Restaurant Week returns to the United States Virgin Islands this fall featuring a selection of culinary experiences on St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas, the Department of Tourism announced Tuesday.
In its press release, D.O.T. said that the culinary extravaganza, known as Dine VI, will be staged from October 27 to November 12, 2016, on all three islands, building on the success of the inaugural event held on St. Croix last year.
“Food aficionados, gourmands as well as culinary, travel and lifestyle journalists are invited to the U.S. Virgin Islands this fall to enjoy the many delights of our local restaurant scene,” said D.O.T. Commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Doty, noting that the two-week span “allows us to fully celebrate our culinary diversity.”
Patrons are invited to dine at a wide selection of restaurants offering special prix fixe menus and experience events such as a farm-to-table culinary educational session, reef responsible fish fry, and the popular food truck festival. Visitors and local foodies alike can indulge in traditional fare and savor dishes made with locally sourced ingredients, according to the release.
Hotel reservations for Dine VI can be booked on Visit USVI where travelers can receive 20 percent off their hotel stay and a dinner pass for two guests.
The Dine VI offer is valid for travel from October 25 to November 15, and is also bookable directly with participating hotels utilizing the booking code DINEVI16. Guests will receive their dinner pass upon arrival.
