It may lack the archetypal flat beach with pristine white sands, but many find the wilder Shell Beach, strewn with driftwood, boulders and silver shells is decidedly more romantic. Framed by wild bougainvillea and woody shrubs, the charmingly rustic beach-shack set halfway up the hillside is without doubt one of St. Barth's finest secluded restaurants. Part-owned by French Open champion turned pop singer Yannick Noah, Do Brazil doesn't conform to the clinical modernism of other hip venues. Although contemporary, the interior is cool and dark, offset by vast expanses of granite, oak and ebony wood, with modest picnic tables scattered along the upstairs terrace.
Do Brazil's menu demonstrates a purity and simplicity that's becoming all the more difficult to find among St. Barts more upscale eateries, led by traditional Caribbean influences. As the name implies, you will find a subtle nod to Brazilian influences, particularly among entrees which include Mango with Sechuan Pepper and Crab Tartar with Chorizo. Portions are exceptionally generous, so don't be averse to sharing if you're planning on sticking around for the main course. A refreshing alternative to traditional fish dishes, the marinated Mahi-Mahi with mushroom emulsion and truffle ravioles scores highly with returning guests, while Roasted Cockerel with Green Curry also comes highly recommended. If you're dropping by for lunch, be sure to sample the Coconut and Seafood Stew – said to be the best on the island!
