The middle of August is a perfect time for business owners to get off the island and recharge, just as visitors do when they come to St. John in the winter.
The traditional chronicler of summer closings is Ruth of St. John Spice.
Her "Closing Schedule" shows Cafe Concordia closed until October, La Plancha del Mar offline until August 22nd, and Lime Inn taking a break for the fall beginning next week, August 20. You can see the full schedule here.
The Inquiring Iguana believes the schedule looks lighter than in past years. That is, fewer restaurants seem planning seasonal closures. The best advice would be – check Ruth's list and if the restaurant you'd like to visit shows no information, give 'em a telephone call. The list includes phone numbers for many.
