Bringing the trend of small plates to the rain-forest peaks of St. Thomas, Blue Orchid, at the Historic St. Peter Greathouse, is a winning combination of flavorful Caribbean-inspired dishes and insanely scenic vistas. Order a frothy cocktail and some of the delicious small plates; you and your party might graze on tuna tartare, lobster dip, duck confit sliders, or crab salad nachos, to name a few of the choices. The limited menu of entrees include steaks, seafood pastas, and pan-seared grouper. Come early (the bar opens at 4pm), so you can sip sunset drinks and point out the array of Virgin Islands, large and small, from the observation deck before nightfall.
