    I know, I know, it's like an obstacle course wherever you go, but I am pleased to report that the massive project by the Eden Rock looks about finished so that should help!

    I’ll elaborate in two ways, Cass. 1. Diana’s description of a festive evening ambience set an expectation for me that wasn’t satisfied. Kind of like going to a film when the reviews have been over the top . . . and being let down in seeing it. In this regard, I generally find quiet restaurant venues to be very much to my liking, especially when the settings & service are exceptional (Le Sereno comes to mind). In this experience, though the setting can be said to be “breathtaking,” & the luncheon place-setting was attractive, it still was service (albeit very nice) of the bartender cum waiter. (I haven’t been to Fouquet’s in Paris, but its reputation belies Sunday's lunch experience.) 2. While I didn’t mention it earlier, in view of your query, I’ll add that one of our items,...

    . . . following in your lead, Diana, I’m enjoying the noodles & duck tonight. Delicious, but next time I’ll wear a bib — splashes of the broth don’t look good on my shirt! (When finished with noodles, veggies, & duck, I got a spoon and enjoyed every last drop of the broth!) My first course was the foie gras — REALLY delicious. No GF bread, so I used lettuce leaves as wraps for bites of this very special item. Wine . . . a very smooth, mildly hearty Burgundy. Vintage of 2014 almost gone . . . 2017 is next in line. A nice size crowd . . . probably about half full, “socially distanced” — apparently in accordance with French rules. I’d guess that it’s 50/50, Americans & French visitors. Staff members are rigidly adherent to masks . . . and only “air hugs” & fist bumps. ...

    Dennis, I’m not quite following what it was precisely that wasn’t satisfactory. Seems like a positive review other than melancholy ambiance from lack of fellow diners. Which I have no problem understanding given all the rules and regulations on French jurisdictions.

    ROUTES BLOCKED IN SAINT-JEAN ET SALINE BETWEEN OCTOBER 27 AND 30 10/26/2020 The Collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy informs you that concrete work for the road network is planned on track n ° 57 from the crossroads of Creole in St-Jean towards Saline. The road will therefore be closed in both directions of traffic (except for site hazards which may lead to a modification of the schedule): - Tuesday, October 27, 2020 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., - Wednesday October 28, 2020 from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., - Thursday, October 29, 2020 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    This miami option is the only one that seems to make sense to me for those traveling farther. Being on the west coast, our travel times have varied A LOT based on missed connections etc. Maybe we can consider a trip if we stay over in Miami on the way there. I think for a family however, only staying 7 days is the way to do it. Just due to all the costs of testing if you stay longer. Not clear what will happen to our various credits with SB Commuter etc for our missed trip this year. I think we have 1 year to use them.

    I would agree. As much as it may be difficult for those of us who are passionate about this topic to bite our tongue, there is truly no reason to engage someone else unless you are the owner of a business they are inside of. If we're truly all concerned about our well being and the well being of those around us, the best thing we can do is minimize or eliminate interaction with someone not wearing a mask properly/at all. You never know who you're dealing with, and potentially putting yourself in a position to get into an argument about masks only serves to spew more moisture particles into the air and put others (and yourself) at risk. Whenever I see someone not wearing a mask or wearing one improperly, I make an extra effort to stay away from them. If it is within a business and...

    You know, we cancelled our November trip due to the complicated travel restrictions and I said that I would be enjoying St Barths vicariously through this forum but its going to be harder than I thought! Cut to me crying out loud, copious tears. That menu is exactly what I would order. :laughing-cry:

    At the risk of writing a message that offers an opinion that is contrary to Didier’s highly gratifying dinner experience (https://www.sbhonline.com/forums/showthread.php/99853-Carl-Gustaf-opening-night?highlight=Fouquet), I’ll offer a bit of commentary on my luncheon experience there. The difference in experience may be attributable to lunch vs. dinner. The setting can be said to be breathtaking . . . exactly as so many of us recall from the Hotel’s past years of “glory.” The time with my companion, however, was prominently marked by the fact that we were the O-N-L-Y guests. From 12:15 to 2:30. Sunday afternoon. (This photo, BTW, was taken as we were leaving, when tables had been set for dinner with tablecloths . . . not part of the luncheon setting.) Nonetheless, elegant...

    Lisa Wingate does it again. The author of “Before We Were Yours” is a wonderful storyteller. In this book, she weaves a tale, set after the Civil War, rooted in the desire of slaves to be reunited with loved ones who were sold prior to Emancipation. The tale involves three women who set forth on a journey and is interspersed with the more contemporary story featuring a young teacher who more than a century later finds herself in the Deep South. And I shall say no more. It is a compelling read.

    Le Repaire became our first night place when we spent the initial night in the Sunset (next door) and will do both again next May. By the way, there is a "Le Repaire des Rebelles et des Emigrés" sign above some of the front tables. I never noticed it until the waiter pointed it out.

    I messaged the airport on face book on october 13. I asked them if covid tests were required for persons coming from st. barths if they were americans who had only been on st. barths for seven days and were only in transit going back to the states. their reply this morning said we don't care if you are only on st. barths for one day, you can travel to sxm from sbh if you are in transit without a covid test but we will require you to wear a mask at all times.
