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.

January, 2021

More than a twist on its Route 42 location, the name RooT 42 Bar & Grill has an inspired beginning Said proprietor Brian Cox, “It’s an acronym for the restaurant’s post-hurricane Caribbean roots: Risen Out Of Tragedy.” 

Located at Flamboyan on the Bay Resort & Villas, RooT 42 opened in 2017, less than three months after the property had been ravaged by Hurricane Irma. Anxious to give storm-weary island residents a place to socialize and enjoy a hot meal, Brian acquired the battered structure and went to work creating makeshift seating on the patio. Initially, Brian and the small staff offered a very limited “Magic Marker” menu daily, based on foods available at the market, post-hurricane.

A firm believer in giving back to the community, as he continued making steady improvements,  Brian commissioned solid wood tabletops for RooT 42 to be custom built by vocational trainees at My Brother’s Workshop nonprofit organization.

Today — three years and two temporary COVID-19 shutdowns later —RooT 42 now boasts a sports lounge with multiple TVs, as well as patio seating around the resort’s pool with cascading waterfall. Patrons also are invited to reserve tables in the newly refurbished air-conditioned wine room.

Menu selections include fresh salads, burgers, sandwiches, paninis, flatbread pizza, chicken parmesan, country fried meatloaf, jerk chicken and pasta dishes. Nightly specials feature chef’s choice tacos plus a meat and seafood entree. Sunday brunch offers eggs Benny, the omelet of the day, Baileys French toast and chocolate chip pancakes. 

For frozen drink fans, blender concoctions were recently added to the extensive beverage menu. Check out taste-tempting options including the Pina Colada made with Cruzan dark rum, pineapple and orange juice coconut cream, nutmeg, cherry and lime garnish. Daiquiri lovers have a choice of strawberry, passionfruit or mango flavors made with Cruzan light and dark rum. Also look for the ‘Cool Off’ Margarita, Capri Cooler, Dream’Sicle and other fun options. Don’t forget the Bushwacker — known as the “St. Thomas original adult chocolate milk.”
