Live it up. Have fun. Here, you’ll find the history as colorful as the local architecture, and food that is the stuff of legends. It’s a mélange of cultures, cuisines and influences, and the magic is irresistible. We start with a French heritage that infuses our way of life, and then add a dash of Spanish, Haitian and Creole to give it spice and originality.
