One you’ve made the move to paradise, eat like a local too. Try these restaurants for lunch in Christiansted:
Walk through what feels like a secret passageway off King Street to a chilled cave. Enjoy a wide variety of cuisine from a lengthy menu. If there’s a seafood pasta on the special board, order it. Otherwise, choose something like the Chicken Alfredo from the favorites section of the menu.
Located in a nice courtyard off Company Street is an incredible French restaurant with just a handful of tables, so you’ll need a reservation. You can’t go wrong ordering here, but the vegetarian platter is especially impressive (even if you’re not vegetarian), as is the chicken salad. This establishment is well-known for their pies, of which you’ll also need to reserve a slice in advance (Pear Chocolate is delectable). They accept cash only.
Hidden in a courtyard with a lovely fountain off King Street (across from the Strand Street government parking lot) is a culinary gem frequented by the surrounding businesses. A small menu of what they’re really good at offers no bad choices. The Funky Chicken Salad is amazing if you like Thai curry, while the Fresco Fatty is a yummy Mexican-style veggie burrito. Chilled teas and fresh juices make the outdoor dining particularly pleasant. Don’t forget dessert!
At the corner of Company and Queen Cross Streets, step inside and cool down in a pleasant atmosphere of beautiful wood tables and expansive bar. This Christiansted staple offers classic American fare with a few specialties in the mix. Try their Greek gyro and you won’t be disappointed.
