The two are joining Katsuya Uechi, who runs the eatery Katsuya, Dario Cecchini, who helms Carna, and Danny Elmaleh, of the outpost Cleo, who are already working in the area.

Meanwhile, Jean Georges Vongerichten is at Dune at the Ocean Club, Nobu Matsuhisa Nobu joins Todd English, who runs Olives and Bobby Flay, who has Mesa at Atlantis, while Jose Andres has Fish at the Cove.

“The Bahamian people, the culture and, of course, the access to fantastic Caribbean ingredients is extremely exciting to be around,” Samuelsson, the newest chef to hit the shores told The Post. “I’ve loved visiting the Bahamas for years, so it’s truly a dream come true to have a restaurant on this beautiful island. I am inspired by the warm Bahamian hospitality and close-knit community that I am looking forward to being a part of as well as welcoming to our restaurant.”
