New Restaurant Coming to Cruz Bay

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! What’s been a loosely kept secret is now official … The Tap & Still is coming to Cruz Bay!

As you may or may not know, UMAMI has been closed since the storms. About a month or so back, the owners sold all the equipment and furnishings signaling that it would not reopen. I have to admit, that made me so sad because I absolutely loved UMAMI and its owners. Since then, we’re heard several rumors about what was going in that spot, and yesterday we received confirmation straight from the new owners.

The Tap & Still, the popular burger place over in Red Hook and Havensight, plans to open up in Cruz Bay this June. They put up a sign yesterday alerting the island of their plans.

“We are trilled to announce the The Tap & Still will be coming soon to downtown Cruz Bay,” owner Hooman Pedram told us. “We’ll be bringing the same food at the same prices that our customers have come to love at our two St. Thomas locations. Look for our grand opening in June 2018.”

The Tap & Still is the second St. Thomas restaurant to set up shop here on St. John. Greengo’s, which has locations in St. Thomas and San Juan, opened up at Mongoose earlier this year.

We’ll keep you all posted on this. In the meantime, have a great weekend everyone!

    Great news! Does anyone know what happened to Private Homes VI? We rented homes from them the last 10 years and I have not heard from them and their website is not updated. We used to love renting Soft Winds and have no idea if there was damage or it any of the homes they manage are available. Any info would be appreciated,

      They have a Facebook site and I believe the new number on there is correct. They have a couple of homes ready I believe.
