From June 3 through August 3, the Fairmont Hamilton Princess, Bermuda hotel will host a pop-up restaurant by chef Marcus Samuelsson—of New York’s Red Rooster Harlem fame, among other ventures—in anticipation of his new signature restaurant, which is set to open on the property in May 2015.

“Bermuda has a vibrant history that has resulted in an interesting mash-up of British, Caribbean and Portuguese influences,” Samuelsson says. “The Fairmont in Bermuda combines that rich culture with a modern perspective. It’s a perfect inspiration for a bold, fresh menu and seaside dining.” That includes Samuelsson’s clever reinvention of local favorites, like a croquette version of the island’s classic fish chowder and a Dark and Stormy sorbet. Rum cake with strawberry salad is pictured here.

“Chef Samuelsson’s signature, internationally influenced cooking style is a great fit for Bermuda, and there will be nothing like this on the island,” says George Terpilowski, the hotel’s managing director.

In honor of the occasion, the Fairmont is offering a Culinary Escape Package (through August 2; from $780; 800-441-1414), complete with accommodations in a newly renovated deluxe harbor-view room, a signed copy of Samuelsson’s memoir, Yes, Chef (Random House Trade Paperbacks), and dinner for two at the pop-up. Rooms start at $580; 76 Pitts Bay Rd.; 441-295-3000;
