A trio of new restaurants is making waves on this French Caribbean island.

September 10, 2010

Best for Sand and Shade: Informal, funky, and family-friendly, La Gloriette (lunch for two $77) has waterfront wooden tables shaded by sea-grape trees. Try crisp conch fritters, grilled fresh dorade, and a cold Carib beer while watching the kite surfing offshore.

Best for Ocean Views: Lobster salad with mango marmalade, housemade french fries, and vivaneau (red snapper) a la plancha are standouts at Hôtel Christopher’s Le Mango (lunch for two $50), where white canvas awnings add a nautical touch to open-air dining.

Best for a Downtown Vibe: At 88 (lunch for two $90), a sidewalk café in the main port’s ritzy shopping area, try the chef’s expertly seasoned Greek plates, such as an airy puff pastry with caramelized onions and leeks.
