For great food and unsurpassed views, try out the Island View Restaurant next time you’re in Charlotte Amalie. Several friends had recommended it, so one night we piled into a taxi with Steve and Lynn (Celebration), Jamie and Keith (Kookaburra), and Carl and Carrie (La Creole) and headed up the hill. It’s an open restaurant overlooking Charlotte Amalie, the bays, and the Caribbean Sea beyond. There’s an honor bar, but we had brought an inexpensive bottle of French red wine that we had picked up in Martinique. Chris and I split the grilled rib eye, it was so big, and we still had some leftovers! Since we were splitting, we each also got a baked potato, grilled asparagus, and salad bar. To end the evening on a sweet note, we splurged and each got dessert: New York cheesecake (Chris) and Reeses cake (Anne). It was lovely to relax with friends and watch the day fade to night, and the full moon rise over the hill. We’ll definitely go back.
