The Cove Eleuthera, a Bahamas retreat, reopened on November 6, 2023, for its 2023 winter season. Featuring new programming and chefs at Freedom Restaurant & Sushi Bar, the resort now offers 29 upgraded villas and diverse dining options. With new flights, including Atlanta-Eleuthera Delta routes, reaching the destination is easier. Highlights include seahorse excursions and a transformed Freedom Restaurant with a fresh culinary vision. The resort also introduces a Bahamas Babymoon Package and unique festive programming for 2024 holidays.
New Culinary Vision – Freedom Restaurant & Sushi Bar, long regarded on the island for its sushi and Asian-inspired cuisine, welcomes Bryan and Louise English as Head Chef and Head Pastry Chef respectively. The husband-and-wife duo bring their talents from South Africa and will be responsible for leading the Food & Beverage team, revamping the restaurant’s menu and creating enhanced culinary experiences for guests and locals alike.
In addition to a fresh culinary perspective, Freedom Restaurant recently completed a transformation of its own. California-based BAR Architects & Interiors was tasked with re-envisioning the restaurant’s interiors, which marry The Cove’s natural surroundings with contemporary luxury and coastal sophistication. The restaurant features a warm-weathered teak palette and natural textures, accented with lush greenery to mimic the island’s limestone cliffs. Colors draw inspiration from the Caribbean islands, Atlantic Ocean and ripening Gregory Town pineapples.
An elegant bar area overlooking the hilltop pool and floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramic waterfront views. Designed to be the focal point, Freedom now features a central sushi bar anchored by a vibrant mural by Nassau native, Angelika Wallace-Whitfield. The team also collaborated with world renowned artist and author, Windy Chien, known for her woven knot installations, to design sculptural screens that create intimate seating arrangements for Freedom patrons. The forms of these installations represent the crashing waves along the beach, creating a sense of openness and offering guests privacy while they dine.
