St. John Podcast #44 – La Plancha del Mar

Planchapic2 A new Happy Hour promotion at La Plancha del Mar is a success, says Jonathan Fritz, co-owner, chef and bartender. 

Monday through Friday, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., La Plancha offers Sangrias and Heinekens for $2 and an appetizer plate of five selections for $5. 

“Now
that the winter season is over, we know we have to draw support from
locals,” Fritz said, and bargain prices for drinks and food will do
it. 

Fritz explains he and his partners, Jason Howard (the tall, handsome guy in the picture) and Mike Prout, are working nearly 12-hour days, at least five days a week, four months after opening for business. 

But they’re loving it. In this week’s St. John Podcast, he talks about the challenges of starting a business on island.

  1. La Planch is on the second floor of where the Starfish Market is !! We went in January, it was very good!!!

  2. I’ve been reading the reviews and have looked at the menu. Sounds fabulous. We’re definitely going to try it when we’re there (6/6 – 6/13).
