This très sympa nod to St. Kitts' French heritage is aptly titled "the good life." The cozy antiques-strewn lobby–bar leads to the semi-enclosed garden dining patio. Everything brims with brio from the brioches baked on-site to Brel and Aznavour on the soundtrack (accompanied by tree frogs). Nantes-born Fabien Richard deftly executes bistro fare at fair prices. You could feast on appetizers alone: salad chabichoux (warm goat cheese, lardons, mesclun) or
velvety tomato bavarois with prosciutto. But opt for the bargain $41 three-course prix fixe; main courses might include salmon with aniseed emulsion, duck "steaklet" with green- and black-peppercorn sauce, or rack of lamb in thyme jus. Even the old-fashioned veggies delight, including smashing potatoes dauphinoise. Save room for an unimpeachable peach sable (tart) with crème anglaise. A few minor complaints include: mosquitoes on still nights, limited wine selection, and the occasional overcooked if tasty entrée.
