Bonito has gotten rid of the fish tanks and done over the place in beautiful blue and white nautical style. It has not, however, walked away from its predecessor's seafood bent. Instead it has introduced the island to a menu that in a single appetizer best sums up what St. Barth is all about. The dish is Tiradito Thai au Thon et Crabe, Coco, Mangue et Coriandre fraiche . The translation is roughly this: A Peruvian Tuna sashimi with Thai flavors incorporating Crabmeat, coconut, mango and fresh coriander. It is simply out of this world and the minute I get home I plan to make it. It blows ordinary sashimi out of the water and with its slices of perfect tuna, sweet coconut infused crab, its juicy mango colis, it is absolutely perfect. In one mouthful you have the taste of Peru, Thailand, Asia, with a soupcon of truly French culinary genius. And one other little anecdote which sums up what St. Barth is all about. While paying, Andrew's credit card did not make it back to the table. The next day we discovered it was missing. A call to Bonito elicited a return call. Of course they had the card, not to worry it was secure and they apologized but since we were walk-ins, they were desolee that they had no telephone number to reach us. This is truly just another reason why we hold this place in such adoration. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Just go straight up the hill to Bonito and enjoy every delicious moment.
