Bahama Breeze Island Grille — the casual dining restaurant that gives guests the feeling of an island escape — celebrates the grand opening of its newest New Jersey location this week. The new restaurant, which created approximately 150 new jobs in the area, is located at the Outlets at Bergen Center at 1600 Bergen Town Center in Paramus. Bahama Breeze has three existing New Jersey locations, including restaurants in Wayne, Woodbridge and Cherry Hill.
“We are excited to introduce Bahama Breeze to Paramus and residents of the surrounding area,” said Bahama Breeze President Brian Foye. “At Bahama Breeze, our mission is to provide an unforgettable island escape for our guests by offering fresh and delicious foods and tropical drinks in a warm and vibrant atmosphere.”
The Paramus location offers approximately 8,500 square feet of dining space and room for more than 300 guests. The location is open daily for lunch and dinner with regular happy hours Monday through Friday from 4 to 6 p.m., and late-night happy hours Sunday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to close.
The new restaurant is designed to nurture a warm, island-like atmosphere featuring vibrant colors, high ceilings and lush landscaping. The space can accommodate small and large parties in intimate and group settings, has a spacious bar and an outdoor deck with comfortable seating and large HD flat-screen TVs that guests can enjoy during warmer months.
“Our restaurant is designed to create an atmosphere of casual relaxation and fun, like you’d find in the islands,” said John Brown, the new restaurant’s general manager. “As the weather gets colder and the New Jersey winter sets in, the Bahama Breeze in Paramus offers a tropical dining adventure with friendly service, delicious food and handcrafted tropical drinks.”
Known for its fresh seafood, wood-grilled chicken and flame-grilled steaks made with island inspiration, the Bahama Breeze menu features a variety of house-made burgers, Jerk Chicken Pasta, Coconut Shrimp, Fresh Pan-Seared Salmon Pasta and Baby Back Ribs. The restaurant also has a daily fresh fish menu, a wide selection of shareable appetizers such as Firecracker Shrimp and Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sliders and a “snacks and small plates” menu including Chicken Empanadas, Mojo Marinated Pork with Sweet Plantains and much more.
Thirsty guests can choose from an extensive bar menu with a large selection of handcrafted tropical drinks including mojitos, margaritas, martinis and tropical cocktails, as well as a diverse beer list that includes Aruba Red, a microbrew made especially for Bahama Breeze. The restaurant’s line of premium tropical drinks, “Legendary Island Cocktails,” includes 10 authentic, custom-made drinks sourced from world-famous locales and created with the same techniques and ingredients that made them famous.
