Beachside bolthole Atlantis Paradise Island has announced a slew of new bar and restaurant launches just ahead of its 25th anniversary.

The destination resort in the Bahamas is bolstering its F&B offering with the addition of new venues for 2023, including Paranza, a love letter to Italy by Michelin-starred chef Michael White. Dishing up Italian regional cuisine with a passionate focus on seafood, Chef White will join chefs Nobu Matsuhisa (Nobu) and José Andrés (Fish) in establishing Atlantis as the only resort destination in the region with three Michelin star-rated chefs.

The resort is also getting its very own Shake Shack for 2023, with the New York-based brand set to touch down at Atlantis early next year. The venue will offer the brand’s signature made-to-order American classics, such as Angus beef burgers, crispy chicken, hand-spun milkshakes and house-made lemonades, alongside exclusives for the Bahamian location. 

Coming later in the year, beachside restaurant Frezca will highlight local seafood and global flavours, with a menu that runs the gamut from pressed juices and smoothies to avocado sourdough toast with Tajín and tomatoes, poached eggs, arugula and chimichurri sauce or lobster eggs benedict with butter poached lobster and citrus crème. Come midday, guests will be able to enjoy oysters and seafood towers, refreshing ‘Pot Cake’ poke bowls with ahi tuna, teriyaki chicken or grilled tofu alongside champagne and Bahamian cocktails. The Dilly Club, a cafe and cocktail bar and an offshoot of the locally loved Bon Vivants Bar & Café, will also open its doors in December.
