We never speak about the gourmet
experiences……reason be: most all of the great experiences are
on-board at the whim of a great chef….Cheryl.
But then the odd time we get a chance to experience the local greatness>>>>>>>>>
Tonight was one of those extraordinary titillation
of the palate: One of the prizes we won in the Oyster Regatta was a dinner for
two at Carlisle Bay Resort…..well, I have had a very debilitating back
problem for the last 2 weeks that has far more than cramped our style….BUT….over
the last 36 hours I have started to come out of it and as the back spasms
diminished in the sacroiliach….out appetite for what we knew would be
great expounded!........and, so…..late in the day we moved sea mist a few
miles to the west and anchored off Carlisle Bay Resort….and pursued our reservation
at the East Restaurant where they were expecting us.
There is only one statement to cover it
all: the location, ambiance, tropical environment, service, gourmet food and
piano/sax ensemble did the trick….definitely one of the finest
experiences so far in the Caribe…..”East Restaurant” had a
meaning we would not have otherwise understood….NOT east as in North East
South West….but East as in the FAR EAST gourmet kitchen….unbelievably
great Thai/Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Laotian/Korean dishes…YUM YUM!!!. Up
until tonight, we would have referenced Frenchtown in Charlotte
Amalie, St Thomas, USVI where we had
a terrific dining experience as a t treat of my brother-in-law/sister//….but
after tonight, we would have to give the nod to Carilisle Bay.
Thanks CB and Oyster Regatta ….and Crew of Sea Mist for making the
winning all happen…….A TERRIFIC DINING EVENING enjoyed by Cheryl
Time for bed….cheers to all from the
Caribe…getting shorter on our time here every minute…boo hoo….
