juicy Pear, Avocado Chicken Salad with Peppered Ricotta and Prime Angus Beef with Polenta Fries. Guests with an insatiable sweet tooth can indulge in Valrhona Chocolate Mousse with Fresh Raspberries and Grand Marnier Rice Pudding with Candied Orange and Cinnamon Raisins. Additionally, Kone offers an exceptional selection of local and international beers, wines and cocktails, including Spiked Sangria, Tips Arnold Palmer, Provo Swizzle and Blueberry Lemonade.
“The dishes at Kone are designed to be simple to eat and simple to share, incorporating local flavors found throughout the island,” said von Wieser. “Of course, there’s also a bit of nostalgia in eating something out of a cone, and we are confident guests of all ages will appreciate the new concept.”
“Our guests want new experiences each time they visit, and Grace Bay Club’s pop up concept is just one way we create added value for visitors craving something fresh and exciting,” said Nikheel Advani, Principal and Chief Operating Officer of Grace Bay Resorts. “We are committed to offering our guests exceptional food and beverage, and the truth is, our team has a lot of fun coming up with the new concept each year.”
The restaurant space, which is updated each year to reflect the new concept, features refined décor and an open-air layout to take in the natural beauty of Grace Bay Beach. The bar is perfectly situated within a palm-tree-leaf thatched hut adjacent to a lounge area with oversized sofas, where guests can enjoy exceptional cuisine and cocktails, all while admiring magnificent ocean views.
