    I know the owner and cook of the Screaming Eagle; it 's pretty new. He used to cook for the Flying Fishbone! He is the best! My favorite restaurant by far and I'm not just saying that because I know the guy.

    Our 2 new finds this year (our 10th) were Anna Marie's a 1 yr old Italian find run out of a couple home. The have their own thread on this site.

    And 2nd is not a restaurant but a gourmet take-out place in the strip mall behind the Certified Mega Mall, called The Kitchen. Incredible lunch and dinner dishes at reasonable prices.

    If you are a island regular you know all the standard names, but I would not miss eating at either of these 2 new places.
    Aruba where the toughest question each day is "where to dine tonight".

    i keep forgetting to comment about THE KITCHEN.
    it is excellent and has terrific take out (gourmet quality) meals and excellent pricing.

    portions are huge so most likely there will be leftovers.

    You can never go wrong with breakfast at Linda's for Dutch pancakes or Wacky Wahoo for dinner.

    Screaming Eagle and Flying Fishbone are owned by the same couple.

    Carte Blanche just opened a few months ago. They're located next to the windmill - not IN the windmill but just to the left of it.

    Another recommendation for Carte Blanche. It's such a different dining experience. It reminded me a little of how you can have dinner in a chef's home in Buenos Aires. This is set up like a bar with fourteen seats. Chef Dennis is preparing your meal on one side of the bar, and Glen chooses the wine for each course. As you are being served, the chef will explain the ingredients he used, and Glen will explain the reason for his wine pairing.

    We met people from different states, and different countries. We were there for 3 1/2 hours and the time just went so fast. A great experience.

    You can choose 4 or 5 courses with or without wine pairings (they also have a wine list to choose from and a full bar.) They use the best, freshest ingredients for every course and the flavors and presentation are amazing! They also do an awesome job to cater to your tastes by inquiring in advance about any likes/dislikes. But it is mostly "chef's surprise" since he caters his menu to the fresh ingredients he's able to get. The couple from England sitting next to us were vegetarians so their courses were completely different from ours.

    Some of the items we had included an oyster shooter, cerviche, foie gras, and lamb chops. We also went with the wine pairings and they were spot on - complimented each course very nicely.
