U.S. Virgin Islands restaurants

The relaxed pace of life on the islands extends to the U.S. Virgin Islands' restaurant scene: It's common to find resort casual–clad diners feasting on Caribbean favorites such as conch fritters and johnnycakes (deep-fried biscuits). On St. Thomas, most of the best restaurants, such as Havana Blue and Cuzzin's, are found in the southern and eastern sections of the island. St. John's dining scene revolves around Cruz Bay, at places including La Tapa and P&P by-the-Sea. On St. Croix, foodies head to Christiansted and eateries such as Bacchus and Lalita. Prime dinner hours are 6 to 8 pm. Reservations usually aren't necessary, but it's a good idea to call ahead at upscale restaurants such as Kendrick's. During the August–October hurricane season, many establishments shut down entirely.
