I understand that a new Austrian restaurant is opening tomorrow, Wednesday, in Seine Bight. It's called Danube and is located about 4 mi north of the Placencia airstrip. From the menu, I see it will serve dishes like wiener schnitzel, fleischknoedel mit weinkraut, vegetarian strudel and goulash with dumplings.

Also, Paul Martin has opened a restaurant at his Roaring River Golf Course near Belmopan, along with four new cabanas. The restaurant is called The Meating Place and specializes in steak and seafood. Both the cabanas and the restaurant overlook the river.

Good luck to these new restaurants -- can't wait to try them!
