Graycliff Hotel and Restaurant, Nassau, Bahamas
If you like old world colonial charm, then this is the place for you. It is a hotel, restaurant, cigar factory, bar, and an all around place to be in Nassau for old world nostalgia. Pictured above are Allyn and me, with the owner of Graycliff and our gracious host, Enrico Garzaroli.
The food here is great, and served with a marvelous charm. Dinner feels like you are eating in the Governor’s private dining room, with all of the appropriate accouterments, including furnishings and proper service.
They even have an in-house cigar factory, and roll their own. Cigar fans claim are just right, but I wouldn’t know about that.
Depending on whom you listen to or what you read, they have a wine cellar that houses between 180,000 and 250,000 bottles. They have the third most valuable private wine collection in the world.
Our party of 13 consumed about six different wines, and each was delicious and quit reasonable. Pictured above, with me are famous poker players: Vanessa Rousso, and next to me Chad Brown; Michael Binger is next to him and then Binger’s brother.
JetSetWay tip: The wine list here is a book, but they will help you select one that pleases your pallet and accompanies your meal at a reasonable price.
