Dinner at Vista Mare – St John US Virgin Islands

Dinner at Vista Mare – St John US Virgin Islands
Every trip to St John I really look forward to eating at some of my favorite restaurants as well as finding new places. This trip I discovered Vista Mare, an Italian inspired trattoria located on top of Wharfside Village in Cruz Bay. 
The views are fantastic and I had a great seat at the bar overlooking the bay.

The staff at Vista Mare is super and I came up early to get a seat before the happy hour ended and the dinner crowd showed up.

I started with the antipasti and a great glass of red from Montepulciano. I felt like I had been transported to Tuscany!

Dinner: The Citrus Marinated Kale Salad. 
Kale, squid, capers, and pesto all mixed with a light citrus dressing. This salad was fantastic. In fact I enjoyed it so much I stopped in another evening and ordered the exact same thing.
Delicious!
