I can hardly believe Lemongrass has been open for over a month already. Seriously! The time has flown since our launch on February 20th. Our first month of business has been non-stop action, but we’re very proud to have launched this restaurant on-schedule, on-budget and in time to catch the tail end of the tourist season. It took about 3 months from construction to opening day, turning a concrete shell into a fully operational, modern, open kitchen. Thanks to Paul Altman and the staff of Limegrove for all their help and support, Limegrove is a truly excellent place to work and play.
Many thanks to our patrons for their wonderful support and feedback. We’ve had some excellent comments on our food and service. The menu itself has had a great response so far, and dishes like the Tuna Tataki have already become clear crowd favourites. We updated and expanded the menu last week and we plan to do further updates on a regular basis. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for news.
In the kitchen, Fazula Ali-Weekes, Andres Antoine, Larissa King and Tamirah Moore have mastered the art of our Asian menu and are cooking authentic Thai dishes in record time. I haven’t checked, but I think we’re one of the fastest kitchens in Barbados. We’re certainly the only truly open kitchen where all the action is on display for the diners. If you haven’t visited Lemongrass yet, come and see for yourself!
On the deck, John Beckles, Raquel Waithe, Roshanna Forde, James Yarde, Narissa Howell, Liz-Ann Bowen, Jannie Forde, Fernando Forde and Schimeon Francis have done a great job with the service and keeping everything running smoothly.
