So we’ve been sitting on this little secret for a couple of weeks now, and we are super excited to tell you all about this today … a new Mexican restaurant is opening in Cruz Bay! Yum!
Viva La Revolution Cantina will open Sunday, June 19th over in Mongoose Junction in the space currently occupied by Virgin Fire. Viva Cantina is being opened by Michael and Barbie Barry, the owners of both Virgin Fire and Sun Dog Cafe. The restaurant will take a fresh approach to all of the aspects of a restaurant. Its menu will consist of genuine Mexican food that’s approachable, authentic and very flavorful. Everything will be made in house from its made to order corn and flour tortillas to its inventive truck stand tacos, Mexican favorites (enchiladas, chile rellenos, fajitas, tamales) and more. The menu will accented by a wide array of tequilas, served in flights, as margaritas or in pitchers for the table that can be paired with the extensive taco menu.
Check out the sample menu:
“We love the flavors of Mexican food and it lends itself so well to sharing experiences, gluten free options, featuring super foods and keeping our sourcing local, with very few exceptions,” Michael Barry wrote on Virgin Fire’s Facebook page. “We will be planting a garden with the supervision of Gifft Hill School’s Earth Program to supplement our sourcing, working with the Roller Farm in Coral Bay (Josephine’s Green Burrito is slated for the menu), our local boat captains and farmers in the US Virgin Islands whenever feasible.”
I’m not sure about all of you, but I’m pretty excited about this.
For those of you looking to dine at Virgin Fire before it closes its doors for good, its last night serving will be Saturday, June 11th. The evening will feature a $25 buffet and live music.
We’ll keep you all posted on the opening of Viva, and we can assure you, we will be one of its first guests!
