A Floridian Chef brings his unique seafood concept to a new St. Lucia restaurant, Soufriére
Snapper Tiradito, Lionfish Ceviche and Wahoo Sashimi are a few of the new seafood
dishes served at the Anse Chastanet Resort’s Treehouse restaurant near Soufriére,
St. Lucia. The novel menu for the new St. Lucia restaurant, titled Balawoo, for the Creole name of a small local fish, embraces a sea-to-plate philosophy in concert with local fishermen.
The menu comes to life with the help of Chef Allen Susser, a consultant to the Caribbean property who ran his self-named Chef Allen’s for more than 20 years in Aventura, Florida.
Other popular choices for this new St. Lucia restaurant include a whole fish of the day roasted in a banana leaf and, during the island’s lobster season from August through February, Grilled Local Spiny Lobster with Passion Fruit Butter. Additionally, guests staying at the resort who come back with their own catch after a day of charter sports fishing can get their fish deliciously prepared by Treehouse chefs.
