Set atop Caneel Hill, overlooking the bay, this funky, Asian fusion spot was transformed from a private family home to a restaurant in the mid 1990s and the owners never looked back. With seating for just 50 guests each night, reservations are hard to come by, and highly recommended.
The entrees offered are Thai vegetable lemongrass curry, Thai marinated baby back ribs, Shanghai smoked duck confit legs, Japanese sous-vide filet, Caribbean conch layered mahi, Asolare's signature shrimp and grits and sesame-encrusted pan seared tuna.
