Aye Aye, Chef RobbyWednesday, March 04, 2015
Lunch was quite the catch last Friday afternoon, dining harbour-side at the Caribbean Pirates Restaurant in the St Lucian capital of Castries. The immensely popular seafood-centric eatery is owned and operated by Robby Skeete, a tam-wearing, dreadlocked chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America.
Overlooking the island's harbour where mega-sized cruise liners originating from Europe, the United States and elsewhere around the globe drop temporary anchor, the second-floor restaurant at La Place Caranage is frequented by both locals and transient seaborne vacationers. The ebullient Chef Robby welcomed our 30-plus dining party to the upper-level eatery that, while a tad slow in turning tables, presented a well-received menu of familiar offerings such as crayfish and curried shrimp, and also featured such seafood delicacies as snails and sea urchins, yes, sea eggs!
We take a peek at last weekend's seafood-centric lunch where Campari picked up the cheque.
