The restaurant opens its doors to the public at 5 pm tomorrow, with the hope of capturing the hearts and taste buds of persons in the immediate and wider communities.

Albion Stapleton, the new business’s spokesperson, said that the restaurant, located just off the Pembroke bridge, will provide contemporary Caribbean cuisine and will feature a wide assortment of meats, prepared by internationally recognized chef with 20 years of culinary training, Stapleton’s step dad Gary Browne.

Stapleton says that Browne would be ably assisted by his wife, who is Stapleton’s mother, Enid Stapleton-Browne, in the family-run enterprise.

He said that the bar would also provide a variety of beverages, with emphasis placed on exotic cocktails and recipes.

The United Kingdom expatriate indicated that his family hopes to add a westernized flair to the local environment, which he believes would raise the standard that Vincentians deserve, but may not be receiving, especially in the food and beverage industry.

He noted that the facility, which can accommodate up to 150 persons inside and outside, is located in an ideal area, which is expanding and becoming more thriving, with the establishment of a number of other landmarks, including the Buccament Bay Resort, Greaves Marketplace, and other establishments.

Following tomorrow’s grand opening, the restaurant will be open from 12 noon to 10 pm on Mondays to Thursdays; 12 noon to 12 midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, and on Sundays from 11am to 8pm.

Persons attending the opening will be treated to sample selections of items on the menu, as well as finger foods and entertainment.(JJ)
