Restaurant Month Pick Of The Week: Thatch & Barrel
My final Restaurant Month Pick Of The Week will take you to Thatch & Barrel at the stunning Pedro St. James Castle. Sitting high above the sea, this idyllic venue is perfect for any occasion, whether it be a wedding, brunch or a casual meal.
For Restaurant Month, they are offering a two-course lunch (CI$25) and three-course dinner (CI$35) menu that highlight Caribbean flavours and ingredients. There is something for everyone with seafood, vegetarian and meat options in each course. With both menus sounding so delicious it was hard for me to choose when to go, but ultimately we decided to go for a weekend lunch and it did not disappoint!
For our starters we chose the Market Catch Ceviche with homemade cassava chips and the Local Pepper Jelly Fried Brie, which hit all the right notes especially if you’re a cheese lover like me.
My husband’s main course was the mouthwatering Bluff Beef Bap, where a hefty amount of Cayman Style Beef is paired with grilled peppers, caramelised onions and melted mozzarella on a soft bun.
My main was the Spicy Seafood Pasta that was loaded with lobster, mussels and shrimp in a light tomato, garlic and white wine sauce. I loved that they included seasoning pepper in a lot of these dishes, including my pasta, because we all know how much flavour that one ingredient can bring to a meal!
Note that this lunch may not come with a dessert, but it does include a soda, juice or fruit punch.
I’d highly recommend taking a drive this week to visit Thatch & Barrel for a fantastic meal in a beautiful setting before the month runs out!
