Blue by Eric Ripert has managed to transfer the best of Manhattan’s world-famous restaurant scene to the beautiful Cayman Islands. Seasoned with a dash of Caribbean flavor and styled with Island flair, this award-winning restaurant is almost as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the palate.

With a menu that revolves around the fresh-caught bounty of the Caribbean sea, Blue takes gastronomy to ethereal new levels with almost impossibly creative riffs on fresh fish and seafood cookery. Enjoy a carefully orchestrated symphony of flavors and a rave-worthy dining experience when you opt for one of five tasting menus, including the signature Blue by Eric Ripert menu or the Eric Ripert Classics menu featuring the fabled tuna foie gras. A wine cellar with more than 800 selections, one of the best in the Caribbean, rounds out the restaurant’s opulent offerings.
