In a Christian Liaigre wenge version of a British colonial dining room, with a blue glass wall into the kitchen and an open-air terrace overlooking the ocean, is Jean-Georges Vongerichten's first Caribbean outpost. The question is, how often does Jean-Georges get down here, given his 18 other restaurants? Never mind; dishes such as spice-crusted snapper with sweet-and-sour jus, local tomatoes, and oregano, or a lobster sandwich spiced with Bahamian goat pepper, are a cut above most of what you find on Paradise Island, and yet another reason to visit the One&Only Ocean Club. Vongerichten's second restaurant in these parts, Café Martinique, opened to considerable fanfare but doesn't match this place in terms of food or service.

Open daily 7 to 11 am, noon to 3 pm, and 6 to 9:30 pm.
