The new outlet offers a variety of handcrafted cocktails and fare inspired by the resort’s dedication to healthy living and well-being. Menu standouts include ahi sashimi “poke style” and grilled salmon with Israeli cous cous and coriander yogurt. Highlights of the menu’s refreshing libations include the Rein Margarita, Born to Rum, which pairs Flor de Cana rum with mango, Kaffir lime leaf, vanilla and ginger, as well as a selection of rosés from Domaines Ott Rosé to Domaine Chandon “Etoile” Rosé.
