If you are driving, you'll appreciate
Route 38 , which is well maintained
and even has some lights.
THE FRIGATE EAST
Red Hook Plaza
Take a well-aged prime steak, perfectly seasoned and grilled
over an open hearth, throw in a well-stocked salad bar, hot
bread and butter, add a tall cool drink and the twinkling
lights of St. John in the distance and you have a winning
combination. The Frigate, relaxed and informal, serves din-
ner only on an open-air roof-covered terrace on the Plaza's
upper level. The menu consists of filet mignon, strip and sir-
loin steaks, teriyaki chicken and fresh seafood. These are
served with baked potato or rice. Desserts vary but include
puddings, pastries and ice creams. Dinner 6-10 pm. Bar
opens 5:30 pm. Closed Sun.
Frigate East has a Kid's Menu .
OFF THE HOOK
Piccolo Marina, Red Hook
Stressing good food and friendly service, Off The Hook
seems to have a winning formula. It has a romantic open-air
dockside setting and its white tables and chairs are set on
the boardwalk overlooking Vessup Bay. Fresh fish is deliv-
ered daily by local fishermen and seafood dominates the
menu. Conch fritters, Thai tuna tartare and Calypso
crabcakes are popular openers, but you might prefer the jerk
chicken skewers or chilled soup. Main courses include the
catch of the day prepared to your taste, local lobster, fish
stew in a coconut curry sauce and even barbecued chicken.
