St. Thomas' Best Restaurants: One of the island's poshest restaurants, it inhabits a charming Caribbean house-like structure with twinkly hilltop views of Charlotte Amalie harbor below. Its pasture fed Angus beef wins high praise, but the kitchen also has a flair with seafood. The Banana Tree filet combines both: shrimp and filet mignon with asparagus and béarnaise sauce. Artistic touches embellish fresh product such as the tangerine seared salmon and zinfandel braised pork shank with horseradish risotto. Side dishes such as parmesan dusted zucchini misto and goat cheese glazed mashed potatoes threaten to upstage the entrees. Definitely order a basket of the house bread, a crispy homemade ciabatta loaf baked with garlic and served with creamy gorgonzola dip.
