1 hour ago Le Pressoir a cautionary tale [by davew]
A heads up to those who have enjoyed meals at Le Pressoir in the past. Four of us dined there two weeks ago and each had a really terrible meal. First off, the menu is a three course fixed price deal with three choices for each course. Dessert choice is selected when ordering. Cost was high but in line with what one would expect for a fine French resteraunt in Grand Case. Upon leaving, we agreed that every single selection was very disappointing. Service was great but thats about it . To make matters worse, one of us experienced the symptoms of food poisioning all night long and through the next day. Too bad, we used to look forward to a great meal at Le Pressoir.

2 hours ago CHEZ LEANDRA.... "Barbecue THIS Weekend! [by RunnernReader]
Talked with Leandra's daughter at their little stall yesterday and she said:

"MOMMA's coming to do barbecue this weekend!"

The main building hasn't begun, and her daughter just shrugged when I asked when it might be done.

5 hours ago My review of Ludos [by RonDon]
First, I would not say this restaurant is French. It’s Fusion. That said, it was great!

Hubby started with escargot and while it tasted good, he expected typical rendition. Instead it was served layered on what looked like salsa chips. He ate every last crumb. His main course was fillet mignon with peppercorn sauce potato, mix veggies. It was juicy, tasty and cooked to perfection, medium rare.

I chose toasted Camembert with cranberries to start. It was so delicious I considered changing my main dish to another order of Camembert. Six thick wedges of cheese with a crunchy exterior atop delicate greens that had a light oil lemon dressing. At one side was a pomegranate sauce and cranberries. I chose rack of lamb with mint sauce. The lamb was cut into individual chops still connected at a small point then fanned out to make a beautiful presentation. The sauce I could have passed on, sort of a purée. Again. A dish cooked to perfection. All was washed down with a bottle of Sansarre Baronne 2015.

Dessert was passed upon. Instead, we moved to the lounge area and sipped Campari and listened to. Chocolate Watts make love to his saxophone. He is fantastic. If you love jazz you must catch a performance. He plays different venues around the island, Ludos, Mary’s Boone, Blue Martini in Grand Case.

Now I’d like to address a comment made here about the musty, sewage smells emininating for this place. We were seated lagoon side and never smelled sewage. I have mold allergies and my sinuses never bothered me, not while at waters edge nor inside listening to music. I ask that person who posted: “are you sure you were at Frenchy Ludos?”

This place is very romantic, lights strung in ribbons across the ceiling, good food but not traditional French fare. Still, it’s worth a visit.

I have been using Brave.com browser and Brave app for iphone all day. Seems really fast and they promise not to be selling your search data and all that stuff.

Just used it to find TTOL.

13 hours ago Indigo iBay, Pelican key, Beacon Hill or Red Pond [by Mbrott]
We had a place reserved in Beacon hill that fell through. Looking for pluses and minuses of the locations above.

Beacon is the most expensive for what you get

Pelican is nice but traffic around Billy Foyle Road

Indigo Bay traffic to and from Simpson bay? Remote?

Red Pond...kind of remote?

We are traveling the end of May...

thanks

Yesterday at 09:56 PM Sandwiches on the way to the beach [by JohnandBev]
Hi, will be staying in the Maho area [RI]

We often grabbed some sandwiches on the way to the beach.

Pre Irma when we stayed at RI used the store in Porto Cupecoy, but wondering about
Carrefour in Jordan Village, Monoprix just before Marigot, Super U and Petit Casino
While we have often shopped both Super U and Petit Casino, never looked if they had pre made sandwiches. Monoprix will be a first for us, seems convenient to Maho area.

Not keen on the Maho village store's subs

Note, not so sure on my planning, missing both Moon Splash and the Bucket regatta, oh well, it's all toes in the sand starting later next week
