Blissful Afternoons Bayside at da’Vida

With 33 beaches and some of the best dining in the Caribbean, the choices are many when it comes to Anguillian lunch spots that exude tranquility wrapped in blue.

One of the very best and most popular? da’Vida’s Bayside Grill on Crocus Bay.

Build up an appetite by kayaking on the bay’s calm waters and snorkeling the still seas, or simply soak up the day’s rays from the restaurant’s complimentary (and luxurious!) lounge chaises.

It’s funny how doing nothing at all goes hand in hand with mouthwatering drinks and eats! 😉

Frozen cocktails of all kinds…

Tastes of Tokyo Bay With New Chef Joe Richardson

CuisinArt’s Tokyo Bay recently welcomed their new sushi chef, Joe Richardson.

Formerly of Sushi Samba and BarMASA in Las Vegas, we were eager to see what Chef Joe had in store and started off the weekend with a visit to “Mom’s favorite,” Tokyo Bay.

The evening began with spicy, wok-tossed, warm edamame beans, topped with garlic flakes and a bottle of hot sake.

The combination sure heats up your palate!

You will still find Tokyo Bay’s very best dishes on the menu, including the rock shrimp tempura, coated in a tangy sauce, topped with finely-chopped scallions and cilantro.

What’s different with Chef Joe leading the kitchen?

Everything is even better than before, if you can imagine that!

The Duck Duck Goose Gyoza, for instance, was even finer than I had remembered. The gyoza skin itself (the hardest part to get right) was crunchy-crisp on the bottom and warmly-steamed through the top. The flavors inside? Savory with a touch of sweet.

While we stuck to our favorites throughout the evening, a new dish caught our eye as a must-try…

tuna sushi with foie gras and eel sauce, topped with gold flakes

Tuna sushi with foie gras, bathed in an eel sauce. Garnished with gold flakes, it is a glamorous dish, and it tastes as good as it looks. Rich and decadent, with a smokey hint.

Then, it was time for the true test!…

The sushi and sashimi.

First? A few slices of salmon sashimi. Generously cut, they simply melt in your mouth.

The sushi sampler, including, hamachi, tuna, yellowtail and salmon, were equally excellent and left us with one thought…

Chef Joe is a true sushi master.

With a few classic rolls to end the evening, including an improved California roll (thicker and with more flavorful crab compared to before)…

Weekends at Le Bar

In good Friday fashion, we paid Didier & Veronique a pre-weekend visit yesterday afternoon (is there a better way to begin a weekend?)…

le bar on the beach

Down on Sandy Ground beach, the sun shines something special over Road Bay in the mid-afternoon, lighting up the still and peaceful sea.

A crisp glass of rose pairs perfectly with the sights of the sea and the French ambiance.

And then?…

“Le Veriunic” burger, the island’s very best, hand-made and infused with special Herbes de Provence. No matter how many times we ask, “What’s your secret, Veronique?” she never tells 😉

Equally outstanding is her lobster salad, prepared with homemade mayonnaise…
