Transforming the laidback space formerly occupied by L'Entre-Deux, Black Ginger opened in 2014, bringing a dash of drama—black tables, wood floors, and sexy red accents—to the place. Black Ginger also brings Thai food, a refreshing change from all that gussied-up French. Of course, this being St. Barts, don't expect storefront Thai. At Black Ginger, a lineup of Mandarin Oriental Bangkok chefs turns out smartly crafted, thoughtfully sourced dishes in a party atmosphere of designer cocktails, leggy servers, and thumping lounge music. And at press time a standing-room crowd of yachties, families, and locals was lapping it up. You can dine downstairs or up on the open-air second floor under a night sky of stars sampling such delights as shrimp-ravioli soup, mango salad with soft-shell crab, black pepper mahi-mahi (locally caught), and innovative iterations of curry and noodles.
