(CMR) Over 30 restaurants and bars have already confirmed their participation in Cayman Islands Restaurant Month, which returns this October for its annual showcase and support of Cayman's culinary sector.
Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) said additional participants are expected to sign up for the culinary event ahead of the launch on Saturday, 1 October.
CITA’s Executive Director Jay Ehrhart expressed that the association is grateful to see Restaurant Month continue to bring together the sector and build upon Cayman’s position as the culinary capital of the Caribbean.
“I believe the food scene in the Cayman Islands is unmatched in the region, as we have some of the best restaurants, chefs and culinary teams in the Caribbean. With the number of Restaurant Month participants increasing each year, it’s a clear indication of the sector’s continued growth and success and CITA’s support through initiatives such as this not only strengthens the sector but helps to elevate its standards,” said Mr. Ehrhart.
“With the country’s travel and gathering requirements completely removed, we look forward to welcoming locals and new and returning visitors who have an appetite to experience the culinary excellence we offer in Cayman,” he added.
Throughout October, residents and visitors can expect a wide variety of local and international food and beverages from establishments across the island, providing lunch and dinner options with set three-course menus. Lunch offers range from CI$15 to $25 per person, and dinner offers range from $25 to $45 per person.
Mr. Ehrhart said this year’s participants have taken on the challenge to provide an array of menus demonstrating the quality of food and guest services in the Cayman Islands.
“Our participating restaurants are prepared to give Cayman a flavor-filled month with great dining experiences. Every restaurant will showcase Cayman’s high caliber of cuisine, talent and service, and I’m sure everyone who takes advantage of the special menus and offers will not be disappointed. Personally, I’m always inspired by what is prepared year after year,” he said.
Thanks to the participating restaurants, food lovers can also expect lots of opportunities to win vouchers for participating restaurants over the next few weeks through multiple competitions and giveaways.
