It’s been four months since Hurricane Irma and Maria hit St. John and the Virgin Islands, and every day brings new changes. January has been particularly exciting with the restoration of limited power and cell service in both Cruz Bay and Coral Bay, the reopening of most Virgin Islands National Park beaches, and the return of small numbers of tourists to the island.

For us at St. John Catering and Mathayom Private Chefs the new year has brought new opportunities for growth and expansion. Not only are we back doing what we love, catering private events and putting out amazing food through the Little Olive food truck, but we are also taking over the restaurant formerly known as the Fish Trap in Cruz Bay. Once renovated the space will open as a new bar and dining attraction in Cruz Bay and will be available to rent for private events in the future. So stay tuned in the next few months for updates on the restaurant’s renovation and new announcements from us as we move into our new space.

Also to our customers (both past and future), island friends, family and everyone that’s lent a hand in our recovery we want to say thank you for all your support; we truly appreciate it and we look forward to being able to continue serving the Virgin Island community.
