Grand-Case: a gourmet paradise

Grand-Case: a gourmet paradise

The second largest French village after Marigot is also one of the most picturesque on the island.

Even though the colourful wooden cottages were struck by hurricane Irma, Grand-Case remains a most enjoyable and authentic place to visit. This is also where you will find the best local cuisine. Dozens of lolos, traditional variants on greasy spoon cafés, are strung along the main street. These are unpretentious but superb eateries, with food served on picnic tables on paper plates, and the air redolent with the aromas of smoking barbecues.

These open-air stands serve grilled ribs, the specialty of Saint Martin, and chicken, which you have to eat with your fingers. Each week, Les Mardis de Grand-Case (Grand-Case Tuesdays) are an opportunity for residents and visitors to gather around an event that highlights some of the key features of the island: its culture, local crafts, art, French cuisine, the flavours of the Caribbean, and many other activities all served up with jazz and Caribbean orchestras.
