The island of St Croix in the USVI has quietly become one of the hottest culinary destinations in the Caribbean, with a vibrant dining scene and a host of top young chefs like Digby Stridiron.
And now there’s another great way to enjoy the culinary delights of the island: Dine St Croix.
The culinary event, originally known as Dine VI, was relaunched this fall by the U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism, and aims to provide visitors and residents with immersive cultural experiences across the island’s diverse restaurant scene through November 16.
“St. Croix is without question one of the hottest culinary destinations in the Caribbean,” said U.S. Virgin Islands Commissioner of Tourism Joseph Boschulte, who pledged the Department of Tourism will continue to leverage the island’s rich history, culture and culinary prowess to boost tourism to the island.
Sixteen eateries are confirmed for Dine St. Croix, including 40 Strand Eatery, balter, Beach Side Cafe, Beauregard’s on the Beach, BES Craft Cocktail Lounge, BREW STX, Cast Iron Pot Restaurant and Bar, Ciboné, DoughBoy Pretzels, EvRah Blue Moon Ice Cream, Ital in Paradise, Rum and Wine Bar Restaurant, Singh’s Fast Food, The Terrace, Twin City Coffee House & Gallery and Un Amore.
Restaurants are offering special prix fixe menus, giving patrons the chances to indulge in cross sections of Crucian cuisine, including fresh farm-to-table and sea-to-plate options made with locally sourced ingredients.
Special Dine St. Croix events include Cornmeal Culture “Tunin” Fungi on November 7 and 13, Sunset & Just Desserts on November 9 and a Mixology Demonstration & Saltfish Guny Cooking Demo on November 15.
