CHRISTIANSTED — St. Croix residents will now have another choice in fine dining now that Fusions restaurant is scheduled to open on Monday.

According to the owners of the restaurant who spoke to Chris Hanley Virgin Islands Real Estate, “fusions will specialize in small plates from around the world with a menu featuring dishes from England to Australia and the Caribbean.”

“Island favorites from Trinidad, Guam and the Philippines are included on the sneak peek menu on the restaurant’s website,” the restaurant said. “They shy away from using the term ‘tapas’ to define the international small plates they’ll serve at ‘fusions,’ as that term is technically exclusive to Spanish food.”

Fusions is located on Route 66 in the space that used to be The Pickled Greek (across from Pearl B. Larsen Elementary School near Tide Village, just east of Christiansted.

After The Pickled Greek closed in August of 2016, Chris Mitchell took over the space.  According to the fusions Facebook page, Chris and Melissa Mitchell will make-up the culinary team while Kaila Mitchell will act as general manager.

A friends and family tasting is happening this week, the Chris Hanley website said.

“The owners of fusions hope to open prior to their May 1 goal, pending successful inspections,” they said.

Kitchen hours will be as follows (bar to be open later):

Monday – Friday: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Saturday: 5 to 10 p.m.

Sunday: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

P.S.  If you miss The Pickled Greek Proprietor Peter Skrivanos “aka Papi,” he can be found on the occasional shift at The Galleon.

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.
