Bermuda - 40th Birthday Dinner Blowout Suggestion Needed (and golf too)

dagmar | May 5, 2009 11:16 AM

Hello Fellow Native and "wanna-be" Onions ,

Wife and I are staying at SH Princess, having successfully obtained a room during their 99-hour sale (we would normally stay at EB, but for 1/3 the price we'll suffer at the Fairmont ;-)

Saturday the 16th is my 40th B-day and the wife has tasked me with securing a reservation.
We've eaten at Waterlot, Tom Moore's, and most of the places in Hamilton including Harborfront (very cool location).
Since it's been two years since my most-recent (of probably 15) visits, I'm sure there are choices I'm overlooking.

Based on the volume of posts Bermuda has been getting on Chowhound, I've been able to narrow it down. I'm tempted for Waterlot or Tom Moore's, reliable and I know what I'm in for. Newport Room is closed.

Birthday Night 5/16
Port O'Call
Bistro J
Is the Saturday Night buffet at Reef's worthy of a birthday blowout?

Other options pulled from Chow:
Beau Rivage (from what I read, best for a long afternoon lunch?)

We have to eat four other nights, so some less-expensive, local, home-grown options are also appreciated. I prefer going local when travelling... think "where would you take Anthony Bordain?

Finally.... If someone can suggest a way to get me on Mid-Ocean as a "local" with a member, it's the one course I haven't played other than Port Royal (which I understand is closed) and am reluctant to pay $200+. Otherwise I'll probably wind up at Riddell Bay due to their deals through Fairmont. I shoot in the 80s despite my handicap of seven.

Thanks and I'm already drooling over the gin & tonics and dark & stormys (depending on sunny or cloudy - god forbid! - weather)

Thanks in advance !
