Ads trumpet that this restaurant is "where the islanders dine." Indeed they have since the Robinson family started selling takeout from its kitchen in 1965. This favorite overlooks a garden with a cheery tropic motif. The West Indies breakfast and themed lunch buffets are legendary spreads. Local food (curried goat, oxtail with broad beans, turtle soup, and heavy cake) is authentic, hearty, and cheap. Pricier global dishes range from chop suey to fine Indian vegetarian
options like samosas and masala dal (lentils simmered with green chilies) to Eisenhower-era standards like bacon-wrapped filet mignon in red wine sauce.
