Working on St. John – no day at the beach

We hear it a lot.  People come to St. John to get away from cold weather, bad relationships, or because they love the island.  But living and working on island have their challenges.  Business people tell us they rarely are able to take time off.  Restaurant and retail employees often work two jobs or split shifts, leaving little time to relax.  So, when visitors joke with a bartender that it must be wonderful living in paradise, they should not be surprised if the response is bittersweet.

In the second part of a conversation with Paul Trujillo, the new executive chef at Paradiso, he talks about this kind of thing.  He’s been on island four years.  While his own culinary skills have been praised, he has good words for some other cooks, too.  In this portion of our interview, he names his favorite places to eat.
