Hello everyone and happy Friday! Let’s end this week right… How about a quick story about a fabulous new restaurant in Cruz Bay??!!
Earlier this year, we told you that the folks over at Extra Virgin Bistro were planning on opening a sister restaurant over at Mongoose Junction in the space formerly occupied by Ocean Grill. The new spot is call 1864 – which happen to be the coordinates for St. John – and it’s pretty great.
1864 opened during the last week of June, and we apologize for being a little late to the party on this one. We’ve dined at the restaurant three times – twice for lunch and once for dinner – and each time, we enjoyed ourselves so much that we forgot to take good photos to share with all of you. So rather than wait any longer, we’re going to share some of the restaurant’s photos.
As mentioned, 1864 is open for lunch and dinner Wednesday through Monday. Lunch is served 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. They offer a raw bar from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. which changes daily but typically includes items such as oysters on the half shell, chilled Maine lobster and shrimp cocktail. Dinner is served from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The bar is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
What I really like about 1864 is the fact that it has a great wine list. I have to admit, I love having a nice lunch with friends with a great glass of wine in a beautiful setting. 1864 hits the mark for this.
The menu is still evolving, but here’s a sneak peek of what they are currently serving for lunch plus a few more pics.
What do you all think? Looks amazing, doesn’t it?
Well that’s all we have for you today. Have a fantastic Friday everyone!
