Featured above: Owners Tabetha Phillips and Chef Sarah Willers
Chef Sarah Willers and Co-Owner Tabetha Phillips opened Blue Ridge Restaurant and Cottages on July 24, 2015. Best friends of 15 years, Sarah and Tabetha’s foundation to their friendship has always been the love of great food. Coupled with an admiration for mother nature, they decided to open their business on Willers’ family owned coffee farm which is nestled in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica and showcases a part of the island that is still a hidden treasure. Conveniently located only 17km (approx 10 miles) outside of Kingston, Blue Ridge offers a great escape for both locals and tourists alike.
Chef Sarah Willers leads the innovative culinary experience at Blue Ridge Restaurant and Cottages and is pioneering the introduction of adventure dining to Jamaica. Chef Willers studied Culinary Arts at Johnson and Wales University in Miami, Florida and has over 15 years of culinary experience. Pairing international cuisine with whimsical food presentation, Chef Willers has created a restaurant unlike any other on the local dining scene.
Tabetha Phillips has over 20 years of experience in the service industry and manages the front of house staff and accommodations. Her vision is for each guest to have an incredible experience when dining or staying at Blue Ridge. Tabetha pays great attention to detail and is able to provide a warm and welcoming environment. She also has a passion for interior design which is reflected in the decor of each cottage. The cottages take advantage of the landscape which offers breathtaking views of the Blue Mountains and the city lights of Kingston below and make for a great getaway from everyday life.
