It’s been a long time since there have been sightings of Jimmy Buffett on the island, but it seems like just yesterday that celebrity chef Mario Batali was spotted.
In fact, it was just last weekend, according to postings on TripAdvisor and even the big man himself uploading to Facebook.
Last March, the chef Batali enjoyed statying at Caneel Bay and dined at Fatty Crab and La Tapa. This year, he sampled the fare at the Terrace Restaurant and La Tapa, again, according to postings on TripAdvisor.
“We sat next to him (and his family) Saturday night at La Tapa," said Cleobeach1. “And yes, he had on the orange Crocs.”
The next night was Terrace-time. “I'm 90% sure we had dinner next to him tonight (Sunday) at The Terrace,” said Clmocs. “I couldn't tell what he ordered … but there was much wine at his table and a bit of a production with the wine tastings for each new bottle. Not anything over-the-top but it was what drew my attention to the table in the first place.”
Evidence suggests Batali stayed at Caneel Bay. The evidence, you ask? From the great man himself’s Facebook page. He also posted this picture on Twitter, commenting, “Ahhhhhhh….”
