JULIA’S at HARBOR CLUB
Since opening its doors in December 2017, Harbor club has become “the place to be”, whether for a drink, pizza, sushi, a quick bite, fine dining or freshly baked breads and cakes. With six dining options, TT homed in on Julia’s for lunch.
Julia’s, like much of Harbor Club, oozes casual chic. The ocean-inspired decor gives it a clean, refreshing air. Our favourite spot for a table is the outdoor lounge, next to the resort’s stunning swimming pools and overlooking Rodney Bay marina; or there is air-conditioned comfort in the indoor seating area which, with its plentiful windows, retains the views of the water (and check out the illuminated racks of wine bottles!)
The emphasis of the menu is freshness, right down to the pasta which is made by Chef Marco and his team. The lunch menu incorporates soups, salads, sandwiches, sides and a wonderful selection of fresh pastas. Chef also offers a creative array of fish and seafood dishes including dressed crab with papaya, coconut jelly and crispy Melba, and catch of the day with seasoning, tropical salsa and pickled green bananas. Meat offerings employ best Angus beef in a burger or tagliata, and an impressive chicken roti.
Real thought has gone into the preparation of vegetarian dishes such as potato gnocchi with creamy tomato, mozzarella and Parmesan, and mouthwatering roasted red and golden beetroots with goat cheese and toasted walnuts.
At some restaurants, dessert is an afterthought; at Julia’s it is the icing on the cake! It was difficult to pass on the glorious selection featured on the menu but we wanted to try the home-made ice cream. This was so “moreish” that TT staff now regularly pop into 7th Heaven, Harbor Club’s artisanal pastry shop, for an ice cream or sorbet.
WHY NOT LINGER?
As well as choosing to lunch at Julia’s, consider spending the entire day at Harbor Club by purchasing a day pass which grants use of the pool facilities. That way you can lounge, lunch, loiter and laze!
The owner of Harbor Club, Wes Hall, was raised in Jamaica by his grandmother, Julia Vassal. He is so proud of everything that she instilled in him that he named the restaurant after her.
