A New Gourmet Restaurant at Frangipani   Site Map   Click to enlarge pictures

[Claude Janin - the chef] Frangipani Beach Resort now has a brand new gourmet restaurant, with a french chef and yummy desserts. The new restaurant is on the waterfront of Meads Bay and the chef is Claude Janin, who has extensive experience, including work on Statia and most recently in Washington DC. Mary Ann and I were joined by Larry and Gretchen Shaw of Bellevue Washington, whom we met at the Computer Club. We tried the lobster bisque (veloute), the truffle and scallop ravioli, the tuna, the Anguillian Red Mullet (which is actually a Goat Fish), crayfish with marsala wine and the veal. The deserts were exotic and incredible (see pictures below of the chocolate sushi, black and white cake, and frozen souffle of tropical fruits).
The menu here is out of date. Check their web page.

We went back to Frangipani on the day of the boat races because they were having a barbecue. Have you ever had Anguillian barbecue ribs and chicken done by a French chef? It changes the whole concept. Mary Ann suggests they make it a weekly event.
