Started the morning with our usual ham, cheese and egg croissant from chef Mahokid

Caught some early morning rays and with the clouds coming in decided to venture to Gran Case for some lolo lunch
Made it to Mt Hope estate and decided it was best to turn around because of the flooding and very poor visibility

Orange fever was our next choice
Some cream cheese stuffed jalapenos were shared followed by a med rare burger with mushrooms, onions and goat cheese and mahi mahi
the rum shots were smooth
JC took the day off because of a limited lunch crowd

We cancelled our La Villa reservations because of the weather and hopped over to the village to try a fairly new restaurant Le Petite Bistro
Owned and run by a young lovely couple with the previous head chef from Atelier across the way
They feature Lyonnaise French cuisine which offered some different menu items than the norm and all the plates going by looked very good

We shared the reiliettes of the day which was tuna and mahi mahi
I would compare this dish similar to a very good tuna fish salad

my wife ordered the burrata salad while I stuck to the plan of trying not to order my usual choice and tried the oeufs cocotte
This was a petite casserole pot baked with egg, mushroom and bacon

MIss SXM went off course and ordered a beef special with arugula, sun dried tomatoes and parmesan cheese
not sure what cut of meat it was but it was sliced thin, moist and very tasty.
The leftover meal made a nice accompaniment to todays lunch at home

I ordered a seafood dish that reminded be of a bouillabaisse with a not rich lobster base

Stuffed, we shared the profiteroles filled with ice cream and topped with chocolate sauce

Looks wonderful! What about that mojito? Was it frozen? Was it sweet? I make a kind of mojito at home and have tried them a couple of places on SXM and found them too sweet for my taste.

I’m really enjoying your posts and pictures.

That breakfast sandwich and dessert looks delicious!

We’re planning on going to Orient Village for dinner in early September. It’s been MANY years since we’ve done that.

I hope the weather improves.

Yes we request it frozen
Usually we would request it on the sweet side but since losing some weight we have adjusted to less sugar necessary

I find many restaurants to be very similar and since we eat out every night, it is nice to find some different menu choices

There are plenty of restaurants to chose from
Presently L'Atelier is closed for vacation but may be open when you visit if you enjoy a great cut of beef

While not reviewed often, Les Galets across the main street from Orient in Orient gardens is highly recommended
Only open on the weekend and a chef's choice menu with a awesome cheese cart

That petite casserole pot looks good or maybe I’m just craving that stack of fresh bread it’s served with. My compliments to chef Mahokid on the ham egg and cheese croissant…… simple yet elegant presentation!

Please keep the pictures coming and enjoy!

I hate to ask but….how’s the water situation in Orient Village? Any scheduled or unscheduled outages?

I guess what I should do is to request my mojitos on the sour side. We used to go out every night, but we just can't eat like that anymore.

Carry on!!
