That special occasion with just the two of you or a small group, deserves a special place, such as a restored sugar mill with beautifully restored stonework (Sugar Mill) or a location on an exquisite bay (Little Dix Bay).

And the food, of course, is the result of years of preparation, the chef rising among many competitors to the top of the profession, especially in the Caribbean--who would not want to cook in Paradise?

This is elegant dining.

In fact, many of these chefs have appeared on the Discovery Channel's Great Chefs of the Caribbean. Richard Buttafuso of the Sugar Mill Hotel creatively combines the delicious Vietnamese spring roll with the traditional salt fish.with his international appetiser, Salt Fish Spring Rolls.

Suddenly pulling out a torch, Troy Smith of the private Necker Island Resort, "glazes" the sauce with its open flame, before sending his Crayfish Medallions with Oyster Sabayon to the table (see crayfish).

In addition, BVI chefs have had great success at the Caribbean "Olympics," with 7 Gold Medals won by the BVI Culinary Team one recent year.

Proper Attire? Here is the Attire at the Resort requested at Little Dix Bay: "During the daytime a cover-up and footwear are appropriate in the dining room and public areas. After sunset in the Pavilion gentlemen may wear dress shorts, a collared shirt and open shoes. Shorts, t-shirts, jeans, tennis shoes and beach sandals are not permitted. Ladies may wear suitable evening attire. During the winter season, from Christmas until Easter, we ask that gentleman to wear long slacks, a collared shirt and closed-toe shoes. At the Sugar Mill, throughout the year, gentlemen are required to wear long slacks, a collared shirt and closed-toe shoes. Jackets and ties are not necessary. Ladies may wear suitable evening attire."

Take a tour with us of the most elegant restaurants in the islands. Often at resorts, but not always: Peter Island, Little Dix Bay, the Bitter End, Biras Creek (this very icon for the Elegant Dining Tour is a picture of a dish set out at Biras Creek), The Clubhouse at Frenchman's Cay and, of course, the Sugar Mill restaurant.
