Current Cut American Cafe
Wow, was surprised to learn Current Cut American Cafe went out of business.
They sure didn't last long. I think less than 90 days in business.
Oh my gosh! I was hoping they would be able to last through the slow season, but my wish apparently was not granted. It was located in the shopping center by Marina Market, Welcome Home, etc. Their Elvis sandwich was so good, and their prices were pretty reasonable. I have to say that each time I went in, there were not many people. I think many people didn't know about it opening.
My other new favorite place "The Place to Be" in Frenchtown is closed too.
Sorry, but..."down by the public ramp next to the docks". What ramp, what docks, which part of the island? Was that also in Red Hook? I now live in STX, but I have interests in STT, Red Hook, so I'm interested. I have friends on STT, so I usually hear about stuff, but this is all news to me.
Juanita....sorry look in the earlier posts.:P I stated that it was in Frenchtown. So to be exact...in Frenchtown next to the public boat ramp (which is next to the shipping docks). Again, it was a good little hole in the wall place. I liked their food, but also liked that our waitress Mary always had a smile, and the cook, Baker, was a cool guy too. They had a huge burger and fries for $10 bucks. Baker would come up with some good local type stuff like Conch chili.
Was that the place that has been pretty much everything in the last 5 years or so? It was some kind of margarita place, something "lechon" bbq, something else? Where the Leylon Steed docks, by Black Hawk shipping? Talk about a location with a curse! I wish I could remember what it was years ago, when it was popular. We used to dingy in from Elephant Bay ,and meet our friends, and always had a good time.
When it was Gregorie East, it thrived best. Then the chef form 1829 took over and made one side Wok on Water and the other I think remained Gregorie East. It all went downhill form there. It's more of a watering hole now. That will always survive, once the kitchen is involved, it goes south!
american cafe beat zizzlers by a few weeks....a real shame because zizzlers was really great...
zizzlers closed due to owner family stateside issue....WAPA bill and other unfriendly stuff delayed original opening and they blew big $$$ on marketing too early....Parrots Cove is a stinker.....they wont last...
I was sorry to see Current Cut go out business. Small business should thrive and we support small business.
The meals we had wasn't all that great which surprised us as they are the cooks for the Yacht Club! I chalked up our bad experience to a bad day and thought we would give it another try this fall only to be told they are closed. At least they have the Yacht Club to fall back on.
Restaurants are tough, tough, tough, even in the best and friendliest business environments. That's why we all tend to be very "realistic" when giving advise to people, on here, who want to come down and open a beach bar!
Went by the new deli at 5 corners Saturday at lunch time. Closed! Now, I don't think they are out of business, but if they aren't open Sat. lunch, well it's probably a matter of time. Odd though, the closed sign was on the door, which was wide open, so we walked in and yelled hello. Nobody there.
I was under the impression that Parrots Cove was doing well,they seemed to be packed at Jump-up. Of course it could have just been the festival,but when I wander down there,there is always people there. It"s such a good location! I can't believe it's gone belly up (the location) so many times. But I do see the trend,here one day,gone the next. Is it locals people trying to make a go of it? Or is it statesiders coming w/big dreams? because if that's the case then it obvious-new statesiders don't have a CLUE what they're getting into here w/WAPA,health,etc. so I don't know what to do really other than patronize. I went there one time,drink was great,had a slider (or 6) it tasted just like hamburger;as it should have.
