FROM ‘SOCIABLE BUBBLES’ BY THE POOL TO MOBILE CUISINE AND MEAL KITS, THIS SEASON SEES THE AWARD-WINNING TEAM BEHIND SHEER ROCKS AND CATHERINE’S CAFÉ GET EXTRA CREATIVE
The unprecedented challenges presented by 2020 have once again got the creative Rocks Group crew thinking outside the box.
Happily, setting new standards in dining and entertaining at their two acclaimed eateries is what they do best. And that’s just one of the reasons this year saw Sheer Rocks named the best restaurant in the Caribbean.
The coveted accolade from the Carib Journal came as the lauded west coast spot prepared to celebrate an entire decade in business in November. Sheer Rocks is no stranger to plaudits but with mentions of a “miraculous menu” and “truly admirable, locally-focused sourcing”, this one was a feather in its culinary cap.
With the focus currently on smaller, more intimate social occasions, Sheer Rocks’ poolside experiences – boasting the jaw-dropping ocean panoramas that helped make its name – are a pretty good place to start.
From tapas with close friends or family, to couples’ days with champagne and canapés, there’s a variety of options to choose from whether one prefers the plunge pool or the exclusive rock pool for utmost seclusion.
Perched atop a bluff overlooking an expanse of Caribbean Sea, Sheer Rocks is loved for its romantic ambience and Mediterranean-inspired menus.
Its sister, Catherine’s Café, nestled among the neem trees of Pigeon Point Beach, serves up mouth-watering French cuisine in a relaxed but elegant setting. Bespoke private events incorporating the expertise of both have also been given new life this season.
The Rocks Group prides itself on bringing beautifully curated and luxurious dining experiences direct to your door. It’s not just in-house feasts that are on offer, the trend-setting team can also craft weddings and other celebrations, all within the careful confines of social bubbles and safety guidelines. For those wishing to recreate a Rocks culinary experience for themselves, the Rocks Box has been given a revamp too.
The monthly hand-picked selection of sommelier-choice wines is still available by subscription. But the team have upped their game some more, expanding the offerings to include discounted ready-to-eat meals, and meal kits comprising the restaurants’ favourite dishes that can be prepared at home in one or two easy steps. There’s also a deli selection with items for cooking or snacking, and even bottled versions of some of their most popular cocktails. All are available for pick-up or island-wide delivery from Wednesday to Saturday. A few more reasons why Rocks Group continues to stay ahead of the curve.
