Chef Todd English will introduce his Olives restaurant to Atlantis Paradise Island, opening June 1, 2013. Featuring his signature open kitchen and Mediterranean cuisine, Olives Atlantis will be cited in the Atlantis Casino.
Designed by interior architect and designer Jeffrey Beers, the restaurant is Olives’ first in the region.
“We are thrilled to welcome yet another celebrity chef to the Atlantis dining experience,” says George Markantonis, president and managing director of Atlantis Paradise Island.
“Olives will provide our guests with a taste of the Mediterranean in paradise. We are proud to add a restaurant of this calibre to our current world-class culinary roster.”
Olives Atlantis will feature an open kitchen where English’s team will be preparing dishes from a rotisserie grill, with made-to-order cuts of meat and grilled fish.
The Raw Bar will offer a large fresh seafood display with daily offerings of shellfish, clams and oysters, and a wood-burning oven will showcase English’s thin-crust flatbread pizzas.
The restaurant will open until 3:00 am to satisfy late-night dining requests for those guests in the Casino or Atlantis’ nightclub, Aura.

“I’m excited to be collaborating with Atlantis to bring my Olives brand to the islands, and to capture a brand new dining audience,” said English.
“I always look forward to collaborating with Jeffrey Beers who has designed many of my restaurants across the US. Together, with his design inspiration, I look to create a casual, yet exciting dining experience suitable for everyone–whether you’re seeking a quick and delicious lunch, an intimate and elegant couple’s dinner, or a leisurely and fun meal with family and friends.”
Olives Atlantis joins the range of dining options available at the resort, which includes Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s restaurant Nobu; Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill; and 3-star Michelin chef Jean Georges-Vongerichten’s Café Martinique.
