Hotly anticipated Bequia resort recruits top London chef
One of the Caribbean’s most hotly anticipated new resorts, The Liming Bequia, has announced Muskateen Sultan as head chef of its newly built restaurant.
Born in Mauritius, Muskateen has over 10 years’ experience in Marseille and London. He worked as sous chef under Anthony Demetre at Arbutus Restaurant, Soho, and most recently was Senior Sous Chef at award-winning Galvin La Chapelle.
Mustakeen flies to Bequia later this month to ready his team for the glamorous opening on 15 November.
The Liming restaurant extends above the surface of the Caribbean Sea to boast 360 views of the ocean and island. With over 100 covers, the restaurant will cater for hotel guests, passing yachters who can moor at The Liming’s pontoon, and guests from neighbouring islands, including Mustique.
Mustakeen will be responsible for taking a new style of dining experience to the Caribbean. Menus will include ocean to table seafood served in bespoke ice troughs and modern takes on Caribbean classics.
Mustakeen said: “I’m really excited to be heading out to Bequia as we get ready to launch The Liming in November. It will be a real change of scenery and lifestyle but I’m up for the challenge and something new.
“The Liming’s restaurant will be something very different for the Caribbean and I look forward to hosting guests as they enjoy dining in an extremely unique and unforgettable setting.”
Norbert Lieder, Managing Director of ICMI, which manages The Liming, added: “Mustakeen is an exceptional chef with a very talented and successful career to date. After trying his dishes we knew straight away that he was perfect for The Liming as we get ready to reveal what’s set to be one of the top restaurants in the Caribbean.”
The Liming invites guests to experience ‘the real Caribbean’ and the liming way of life. Influenced by the serenity of nature, the destination offers 13 exquisitely designed private villas with, one, two, four and five-bedroom options available, set amongst the outstanding natural beauty of the island, once one of Princess Margaret’s favourite destinations.
