Grocery or Supermarket
“Locations in Redhook and in town. Moe’s is the most expensive grocery store on island, but it does boast organic and specialty products. It also has a wonderful wine selection and a nice deli with to-go sandwiches and a hot/cold bar with nice lunch options.”

Neighbourhood
“Honestly, Red Hook is the sexiest neighbourhood on there island. But, it offers food eating options, a supermarket, pharmacy, surf shop and more. Here is our recommendation: Food: Texas Pit Bar B Q offers awesome chicken ribs & brisket, This is a great meal-to-go option, but come exalt because they always sellout. Located in th red Hook Plaza parking lot Texas Pit offers lunch & dinner. The Tap & Still is a great bar and serves awesome build-your-own burgers & fires. A burger at Tap & Still is a take-me-back-to-Burger King experience where you can have a great beef patty, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions and a bun. They make great fries too! ”
