The old Stone Terrace restaurant space is returning to its roots in a way, aiming for the niche for high-end dining.
Say hello to Robin and Erica Miner, and son Elijah, the island’s newest restaurant owners.
The Terrace, which plans a soft opening in mid-October, won’t cater to everybody, with entrees $30 and up, but Robin and Erica think they have the culinary chops to pull it off.
The theme will be French-inspired fine dining. A similar theme did very well for the old Stone Terrace for many years.
Robin and Erica moved to St. John from Madison Wisconsin in 2004. Erica spent three years at La Tapa before serving as Executive Chef at St. John Waterfront Bistro when it opened. Robin worked briefly at the Stone Terrace, spent six years at Rhumb Lines and the last year or so at Banana Deck.
“We’re going back to the same high-end style of the Stone Terrace,” says Erica. “It’s also is a huge help that I have had the experience of opening another restaurant on St. John.”
The Terrace plans to be open six nights a week for now, and seven nights when High Season gets underway.
The view is a guaranteed hit.
