Today, I had the opportunity to sit down with Chef Lamar. He’s a local chef who is crafting together farm to table dishes at Ciboné, which is a restaurant located in Frederiksted on the West End of St. Croix. His passion for local culture and food was evident in sharing with me how his goal has always been to return to his birthplace to serve and be amongst the community that he loves. It’s a community that nourished and nurtured him and now, he’s giving back.
I love bearing witness to stories like Lamar’s. It’s no doubt, inspiring but it’s also wonderful to understand this beautiful cycle that our little rock can produce. St. Croix can be found in Lamar’s thoughtfully prepared dishes like the one I enjoyed for Sunday brunch. I feasted on an omelette featuring local eggs, veggies and lobster. Land and sea. It’s a perfect gathering of St. Croix abundance on a plate. Soft, fluffy eggs wrapped sweet succulent lobster with ribbons of local greens to lend both color and substance. We enjoyed our meal alfresco on their outdoor dining patio and while the restaurant is located centrally within Frederiksted town, it was tucked back into a quiet alcove with the delicious Caribbean breeze sweeping through and the palm trees providing shade.
