At a recent invitation-only event sponsored by Bahama Breeze Island Grill, I was impressed anew by the quality food, beverages and service at this relaxed, Caribbean-themed eatery. Confession time: it’s probably been a good five years or more since I’ve visited Bahama Breeze. Let’s just say I’m glad I had the opportunity to get reacquainted with the restaurant.
More than a few guests enjoyed the new “Legendary Island
Cocktails” that were served. Selections included the rum-infused “Painkiller”
comprising pineapple and orange juices with cream of coconut and nutmeg and “Parrot
Passion,” which featured passion and orange juices along with Cointreau and
Bacardi Limon. Six other intriguing concoctions are available.
When it came to cuisine, we noshed on a variety of flavorsome
starters. Standouts were coconut shrimp, chicken quesadillas and classic
cheeseburger sliders. Also noteworthy was the slow-roasted pulled pork, which
was as good as any I’ve had in the Triangle.
No passport is required to explore Bahama Breeze. Just bring
a good appetite and a laid-back sense of adventure.
