St. Barths: Eddy's for Dinner at Carnaval

Two previous stays here in the past we tried to get in Eddy’s, but it was full. Last night, during Carnaval strangely, was the first time we’ve dined there! It’s a unique space, a cross between a tropical garden, a pirate’s den and a Caribbean stronghold. In short, one could see why the regatta folks like to let their hair down at Eddy’s. Jim really enjoyed the food; he started with goat cheese in phyllo pastry squares and a spinach salad; my lobster medallions with a salad garnished with avocado and asparagus was equally unusual and delicious. We had a very reasonable but delightful vin rouge, Mont-Redon’s 2012 Cotes du Rhone to wash this down, and then I had lightly seared wahoo with plantains on the side. Jim liked the rich lobster cassoulet, smothered in cream and rum sauce. For dessert there was a panna cotta, that very light Italian cream concoction and even better the chocolat fondant, at Eddy’s called ‘hot chocolate cake.’ It’s always our favorite dessert in both France and on St. Barth’s. –Dan
