After the success of New York City-based chef Marcus Samuelsson's two month pop-up restaurant which ran from June to August last year at the Hamilton Princess Hotel, plans are currently underway to construct a permanent restaurant on the property which will open in May of this year.  From the pictures we have seen of the work being done, it looks like the new restaurant will be amazing.

In the meantime, let's have a look back at the intimate 42-seat pop-up restaurant which also included an outdoor seating area with a bar, lounge and terrace.  The food was tasty and innovative as the menu chosen as a celebration of Bermuda's culture and history.  Although temporary, the space was thoughtfully decorated in an eclectic manner with nautical and industrial elements.  Old sails were re-purposed as wall coverings, vintage Bermuda travel posters were hung on the walls and maritime signal flags were referenced on cushion covers.   Local design company Urban Cottage helped to source some of the unique finishes found in the restaurant.
