    Zion St-Barth (Ex-Hideaway) Opens on Monday 6/17

    Zion St-Barth, the new restaurant in the former Hideaway space, opens on Monday, June 17, at 19:00. I have been unable to find menu information anywhere, but the presence of a Chef's Table on Wednesday through Saturday nights tells me that it's very different from Hideaway.

    The hours are posted on their web page as Lunch 12:00 - 14:00 Monday through Friday, and Dinner 19:00 - 22:00 Monday - Saturday. The Chef's Table hours posted on their web page are 19:00 - 22:00 Wednesday through Saturday, by advance telephone reservation only.

    They have a presence on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The website is https://www.zion-sbh.com It is best viewed in Safari on iOS, or you can get deeper into the website with other browsers by bypassing the home page and going to https://www.zion-sbh.com/reserve-a-table

    From the website:

    The Chef

    Jean-Baptiste Piard : Fare for sharing inspired by his extensive travel.

    From Touraine (where he comes from) to Saint Barthélémy, by way of Canada and French Polynesia, Jean-Baptiste Piard is a passionate chef with finely honed talent and creativity.

    After cutting his teeth at L’Auberge du Bon Laboureur in Chenonceaux (recipient of a Michelin star), Jean Baptiste Piard headed for Tahiti to become sous-chef at Le Coco’s, one of the best restaurants in French Polynesia.

    He followed this up with a noteworthy stint at l’Hôtel Intercontinental Tahiti where he won the prestigious title of Best Chef in Polynesia in 2013.

    Chef Piard continued to navigate his own course according to his culinary desires, which brought him to St Barth, where he fulfilled the role of Chief Executive [Executive Chef?] at l’Hôtel Christopher, never losing sight of his dream: to open his own restaurant.

    Today, he is at the helm of Zion’s restaurant where he strives to provide you with the experience of a refined, warm and friendly bistro cuisine shaped by his outlandish inspirations, encounters and flavours.
    And, if you wish to enjoy a unique experience, why not take your place at the Chef’s Table for an immersive culinary adventure close to the kitchen, to the great delight of your eyes and taste buds.

    Can't wait to hear about this place. We are coming end of July / first week of August so i will be on the lookout for reviews prior. We loved the Hideaway so much for first night pizza! Great location as well.

    I assume the chef's table retains the iconic "view of the carpark" ?

    Looks like a beautiful kitchen, which must be very important to the proprietor / chef.

    Cass . . . I'm assuming that the "chef's table" refers to a communal dining table where the chef serves whatever he feels like preparing for people sitting there -- kind of like a table d'hôte. Is that what you're thinking?

    Stopped at Zion last night for an after dinner drink. Met & had a long, lovely conversation with chef / owner, “JB.” He’s charming and extremely thoughtful about his restaurant. Menu looks wonderful (there is a good amount of fresh fish available), & decor is stunning. Lunch service will be added a week from Monday (July 1). I think JB has a big hit in this gracious new spot.

    It looks like Zion will begin opening for lunch tomorrow, 6/24. From FB:

    "From tomorrow, we welcome you also at noon, from Monday to Friday.
    Bistro atmosphere at the Zion "Saint Barth" for your lunches!"

    I wonder if it will be the same menu?

    Interesting, Kevin, because owner/chef JB told me on Thursday that lunch would only start on Monday, July 1. Looks like they moved up the date.
