A new two-story stone building is being completed, to include a kitchen for a new restaurant at Mongoose Junction. This work has been going on for more than a year, even while the Deli Grotto serves up some of the finest sandwiches on St. John. Owner dan Sheffey has a great, welcoming attitude, evev as he’s working behind the counter. (Call 340/ 777-3061 and order some sandwiches to go for a picnic at the beach.)
The new building’s roof beams are up, and the downstairs interior is being plastered, according to a recent visitor. Like lots of things on island, the new place ‘soon come’.
