Well folks, we have sad news to share with you all today. Pickles in Paradise, one of our favorite restaurants in Coral Bay, has announced its plans to close. Pickles last day will be this Saturday, July 13th. This is the third restaurant on St. John to close over the past month.
Pickles is a great little sandwich shop located just beyond the famous Coral Bay sign. Beverly Melius opened the small restaurant – known for its Open Mic Night each Thursday – several years back. She listed it for sale back in 2017, but was unable to find a buyer before the storms. A local couple ran the restaurant for several months in 2018 before Beverly resumed operations back in November.
Beverly sent us the following note yesterday, announcing its impending closure.
As we mentioned above, Pickles is the third restaurant to close in the past month. Both Da Livio and Lucky Chops closed in Cruz Bay last month.
We are truly going to miss Beverly and her delicious food. And I thank her for participating in our St. Johnopoly game earlier this year.
