Top Chef Finale! Plus March Events in the Bahamas

This week on Bravo’s hit show “Top Chef” the finale was hosted in the beautiful Bahamas.  The show started out in the historic Fort Charlotte in Nassau.  This is a great spot to experience some of the naval history of the Bahamas.  The Chef’s cooked a meal for a “King” and served the king of our prized Junkanoo parade.  The Chefs are staying on Paradise Island, and you can catch glimpses of our backyard in the show. 

We are so proud to host Top Chef on our Island.  Part 2/4 of the finale premieres next Wednesday night March 16th at 9 CST on Bravo TV.  The 3rd and 4th installment will be on the subsequent Wednesdays after that!
