My wife and I were in St. Lucia for a vacation and I wanted to put together a dinner for a very special occasion. We arrived to the island late in the evening and ate a fabulous light dinner at Trios sister restaurant. After dinner I was able to meet Chef Joel to see if I could coordinate a special dinner for the next night. Chef Joel and I met the next day and the menu Chef Joel created would rival any I have had at a four star New York City Restaurant.
The appetizers of jerked lobster Caesar Salad had a beautiful island flare and the coconut shrimp were the best I had ever tasted. Light battered in an egg wash then dipped in fresh sweet coconut from St. Lucia and fried to perfection.
The main course was a tasty and tender piece of meat with a rub of intoxicating island spices served on a bed of julienned sweet vegetables, a side of sautéed Dasheen Croquets along with a service of four different sauces…. Each sauce better than the previous but all so good you had to try them again… and again.
Chef Joel had pastry Chef Antonio prepared a plate of desserts that stood up to the meal we had just finished. Flourless Chocolate Cake, Passion Fruit Mousse and a lovely Basil Crème Brulee’ were all mouth-watering. We wished we had room for seconds.
Our waiter Kamal was polite (as is the entire island) and very professional. To make the meal even more special both Chef Joel and Chef Antonio each came out and described their creations to us.
Words have not been coined that can adequately express how enjoyable Chef Joel made our meal at Trios. The food excellent, the service excellent, but in the end they just made us feel very special on a very special evening. Go to the restaurant… enjoy the people and the food… You will not regret it.
