Why Should I Go? Drinks with itty-bitty umbrellas… Sunscreen that smells of coconut… Cabana boys… Skin the color of a new penny… oh, sorry. Just got caught up listing all the things we love about the Caribbean. It’s a lengthy list, which is why we’re so grateful to have the Island Grill in the heart of Cape May; it offers a little slice of that peaceful paradise. The decor is bright and playful, the servers who deliver your meal are sun-kissed, but it’s the food that’s the dead giveaway. Chile-crusted pork chop with ancho-orange vinaigrette, anyone? It tastes as good as it sounds. And the best part is that you’re never boxed in. Order an entrée, and then pick from one of several sauces to go with it.
Insider Tip: You’ll be sorely tempted by the sandwiches (the Cuban is rave-worthy), if only you can manage to stop day-dreaming about a Caribbean escape long enough to order. Island Grill can also cater your private party or event.
