Tommy Bahama Restaurant was a pleasant surprise! Its décor is reminiscent of a hotel restaurant in the Caribbean. Live music plays in the backdrop.  The entire atmosphere sweeps you away to a happy place and relaxing time; seemingly far away from the hustle and bustle of the busy Manhattan avenue where the restaurant is located.

I ordered the seared diver scallop sliders with a side of Yucca fries lightly dusted with a jerk seasoning.  The scallop sliders were amazing!!! My favorite dish for 2017 so far! My only wish was for one extra slider since the order only comes with two.  The taste of the sliders was overwhelmingly delicious.  I cannot praise the dish enough.  The Yucca fries were good.  The jerk seasoning was not too spicy.  It did not have the kick I anticipated, which was still good to me because I don’t like spicy food. The Yucca fries were super crunchy on the outside and nice, and creamy on the inside.

I sipped their Painkiller #2  – Pusser’s rum, Cream of Coconut, Pineapple juice, Orange juice blended and topped with grated Nutmeg.  I also had the Crazy Cuban – a blend of Mount Gay Eclipse rum, 99 Bananas schnapps, Cruzan Coconut rum, and Pineapple juice.  Both cocktails were delicious and pretty potent.  For dessert I had the pina colada cake.  The cake was ok.  Someone described it as a cake you would get from Costco. The cake could not be compared to the butter cake at Mastros, but it was edible and I’m sure children, especially, would love it!

I really liked Tommy Bahamas.  Everything was just right.  From the kindness and attentiveness of the waitstaff all the way to just the entire vibe of the establishment, I give this seemingly little known gem high praises.  Tommy Bahama is definitely a must visit!
