In the months since Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria hit St. John and the Virgin Islands in September of 2017, every day brings new changes. 2018 has been an exciting year with the restoration of power and cell service from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay and the reopening of most roads and beaches in the Virgin Islands National Park. Tourist have been returning to the island and every day more and more businesses are reopening their doors.

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 weddings on island, but we are also opening Lucky Chops in the spring of 2018, a laid back lounge with Asian tapas and creative cocktails in the space formerly occupied by the Fish Trap Restaurant in Cruz Bay. With its spacious outdoor and indoor seating areas Lucky Chops will be the go to place in town to relax and grab a drink with friends, and the space will be available to rent for private events in the future. So stay tuned in the next few weeks for updates on renovations at Lucky Chops and its grand opening date!

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.
