To aid the island’s “stay at home” efforts in response to COVID-19, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort is adapting services at its waterfront dining establishment, The Palisades Restaurant, to now offer takeaway, curbside pickup and food delivery to the local community.
The new takeout menu includes Chef favorites from Fort Young’s Palisades and Warner Bar, including Island Callaloo Soup, Veggie or Chicken Roti, Pizza and our signature Warner’s Burger. Additionally, the meals being prepared for Koudmen Kitchen will be featured as the ‘Meal of the Day’ and available for purchase. Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort’s The Palisades Restaurant will continue to operate in accordance with Dominica’s guidelines and will commence takeout, curbside pickup and delivery food service beginning April 6,2020. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9:30am until 4:30pm.
Proceeds from ‘Meal of the Day’ takeout meals will be reinvested in Koudmen Kitchen, a Fort Young Hotel initiative launched hand-in-hand with sister-property Secret Bay, to supply COVID-19 frontline workers and healthcare professionals with 50 no-cost meals a day at four locations across the island for at least the next thirty days.
“We’re delighted to not only keep Fort Young’s The Palisades Restaurant open but to now offer a new special to-go menu and safely deliver orders to our loyal patrons,” said Gregor Nassief, chairman of GEMS Holdings Limited. “I’m inspired and proud of our entire team.”
