Breathing New Life into a Former Icon

IT ALL STARTED When...

Two Bad Sisters named Irma and Maria ripped through our beloved Virgin Islands, our kitchen, and our home in September of 2017.  In the months following the storms, we were displaced and left wondering what would become of the catering and private chef business we had worked so hard to build since 2004 under the leadership of Mathayom Vacharat.

In January of 2018, we got Lucky with a new home located at the former Fish Trap space in downtown Cruz Bay, St. John and the chance to start a new and exciting company, Lucky Chops Lounge. The space has been given lots of love in terms of renovation and rejuvenation, and it is now ready for you to eat, drink, chill, and be happy featuring Asian inspired Caribbean cuisine with house crafted cocktails and specialty tea drinks. We can also host your wedding or special event, and you can choose from our menu or partner with our parent company, St. John Catering, to create a custom concept.
