Le Petibonum

Crayfish with Creole Sauce

Le Petibonum Review

Billed as an artisan restaurant, Le Petibonum is a marriage of French island funkiness and Miami's South Beach. It's a one-of-a-kind in Martinique. So is charismatic owner Guy Ferdinand, a tall Martinican with curly, blond-streaked hair who has made this a destination restaurant in the north coast's tiny town of Carbet. Smack on the beach, it's an ideal stopover if you're visiting nearby St-Pierre. Remember to wear your swimsuit. Kick off your shoes and order a perfect mojito. You can lounge on coral rubber chaises, shaded by umbrellas, and be sprayed intermittently with a gentle, cool mist. The appetizers—blue marlin tartare or fried flying fish right from the Carbet shore—are appropriate for a feet-in-the-sand restaurant. For mains, the signature dish is jumbo crayfish in a vanilla cream sauce flambeed with rhum vieux and it is decadently rich. There's lobster on Friday nights, when local bands play. It's a scene.
