East End / Redhook:
The town of Red Hook is just about 1/2 mile from the condo and boasts many restaurants, shops, bars, marinas and of course the Ferry dock where you can catch a ferry over to St John or any of our other neighboring islands. Red Hook has 2 grocery stores. A more modern "Whole Food" style store named Moe's is right across from Senor Frogs. You will find plenty of gourmet foods, beer, liquor and a large selection of wine and champagne in the upper level wine cellar. If you prefer a larger selection and variety the Food Mart is short drive out side of Red Hook. Food Mart is a bit less expensive and includes a Boar's Head Deli and a great selection of meats and cheeses.
The island of St. Thomas has a growing "Foodie" culture, including now offering a walking food and culture tour. Menus for other local restaurants are located inside the condo or we would be happy to recommend some our favorite places!
