St. Croix, US Virgin Islands is known for a lot of things – amazing beaches, great weather, captivating historical sites and most of all mouth-watering delicacies. It’s not an overstatement if we say that St. Croix restaurants can give any other restaurants all over the world a run for their money. One of the most popular here is eat @ cane bay.
Eat at cane bay, as the name suggests, is located at the Cane Bay Beach of Frederiksted. As a follow up to their very successful Bacchus Restaurant on St. Croix, owners Frank and Katherine Pugliese opened eat @ cane bay in 2009. The open-air restaurant, open every Wednesday to Sunday from 11am – 9pm (except Sunday, they close at 4pm), serves delectable appetizers, seafood, steaks, sandwiches, and their famous build your own burger.
Now allow me to rave about some of their best creations. Their pulled pork sandwich is to die for. It’s made North Carolina style and smoked and slow roasted on a brioche bun. At around 5:30pm or so, they get a little jazzed up with food shots and fresh seafood and hand-cut steaks.
What, you ask, are food shots? It’s a one bite appetizer. This spoonful of yummy goodness is placed in a Chinese spoon and prepared by their local chefs every night. What’s so exciting about them is they create new shots nightly, often using Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna or another local, fresh fish! How cool is that?
As for seafood, you are sure to expect nothing but the best and the freshest fish, shrimp, or mussel to be served at your table. Of course, what better goes with good food than cool drinks? Eat serves an array of local and imported beers and special cocktails. Try them!
Perhaps the most famous menu item here is not written on their menu board per se. It is written in the minds of their loyal customers. Frank and Katherine and the rest of their chefs gave the power to their customers on what would they like to eat, how they want it and what’s it in. This is the heart and soul behind B.Y.O.B. or simply, build-your-own-burger. Customers are given a chance to create their own meal through a list of ingredients they can use. And the guys at eat @ cane bay loved their customer’s creations so much they put up burger of the month (b.o.t.m), And just recently, they let their loyal customers choose the burger of the year.
