New restaurant in business at Wharfside

The Waterfront Bistro, at the Wharfside shopping center, is hoping to have its official grand opening within 24 hours. 

The classy-looking restaurant has been doing a "soft open" for the past four nights, or so, and was about 60% full when we stopped in for a look Saturday night. 

We talked with Joe, the owner-manager, who said it’s been months of work to get the place open.  Everything is new include both (!) kitchens’ equipment – there’s one in back, called the ‘prep’ and then there’s the plating/serving bar, kind of the "show’ place. 

A waterfront bar has been added, and the entire space where Panini Beach was has now been covered with a roof that’s about 8 or 9 feet high.  No more of that scrambling to get people inside when the Caribbean skies begin to rain.
During our visit, everyone was warm, upbeat, and pleasant – happy to show of the result of all that work.

Here’s a sampling of the menu’s appetizers Vichyssoise ($8), Oysters on the Half Shell ($18), Carmelized Onion and Chefre Tartlett ($12).  Salads, etc.: Mixed Greens ($10), Arugula and Roasted Beets ($13).  EntreesP: Plaintnand Crusted Wild Salmno ($31), Vegetable Risotto ($28), and  Poached Caribbean Lobster Tail ($39).  The phone # is 340-777-7755.

  1. We tried out this new venue last week. The place is lovely with great waterfront views. The service very nice. But the food has a long way to catch up to other food venues. For the price they need to ramp up the kitchen.
