Modern Heritage Dining is the Rousseau’s personal homage to the traditional Caribbean diet, and is an elevated presentation of the culinary heritage, personality and classic style of the West Indies with simple, pure, modern interpretations of the region’s most traditional and delicious ingredients.
 
A modern heritage dining experience is born from the culinary habits inherited from slavery and colonisation, reinterprets them for the modern epicurean and presents them in a sophisticated, elegant and breezy setting.
