Carol or Eric can you make this a new thread? Thank you only on my second cup of coffee
It never gets old walking through Tortuga restaurant to grab a bite to eat and a refreshing drink at the Driftwood Bar bar in Maho The craziness was going on as a ship was in port, besides watching the planes, watching the "cruisers" is sometimes just as entertaining It is almost illegal to not order the rum punch or a frozen BBC My wife wondered where the former bartender is working, I believe she was Venezuelan and was a knockout always showing her asset, last I saw her she was working on the boardwalk
Anyon eknow where she is?
we shared fried calamari, my wife had another chicken shawarma, while I took care of my one hamburger on the island fix maybe not the best burger on the island but it hit the spot the shawarma was tasty and big enough for leftovers for lunch a good mix hung out at the bar Always enjoy the short walk to chill and enjoy lunch
Pretty sure in all our trips we have never traveled the 20 minutes ride to Emilio's for dinner it is located on bush road a few minutes from Mark's only three circles away from RI in Maho the restaurant is located in an old sugar boiling plantation Norm (owner) greets all tables and pardoned himself for being short as he was going home to his wife but he did chat with us for quite a while as we share some similar interests we were still in good hands as his niece was looking over the restaurant
They have a long, long list of specialty drinks and i choose the last one on the list the pornstar martini i have enjoyed this at Sublime and this version was equally as good sans the shot of Prosecco on the side (it's a smooth cocktail) MLW had the usual mojito on the sweet side
Emilio's offers a $56 three course price fix with a few surcharges on such items as Filet, Short ribs
my wife started with the goat cheese and beet salad, this is something I make at home but it was a nice light start to the meal I tried a menu addition of Wagyu tar tar which was a bit different in that the beef was not raw, but nevertheless very tasty
another standby for my wife is risotto and tonight her main course was served with about seven good sized shrimp, best risotto so far as it was nice and creamy and on the risotto itself on the lighter side i took our servers recommendation and selected the house specialty of short ribs i was not mislead as a generous portion of fork tender meat was served over mashed beets as good as our entrees were, we stopped midway to save room for desserts
Besides cheese, my wife's favorite dessert is carrot cake and Emilio's version was very moist with the cream cheese icing on the side I took our servers suggestion an ordered the panna cotta which I am almost always disappointed with when i have it Tonight it was served with a side of warm chocolate and when poured over, renewed my faith that it can be a good choice
The restaurant is beautiful, the service was gentile and graceful while we enjoyed a relaxing meal My wife my the choice this evening and hit it on the nail we look forward to a return visit next year
Emilio's does offer a sunday brunch buffet which looks very good for a cloudy Sunday or get together with friends

Elaine, Thank you. I think of you everytime we drive over to Cupecoy.
We are pretty much winging it tonight after 16 nights of full out eating. Pizza Italy is on the plan but will need to enjoy a cocktail at Astra. Of course my wife will be surprised as I think Melina liked my wife more than me
