Nassau / Paradise Island Fall 2011 - Any new dining spots? Other questions and. . . what about food/wine shopping?

Breadcrumbs | Sep 5, 201104:47 AM

It's been about a year since our last visit to New Providence and thanks to some posts here I've already bookmarked Chef Chea Corner Bistro and Wine Lounge which will both be "new to us".

We rent a condo on PI and have been travelling to this area for years now. I was wondering whether there have been any new spots opening since our last visit? We tend to prefer casual dining and some of our "regular haunts" are: Cafe Matisse, Columbus Tavern (though quality has been inconsistent there's been more good than meh) and the Green Parrot on the PI side.

Last time we passed a restaurant called "circa 1890" and I was wondering whether anyone has tried it?

Also, a friend recommended Van Breugel's. . . has anyone been there?

If anyone remembers Zio Gigi's, I'd love to hear if anyone is preparing similar quality pizzas these days? Such a shame to lose this gem.

En route from the airport we stop at Caves Village to pick up some wine at Butler & Sands and, some breads, cheeses and cold cuts etc at Gourmet Village. Last time we noticed a pizza place there but I don't see it on the CV website. . . did this close down already?

Other questions are:

We also purchase wine at the Liquor shop at Harbour Bay . . . any other recommendations?

We discovered Balduccino's for meats, baked goods and gourmet ingredients in our recent visits. Any other gourmet shops, bakeries we should know about?

Does anyone have experience ordering groceries from Or should we stick w City Market for our staples?

I've heard good things about Beach Club Cafe. Is it good enough to warrant return cab fare from PI?

For fresh fish we've been going to Montague Point where the prices have been terrific as the locals seem to shop there. Any other suggestions (we do prefer this to Potter's Cay)?

Thanks in advance, I'll be happy to report back when we return (in October).
