Rue Happy Bay, Saint Martin

Book ahead if you want a table at Blanchard’s, one of Anguilla’s mainstay restaurants. Opened in 1994 by Bob and Melinda Blanchard, this charming spot serves excellent food in a romantic setting. Set back from Meads Bay and built in a traditional West Indian style, the dining room opens onto a beautiful garden with a babbling fountain and soft lights. White tablecloths, candles and the soft crashing of the waves complete the sophisticated island vibe. The owners, who previously produced a line of gourmet salad dressings, relocated from Vermont to pursue their fantasy of life in the Caribbean. Melinda mans the kitchen and Bob, a wine enthusiast, acts as sommelier and maitre’d. Blanchard’s menu features fresh seafood with Caribbean and Asian influences such as crispy mahi mahi with coconut, lime and ginger, roasted Anguilla lobster and spicy jerk chicken with grilled cinnamon-rum bananas.
