70 Honduras, Frenchtown
Honduras is Frenchtown's main drag and Noche, a relative
newcomer to the island, has a prime location on it. Noche is
St. Thomas' premier steakhouse and is the only place in the
Caribbean that serves Ridgefield Farm Premium Hereford
Beef, generally accepted as the finest beef available. The
house specialty is a fabulous porterhouse (40 oz.) for two, but
filet mignon, sirloin and NY strip steaks are also delicious.
There is a rotisserie chicken, and Australian lobster tails,
snapper and salmon choices as well. Starters include shrimp
and lump-meat crab cocktails, clams casino and crab-stuffed
mushrooms. Caesar salads are prepared at your table and
lobster bisque has pieces of lobster in it.
Baked Alaska seems to be the most popular dessert, but
there are pastries and sorbets too. Noche's décor is designed
to replicate a hacienda in 19th-century Spanish Colonial
America. The entrance leads to the largest dining area, dom-
inated by a burnished bar with leather seats and couches.
Dark shiny woods are also found on the booths, tables and
massive chandeliers. At night, the white cloths and flicker-
ing candles make Noche perfect for a romantic evening. Din-
ner 5:30-10 pm. Parking.
