When you live in St. Maarten, you know that great restaurants are commonplace here, we can enjoy some of the best food in the World any day of the week, but if you are in the mood for something special, let's talk about The Flavor Academy! This unique experience, and that's what it is "An Experience", is not to be missed. Their "Table One" concept, where the restaurant caters to only one table per evening is a refreshing innovation in the St. Maarten Cuisine Scene. A Passion Project of the husband and wife team, Paul, The Mixologist and Kristin, The Chef, opened in late 2020 to immediate rave reviews. Indeed getting a reservation takes about a month due to the high demand. The bespoke tasting menu is created just for your party of between 6 to 12 diners, your likes, dislikes, and dietary restrictions are all considered, you can even have specialty drinks or wine paired to compliment each course. The location is both centrally located and off-the-beaten-path in the Simpson bay area. Beautifully decorated and comfortable, the serene environment compliments the excellent service and offers a feeling of chic luxury, without being stuffy or overly froufrou. Our Eat St. Maarten Dinner Club enjoyed an excellent evening there in February and we all agree that this is our Top Pick for 2021. In addition to bespoke tasting dinners, and as the name suggests, The Flavor Academy also offers a variety of Cooking classes, Wine and Spirit Tastings, and more.
