This fine dining restaurant opened just before New Years 2014 in a converted Bahamanian home on a lush property a ten-minute taxi ride west of Cable Beach. A steel drum band sets the mood in the Kamalame Bar for hors d’oeuvres, and there are several elegant rooms brightened with modern art, and outdoor cabana tables for two under the stars. There is also a cigar bar and gardens of subtropical wetlands to stroll before or after your meal. 
 
Menus change with the seasons, and include classic Italian (gnocchi with sausage in a green onion sauce) and French (chateaubriand) dishes along with fusion cuisine inspired by local ingredients and flavors with International gourmet twists. A good example: Rum pepper–painted grouper (marinated in cloves, white rum, soy sauce, and crushed peppercorns) served with mango mojo, smashed cassava, and caramelized plantain. 
 
Reservations are required, with seatings on the half hour from 6 to 9:30pm. Sapodilla is closing for the month of September in 2014 (the Bahamas’ low season), but as a new property we’ll just have to wait and see if that will become a tradition.
