CHRISTIANSTED – Black Enterprise magazine says that chef Digby Stridiron is “making St. Croix the culinary destination of the Caribbean.”

In a feature story posted today, Black Enterprise noted that Stridiron has served as the personal chef to celebrities like Vivica A. Fox and former NFL superstar Kerry Rhodes.

The St. Croix native is a U.S. Air Force veteran who has gone on the road with musical talents like Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj.

Former Labor Commissioner Albert Bryan Jr. posted on Instagram yesterday that “Balter St. Croix” was looking for line cooks, dishwashers, wait staff, barbacks, runners/bussers, front of house supervisor, floor manager, valet attendant, chief valet, security staff and hostesses at an address where Stridiron’s new restaurant will be in Christiansted (on Company Street nearest to Queen Cross Street).

Bryan’s Instagram post suggests that applicants to be cooks or dishwashers email: and that those wanting all other positions send an email to:

“The exciting new restaurant Balter is seeking highly-motivated individuals to embrace our concept of West Indian cuisine, craft cocktails, fine wine and Crucian hospitality,” the Instagram post says. “We’ll foster a family atmosphere, joining to give our guests an unforgettable experience.”

A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
