St. Barths, Caribbean – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
New York might be the crowded home of Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s culinary delights, but Eden Rock – St. Barths is offering gastronomes a scrumptious taste of the chef’s world-famous genius against a much more expansive paradise.
From May through July, the 34-room seaside resort is serving up a five-night Fabulous Feast package starring daily Jean-Georges samplings inspired by the chef’s famed ABC Kitchen and Spice Market back home. If backdrops of pristine beaches and glittering stars aren’t escape enough, the French chef’s Asian touches will transport guests to a whole new epicurean dimension. Basil and garlic flavors get a gourmet upgrade in a juicy lobster plate, and citrus dressing showcases the farm-focused freshness in a roasted carrot and avocado salad.
Gourmand travelers seeking a concentrated Jean-Georges experience can opt for the “We Love You” special, which sandwiches a sunset cocktail on the beach between five-course menus for lunch and dinner. By day, whet appetites with the radish and ginger tuna tartare and a truffle-fontina pizza; by night, sink into blissful oblivion with generous helpings of crispy sushi and sweet-and-sour lamb chops. For ultimate island comforts, pair the day of feasts with an exclusive takeover of the estate’s two villas—a 22,000-square-foot mega haven of pools, spas and other indulgences put together.
Fabulous Feast starts at around $4,009; We Love You starts at around $795 with wine pairing.
