Whether you’re in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands as a visitor, a local — or always in spirit — Coconut Post keeps you posted on fun-filled news ’n views. Published monthly by Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas, we’re focused on sharing our people, places, and fun things happening in paradise.

March, 2022

Truly a destination without equal, even a phrase as lofty as “A fine-dining experience in the sky,” fails to do justice when describing PRIME at Paradise Point.

Nestled on a mountainside in a unique complex overlooking Havensight and Charlotte Amalie harbor, perhaps it’s best to simply state that PRIME “has it all.”

From its stratospheric vantage point, guests are captivated by a full-on view of colorful Caribbean sunsets as majestic vessels slice through tranquil seas below. At dusk,  the twinkling lights of town add to an unmistakably romantic ambiance.

Fascinating vistas are just part of the multi-faceted appeal at PRIME. Truly a steakhouse extraordinaire, this is the ideal island restaurant to enjoy unequaled cuts of prime grade quality beef as well as fresh-caught local Caribbean lobster.

Additionally, PRIME offers an array of exotic meats such as antelope, venison, bison, ostrich, and Wagyu beef. Several entrees feature photo-worthy table-side presentations including the signature Tomahawk steak

Owned and operated by Steve Boswell, this seasoned restaurateur comes to the table with a long list of gastronomic accomplishments including having run Cafe Amici, and Taste, as well as being part of the skilled team at legendary Havana Blue. 

A St. Thomas resident for the last 17 years, he advised that his sister and brother-in-law were already settled on island when he decided to join them in 2005.  

Steve got his start in the business as a bartender while working his way through college at Sam Houston State.

“I worked at a small place called TW’s,” he said.  “I started upgrading the cocktail menu with new drink recipes and things started taking off from there.”

Just as he began in the restaurant business, to this day Steve remains totally immersed in day-to-day operations.

Doors first opened at PRIME in 2017. “I made it a point to personally do the cooking during the launch period and throughout the first year,” he said.

Much of that responsibility is now in the capable hands of Executive Chef Brady Sweet who enjoys countless kudos — as noted on TripAdvisor and other key sites. 

PRIME prides itself on serving only the highest quality products — from locally sourced produce to meats that are flown to St. Thomas specifically for the restaurant. “We have an excellent rapport with multiple suppliers,” said Steve.

At PRIME the Tomahawk steak is dry-aged for 45 days and served by way of a glorious table-side presentation.

Another not-to-be-missed taste sensation is PRIME’s “Wildfire Wednesdays” featuring exotic meats prepared table-side and on fire. “It’s got that definite “WOW” factor,” Steve exclaimed.

It should come as no surprise, that PRIME features an incomparable wine list as well as a cocktail menu of handcrafted libations created by experienced mixologists.

Of course, no meal is complete without dessert. With that in mind, celebrated in-house pastry chef Nicole Roman offers a selection of creative confections made fresh daily. Favorites include seasonal creme brulee.

No matter how luscious the food or exquisite the ambiance, every dining-out experience depends on a dedicated team of professionals to bring it to life. Happily, Steve will tell you himself, “We have the greatest staff.”

The seating capacity of 125 includes a popular outdoor dining patio as well as an intimate bar area — an ideal place to enjoy Freddie Rabuse on piano each Thursday through Saturday evening from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Additionally, guests get to enjoy live painting demonstrations by local artist Mitch Gibbs.
