Where to Eat on Nantucket: Our Favorite Restaurants

I was happy to find the Nantucket dining scene as lively and as varied as ever. There are restaurants in all styles, featuring a variety of cuisines. Not surprisingly, you will find seafood in abundance. Settings range from beachside, to in-town romantic, to historic wharves. Even though Nantucket is a small island, you won’t lack for choice.

The announcement in 2015 by Michael and Orla La Scola that they were selling their highly regarded restaurant caused considerable dismay. But when the new owner was revealed to be Neil Ferguson of the equally well-loved Galley Beach, the furor began to subside. Ferguson continues to serve excellent food in this charming, atmospheric place just a short walk from the center of town. We began with a chitarra pasta with fresh tomatoes, followed by a special of roasted duck breast. Service was excellent, and the wine list is full of delights.
