Going green is all the rage in the Caribbean, but Elements takes it a step further by going au naturel with its cuisine. This Eagle Beach restaurant sets its menu with clear codes indicating organic and natural, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and petite portion (which is given the cheeky code "EU," for European-sized). This is the place for those who want to make sure they're eating all organic, and that their beef comes from pasture-fed cattle. Just because an option is marked vegetarian, that doesn't mean it lacks flavor—executive chef Kurt Hoffman serves up expertly prepared dishes. Veggie lovers can opt for homemade pasta shells stuffed with herbed grilled artichoke and garlic-infused sautéed arugula. Carnivores have the choice of dishes like a free-range, corn-fed chicken breast stuffed with locally grown mango, or grass-fed Black Angus served on a chocolate-red wine reduction. Note that prices match the sophistication of the plates. Modern furniture and a clean design aesthetic inside and on the patio make for a beach house-chic setting, with floor-to-ceiling windows perfectly framing the white sand shore.
