As the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board (BVITB) wraps up a busy season of Summer FREEdom deals, the destination is announcing their first-ever culinary extravaganza, BVI Food Fete, which will offer a variety of delicious, locally-focused events and activities throughout the month of November.
“The BVI Food Fete is a wonderful opportunity for the Territory to showcase the finest Caribbean cuisine and we’re excited to invite travelers to taste the best of the BVI,” said Sharon Flax-Mars, Director of Tourism. “Due to the variety of program offerings, diners will have the opportunity to island hop while sampling local ingredients like famous Anegada spiny lobster, our signature cocktail, The Painkiller and more.”
Throughout the month-long BVI Food Fete, unique events and programming will feature the destination’s finest cuisine and chefs, including, BVI Restaurant Week, the Anegada Lobster Festival, On The Rocks Bar Crawl, international chefs, wine and rum tastings, and Local Fridays.
BVI Restaurant Week has developed into an interactive culinary event that continues to drum excitement and participation from restaurateurs, chefs and food lovers throughout the Caribbean region and internationally, introducing patrons to the varied dishes offered throughout the Territory for breakfast, lunch or dinner at significantly reduced prices. Restaurants that participate in BVI Restaurant Week will offer a special discounted menu for the entire week. These menus involve a maximum charge of $45 for a three-course dinner; $15 for lunch; $9 for breakfast. Each menu will include a complimentary drink.
The British Virgin Islands Tourist Board, together with the population of Anegada, will feature talented local chefs who will be on-hand to prepare, cook, and serve plated sample lobster dishes at participating Anegada restaurants. Participants will dine on three different lobster samplers at each restaurant at a cost of $10-$12 per sampler plate. Travelers don’t have to stay on Anegada to experience the festival – ferry services will be running daily from the other islands, including Virgin Gorda and Tortola.
Despite its status as a United Kingdom territory, the BVI uses the U.S. dollar as its official currency. The BVI Tourist Board invites everyone to experience the seduction of our pristine and exquisite home.
