It starts with Chef Vincent Gomis , whose culinary resume includes stints at two and three Michelin star eateries in France.
Then there’s the splendid design by Sybille de Margerie and decoration by Michael Malapert.
And it’s all set at the leading resort in St Barth, the beachfront Le Barthelemy.
What it adds up to is the hottest new eatery on the French Caribbean island: Amis.
The open-air eatery, led by Gomis and sous chefs Marie Cecile Gomis-Alexandre and Mathieu Oysselet, has become the island’s in-demand table, joining a portfolio of world-class eateries like Gustavia’s L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon and the Quarter Kitchen and Cocktail Lab, among others.
“We’re thrilled to introduce our new dining concept created for friends old and new to enjoy a celebration of the Mediterranean in the most stylish yet comfortable oceanfront setting,” says Marc Dobbels, managing director at Le Barthélemy.”
The seaside eatery focuses on a menu of fish and natural ingredients, from St Maarten-sourced eggs served carbonara style with truffle and tuna and octopus arancini to poached cod or exquisite cacio e pepe.
It’s the essence of breezy, chic St Barth cool, one that typifies the island’s Cote d’Azur-meets-the-Caribbean vibe.
“Perfect for group gatherings, private dinners and romantic evenings alike, Amis, translated to friends, exemplifies our core philosophy of couture hospitality, offering personalized, unhurried service for a relaxing experience like being with the best of friends.”
