If you want to have a globe-trotting culinary adventure without leaving the island of Roatán, Honduras, I recommend an evening at Ooloonthoo Indian Cuisine. Owner-chef Paul James, who is from Canada and a classically trained French chef, has been cooking his wife Soden's family recipes in a beautiful restaurant overlooking the ocean just outside West End. Two-course meals from $37.50. Open for dinner, by reservation only.
