    Pressoir was one of our favorites since its opening. That being said, have not been back to SXM since discovering SBH so the other places are all new to me. Good for them getting such a nice write up. I have fond memories from when Saint Martin was known as the Gourmet Capitol of the Caribbean.

    Andy, when was your last visit there?

    Amy, you made me think and then check the last time I ate a meal in Saint Martin - 1998!

    I am not sure. We island hopped to the airport in Grand Case to visit friends staying in Anse Marcel, I think their hotel was then called the Sonesta. But it was a while ago. We dined at Bistro Caraibe in the town of Grand Case and it was excellent. And the same two brothers, Amory and Tibor were running it…the restaurant on the corner of the main drag with the lobster tank out front across from the then called Fish Pot.

    We had an unplanned visit about 10 years ago when storms canceled our US flight home and we had to vacate our SBH villa. We stayed at Mary’s Boon a couple of nights. Had dinner at Pressoir and Spiga.
