On the 16th to the 26th of July is the first ever Restaurant Week in St. Kitts-Nevis!
Over this 10 day period participating restaurants across the twin-island federation will be offering special menus at discounted rates.
About 40 restaurants between St Kitts and Nevis are already on board for the event which gives patrons lots of options to choose from!
Some of the names of participating restaurants include: Marshall’s, Kittitian Hill, the Verandah at Ocean Terrace, Serendipity, Rock Lobster, Sunset Café at Timothy Beach Resort, Mr. X’s Shiggidy Shack, Carambola Beach Club, Nirvana, Spice Mill, Sweet Lime and the extensive list continues.
Even the smaller, locally owned eateries are joining in on the action, offering lunch specials and attractive prices as part of the inaugural Restaurant Week!
Minister of Tourism, Hon. Lindsay Grant, spoke at the media launch and pointed out that the St. Kitts-Nevis Restaurant Week embodies sustainable tourism at its best.
“First and foremost, Restaurant Week is about supporting local livelihoods on St. Kitts and Nevis—farmers and fishers who work so hard to provide quality local food supply, and our restaurants who prepare and serve it day after day. We are especially focused on inclusion of small enterprises, with participation in Restaurant Week ranging from street vendors and snackettes, to our highest-end dining establishments,” Minister Grant said. “Second, Restaurant Week showcases the Federation’s vibrant culture—our competitive restaurant scene, and our distinct local cuisine and food. We all know our local food and culture—and St. Kitts and Nevis vibes—are like nowhere else on Earth. Restaurant Week is about highlighting our distinctiveness and celebrating what makes our dining culture special.”
As means of adding emphasis on the use of local ingredients for Restaurant Week and beyond, organizers will host a “Breadfruit Challenge” that will encourage locals to take out their chef hats and get creative as they compete for creating the best-tasting breadfruit dish which will be judged by a panel of local celebrities.
