Creative Cuisine At Tommy Bahamas

The restaurant steps out of the box for Restaurant Week.

I am a boring restaurant goer if you get right down to it. I go to the same places all the time once I love them and order my favorite dishes off the menu again and again refusing to venture off onto anything new. But this week I was happy to learn that I would be forced to veer off my usual course with exotic $36 offering.

This was the menu:

Your Choice of Appetizer
(Of course I never order anything but the coconut shrimp or goat cheese and cracker plate.)

Blood Orange Ceviche
Scallop, White Fish, Salsa Fresca

What a strange and interesting way to eat a Mexican favorite that is usually served with shrimp, crab and other ordinary fish bits. Scallops? A textural delight.

Carpaccio "Roll"
With the accentuation of baby Arugula and Black Truffle Vinaigrette, this is refreshing, peppery and rich.

Heirloom Tomato Salad
House Smoked Scallop, Vincotto, Amaranth

Choice of Entree

Bavette Steak
Stuffed Crispy Hearts of Palm, Citrus Demi, Mesclun and Citrus Vinaigrette

Bacon Dashi, Hoisin, Baby Bok Choy

Tandoori Chicken
Curry Slaw, Mango Chutney, and House Made Naan Bread

Fresh Berry, Wild Thyme Compote

Malted Chocolate Pie
Oreo Crust, Heath Toffee Crumbles

Pina Colada Cake
Pineapple, Myers Dark Rum, White Chocolate Mousse

I also heard while I was there that they are planning on revamping some menu options soon and going towards a more regional, change it up flavor, albeit keeping their tried and true goodies that people love.

If you haven't dined out yet this week for Restaurant Week, there are still three days left.
