The crystal clear blue waters. The white sandy beaches. The bliss of being on vacation. 

Just when you thought the Bahamas couldn't get any better…

Katsuya, that most celebrated of Japanese good-timeries, is now open in the biggest casino Bahamas-wide, Baha Mar. Check it out.

The draw of feasting upon things created by Chef Katsuya Uechi on your tropical getaway will be strong, so you'll stroll in at your leisure and promptly notice Philippe Starck's sleek design elements. Things like white and tan leather chairs, Japanese miscellany and dragon scale-y wallpaper.

Naturally, you'll end up gravitating to the patio overlooking the beach and pool, where you'll grab a pair of seats at an umbrella-shaded table. You'll order cucumber-watermelon mojitos with rum and crushed watermelon. You'll sip them. You'll take in the view and generally enjoy your lives.

The idea of eating fresh things from the sea will strike you as a good one, which will lead to things like yellowtail sashimi and baked crab hand rolls. 

And as fate would have it, that baba rum with robata pineapple, Bahamian spiced rum and rum raisin ice cream happens to pair perfectly with a Bahamian sunset.

As most things tend to do.

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
