New York strip at BLT Steak in the Turks and Caicos.
Fine dining in the Turks and Caicos is largely characterized by seafood, yet the island of Providenciales (home to world-famous Grace Bay Beach), does feature several excellent steakhouses.
The Turks and Caicos imports nearly all fresh produce, steaks, and other meat products from the United States, typically via refrigerated shipping containers or by plane. Consequently, due to the relatively rapid journey, perishable products are often both fresh and expensive. Small amounts of locally grown produce complements the imported goods. USDA prime graded beef is common in the Turks and Caicos, with grass fed and Black Angus selections often available. A wide range of cuts and steaks can typically be found, including tomahawk, T-bone, New York strip, flank, filet mignon, and bone-in ribeye.
