    Re: News of the Day-11/29

    Riviera is in port, but I don’t think that Star Pride is going to make it today. Marine Traffic reports her to be in Palermo.

    Re: Beach restaurant in Lorient?

    I don’t know about ownership.

    Pre-Irma, they were associated with Maman out of NYC, at least for the restaurant. https://www.mamannyc.com/ I’m told that there is still an association.

    Re: Beach restaurant in Lorient?

    That is what I am told. And that section of Lorient Beach isn’t the best for swimming.
  4. Re: Happy Birthday, Monsieur Veuve Clicquot, aka KevinS!

    Thanks all! It was a great birthday.

    The restaurant in question was the Rooftop at L’Atelier Joël Robuchon. The table was perhaps the best in the house. The service was impeccable. My main was...

    Re: Beach restaurant in Lorient?

    The Tropical has been rebuilt as a larger hotel, with a larger restaurant. I think that the hotel is soft-open now, but the restaurant is still hotel guests only.

    My sources are on-island.

    Re: Beach restaurant in Lorient?

    I’m told that the location is where the ER pop-up was after Irma, and that it will be the beach restaurant for the new Tropical Hotel.
  7. Re: Caribbean Port Welcomes Six Cruise Ships for the First Time in 20 Months

    Good for them.

    Marine Traffic, cruise websites and Andy’s News of the Day show that there are very few cruise ships visiting St Barth.

    Re: Y’all be careful down there

    The decimal point is subtle. I should have written it as 8/10. It is point 8 inches, not 8 inches.

    Rain Coming?

    Only time will tell if this is something or nothing. 50mm is about 2 inches, 80mm is just over 3 inches, and 100mm is about 4 inches.

    Re: Booster Required

    Your math is about right. If the island population is about 10,000 then maybe closer to 4,000 without a PS than 5,000, but a significant number.

    Re: Best Breakfasts on the island

    Hôtel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf has a Sunday Brunch with a view over Gustavia harbor. It’s worth checking for weekdays too. Another option is L’Atellier Joël Robuchon, where I suggest a Rooftop table.
