Housed in a 1670's-era Bermuda cottage, where merchant sailorsonce unloaded their cargo into the basement, the Waterlot Inn isnow Bermuda's premier steakhouse. Situated on picturesque Jew's Bayin Southampton, the high-end restaurant no longer requires that gentlemen wear jackets, but men might want to don one anyway, as its white tabledclothed dining room, complete with tall Windsor chairs, nautical oil paintings, and exposed dark wood flickered with candlelight, is awash in five-star formality. Choose from an impeccably executed menu of steakhouse classics such as oysters Rockefeller, seared foie gras, and escargot; on- and off-the-bonecuts of USDA Angus beef, including an imperial American Wagy u strip loin or a 20-ounce porterhouse; and not-to-be-missed desserts such as the bananas foster flambé for two, prepared tableside with brown sugar, dark rum, and vanilla ice cream. Not into steak? Then choose from Bermuda cedar plank salmon, jumbo scallops, or seared yellowfin tuna. When you're done with dinner, have a drink or a cigar at The Dock, the Waterlot's newly opened waterside outdoor cocktail lounge that also serves small plates.
