Calling all crucian gourmets, gourmands, and foodies of every age - Dine Vi is officially starting tomorrow!
The V.I. Department of Tourism has teamed with local restaurateurs and farmers to provide a variety of dining experiences that will familiarize locals and tourists alike with new places and the special tastes of St. Croix.
Participating restaurants have agreed to offer three-course three-option prix fixe dinners during the event for either $35 or $49. Menus will include locally-sourced and/or traditional items, but menus aren’t the only thing unique to Dine VI week … Gospel Brunches on Sunday, November 1st for example, will feature choirs from local churches and, on Monday at the Lawaetz Museum, the Landmark Society will showcase local produce and food products.
