The Grand Cayman culinary scene just got a little hotter with the introduction of Bonfire Urban Italian Kitchen on West Bay Road just a stone’s throw from world-famous Seven Mile Beach.

Located within Locale Grand Cayman – the island ‘ s brand-new boutique hotel – Bonfire represents a new wave of affordable gourmet casual Italian-inspired cuisine served up by friendly staff in a social, fun and communal atmosphere.  Bonfire, which debuted last month,  is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week with indoor and outdoor dining options along with a quality list of local and international beers, wine and cocktails.

Bonfire’s selection of Italian specialties includes house-made pastas, flash-baked pizzas and healthy salads with fresh ingredients from the local farmers market. Breakfast includes nutritious choices such as a chia orange pudding and avocado toast, with specialty Italian coffee.

” After working on this project for two years, we are delighted to open Bonfire to very positive reviews from both locals and island visitors, ”  said Marco Mauthner, Director of Food and Beverage , who described Bonfire ‘ s food as ” simple, affordable and excellent. ”

Mauthner, who has opened more than 20 restaurants across the globe in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean, explained that Bonfire uses only fresh, homemade ingredients. ” Nothing is frozen, ”  noted the Austrian national.  “W e are making everything from scratch in the kitchen using only the finest ingredients and locally grown produce. ”

Michael Wilkings, co-founder of HHG Advisory Services,  developer and operator of both the Locale hotel and Bonfire restaurant, explained that the twin businesses are designed for the community and for visitors.

 

” Our common areas, with fast free Wi-Fi and an open-plan design, tie our community together, ”  he said, adding that the warm and welcoming vibe and communal work space allow guests, diners and locals to interact, collaborate or just chill and hang out in a congenial space.

 

” Grand Cayman has some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, but they ‘ re generally expensive, ”  he commented.  ” Bonfire is designed to offer delicious, high quality, fresh food at affordable prices … and the same goes for our full service bar.”
