The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island – one of my favorite Southeast resorts – has opened its new Lobby Bar that it says is inspired by ‘bourbon legends,’’ featuring small batch spirits and craft cocktails, such as the Smoked Old Fashioned. Theater and craft cocktails meld together with personal tableside infusions.
The Lobby Bar offers light bites, including freshly-prepared sushi, sashimi and specialty rolls.
The Lobby Bar also features The Legends Table, a private banquette with a cocktail menu personalized for guests. While seated at The Legends Table, guests receive a small batch tasting flight, signature cocktail, sushi presentation and the opportunity to upgrade the experience to include rare spirits, including Pappy Van Winkle.
On the bites side, house specialties include the Amelia Roll with shrimp tempura and spicy tuna and Lobster & Scallop Crudo. The menu also includes appetizers and small plates. The Sushi Bar is open from 12 p.m. till 10 p.m.
