food and the twinkling lights of St. John in the distance.

PATRICK'S AT COMPASS POINT
Compass Point Marina
Compass Point Marina, five minutes from Red Hook (along
Route 32) was home to Raffles Restaurant for over 20 years.
It recently closed and we were delighted to find a terrific new
restaurant in its place. Although the “bungalow on the wa-
ter” looks the same from the outside, it has been renovated
and refurbished. The Asian bamboo, peacock chairs and
dark woods have been replaced by light colors and Carib-
bean art. There are dining areas on different levels and the
bar remains a center of interest. Owner/chef Patrick
Stevens' menu is witty and the food is delicious, whether you
are very hungry or want to eat lightly. Starters include loco
chicken tortillas and smoked salmon duet (salmon pate and
smoked salmon) with goat cheese and garlic bruschetta.
Entrées include beef Wellington, roast duck and sea bass
over wild mushroom couscous. Lighter choices include a
dozen individual pizzas with scores of toppings and chunky
chili served with cheese, onions, beans, spaghetti and even
falo-dipped chicken breast and burgers.
The wine list is impressive. Patrick's partner Dave is the of-
ficial greeter. He makes everyone feel right at home. Infor-
mal, Patrick's is a unique dining experience on the island.
Dinner only. 6 am-10 pm. Closed Sun. Parking.
