St. Thomas’ biggest culinary event, Taste the Nations, will take place from 5-9 p.m., Saturday, March 16, at Virgin Islands Montessori School & Peter Gruber International Academy (VIMSIA). The 10th annual food event will feature St. Thomas’ best restaurants, music and international dance performances.
Current participating restaurants include: Amalia Café, Ritz Carlton, Moe’s Fresh Food Market, Raw, Sunset Grille, My Brother’s Workshop, The Galley, Hull Bay Hideaway, Grand Palazzo Club, Dem Belly Full, Love Livin’, RooT 42 Bar and Grille, and many more. Community members and their families are invited to attend. Tickets will be available at the door: $30 for adults, $15 for students and children 5 and under eat for free.
Professional chefs and others with culinary expertise were invited to prepare a mouth-watering dish from anywhere around the world that highlights a specific country or world region. Those attending Taste the Nations will have the opportunity to enjoy unlimited taste-sized samples. It will be an elegant but casual evening for the entire St. Thomas-St. John community.
All proceeds will benefit “VIMSIA Without Borders Educational Program,” which seeks to provide opportunities for students in the Peter Gruber International Academy (PGIA) to become more aware of their place in the wider world through international education and experiences.
