Traditional island cuisine results from a number of cultural influences. The Caribbean islands have been contested and owned by various European powers—primarily the British, French, and Spanish. All of these cultures, as well as their respective culinary traditions, have played a role in forming the multinational cuisine of the Caribbean.
Chef Herb Allwood and his wife Pamela Womble opened 701 Mosaic in August 2008 to present an exciting array of old and new world flavors and showcase their passion for Caribbean and Mediterranean cuisine. They have successfully created an upscale yet warm and welcoming bistro in what was once an abandoned pizza parlor in Ocean City’s North End. The team also received a 2008 Beautification Award from the City of Ocean City for their renovation of the property.
