With the growing popularity of cuisines like Korean BBQ that allows guests to grill their own meats right at the table, Sonesta St. Maarten Resorts introduces its own unique take on this trend with the new dinner program “On the Rock.” This fun, new feature provides guests with individual hot volcanic stone plates where they can prepare their favorite meats and vegetables items right in front of them for a fun and even healthy dining experience. What’s even better is that this exclusive amenity is included in the resorts’ all-inclusive rate.
”On the Rock” is available at Palm’s Grill at the family-friendly Sonesta Maho Beach Resort (also accessible to adults-only Sonesta Ocean Point guests), as well as at Water’s Edge located at the adults-only Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort. Both restaurants offer a selection of fresh ingredients along with guests’ individual hot stone plate, so every bite is perfectly prepared as guests cook a selection of meat, fish and vegetables exactly to their liking.
These rocks are super-heated in a special oven to 440 degrees C/824 degrees F and stay hot throughout the dining experience to allow up to 45 minutes of cooking time. Hot stone cooking allows for a safe, fun and healthy way to enjoy favorite foods, with no additives or additional fats or oils used in the cooking process. The dry, super heat of the stone sears in all delicious flavors of your chosen meat or fish.
Guests can choose from an array of meats including beef strip loin, chicken breast, pork sausages, pork piccata. Seafood offerings include mahi-mahi fillet, Atlantic salmon fillet, tiger shrimps or ahi tuna fillet. To round out the dining experience there are a number of sides to accompany the main event, including truffle parmesan fries, rice gumbo, baked potato, garlic mashed potatoes, roasted corn on the cob, Caesar salad or a seasonal mixed green salad.
Happy Grilling and Bon Appetit!
