Graceway Gourmet Grocery Store
There's a fair chance your Turks and Caicos accommodation will have its own full-equipped kitchen where you can make your own meals in the comfort of your room. Many suites come stocked with top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of room to prepare your own healthy dinners made with local fresh ingredients. Many resorts have small convenience stores on the property to pick up supplies but one of the best places to get groceries is the Graceway Gourmet - an upmarket grocery store located right in the heart of Grace Bay. Graceway Gourmet offers a wide selection of fresh fish, meat, fruits and vegetables, and a wonderland of necessities for snacks. Stock up on booze with a complete wine, spirits and cold beer section to enjoy down at the beach. There's also an in-store deli and salad bar that makes some excellent sandwiches and homemade pizzas.
Lotus at Parrot Cay
Lotus at Parrot Cay by COMO is an alfresco poolside restaurant with an easy-going style that belies the sophistication of its cuisine, and has earned its reputation one of the top restaurants in the Turks and Caicos. Here guests come and go in beach gear, stopping in for light Caribbean-inflected lunchtime fare during the day (with tasty seafood dishes along with pastas and salads) and contemporary Thai- and Japanese-inspired Asian dishes at night for dinner. At Lotus the food is always innovative and always fresh, healthy and delicious. Join Lotus every Saturday for an open air barbecue and soak up the good life. The nutritious and delicious COMO Shambhala menu is the brainchild of Executive Chef Martin Davies, a world-class gourmand whose resume includes Executive Chef gigs at Soho House in New York, the Penthouse Club in London, and most recently at Coyaba in Providenciales. He now calls Parrot Cay home, and is eager to share his spirited interpretation of pan-Asian, Italian and European cooking with you.
