If you dream of a star chef catering your wedding, your chance is coming up in early 2009. Chef David Miller, a Zagat Rated Chef, in partnership with Savant Fine Dining is opening a restaurant at the new Scrub Island, a private island resort to open in the British Virgin Islands. The fine dining restaurant named Antilia will feature a six-course menu, set to change weekly to offer in-season foods.
Of special interest to brides, signature handmade desserts by Savant Fine Chocolates showcase the sweeter side of life at Antilia. From handmade chocolates and wedding cakes, to signature ice sculptures and food carvings, brides can also choose to have their wedding catered by a Zagat rated chef without leaving the private island.
