Named for the fateful year in which Bermuda’s first settlers crashed upon St. George’s shores, this seasonally-open restaurant at the Hamilton Princess Hotel couldn’t possibly be closer to the water. In fact, the handsome dining room, with its modern glass walls and giant retractable windows, is perched over Hamilton Harbour, giving its diners the distinct feeling that they’re eating aboard a ship. 1609 offers an all-day-and-night menu of light bites, including fresh salads and flatbread pizza, plus a handful of specialties from sea and land (like a classic lobster roll—the only one of its kind served in Bermuda). Come just for drinks? Order up a pitcher of red or white wine sangria or even better, the 1609 mojo on tap, made with Goslings light rum, mint, fresh lime and passionfruit juice.
