On Friday 16th, October the Alexander Hotel on Cayman Brac, was the scene of the commencement of the opening of the ARBUTUS GALLEY AND RESTAURANT. It was long in coming but it was worth the wait.
The new addition to the Alexander Hotel is owned by Dwayne and Dawn McLean Brady, both Grand Cayman locals. In fact, Dawn’s parents are from the Brac.
For the couple, it is a dream come true as Brady was one of the original chefs when the Alexander first opened its doors. On Saturday 16th attendees were served Jerk chicken and Fish Fry.
Another original chef, Errol Bucknor, a Jamaican will be re-uniting once again with Brady when he returns in November. Jimmy D’s Bar is the complement to the restaurant and Friday night’s entertainment was provided by the ever-popular Burman Scott and DJ Renato. Saturday night’s event was open to the public with Bar- B- Que chicken and Conch Soup on the menu.
Some of the positive comments received follows:
Theresa from Grand Cayman: “This food is par excellence. It’s tasty, mouth- watering and well-seasoned. I will be recommending to my friends and family.”
Paulette: “So glad to be here. This food is awesome. The texture and taste are simply remarkable.”
Sheriffa and Samuel from Cayman Brac: “Our kids longed for this. The atmosphere is so congenial. The food as well, simply delicious. This was much needed as an alternative for residents.”
“The restaurant will be up and running from Monday, 7a.m- 10 p.m. with delivery services available,” said Mrs. Brady. The current staff is made up of mainly Cayman Brackers.
“Residents can walk in and be taken care off as it relates to their dining. In fact, we are excited about this aspect as well,” she added.
