Café culture has become a beloved part of our island experience. Autumn evenings are still warm enough to be comfortable at sidewalk tables, and the island’s balmy October days add to the fun of sitting outside for lunch and late afternoon cocktails. With more than half-a-dozen restaurants offering inviting sidewalk dining complete with romantic bistro lights draped overhead, umbrellas, pretty plantings, and enticing aromas, you might think it hard to choose. It’s not: walk past the others and head to The Beet at 9 South Water Street.
We love this time of year. As September rolls in, the crowds thin, the ocean is still warm, and the sun shines down on the long and lingering last days of summer. What’s more, it means we can score a table at a much-loved island eatery: Black Eyed Susan’s.
Every city and town has one. It’s that local spot that always seems to have a seat waiting or a table ready, happy to serve up some delicious local fare at a fair
price. The drinks flow and the smiles glow at Nantucket’s own Rose and Crown.
There’s nothing quite like a good, hearty breakfast. Or fresh seafood served piping hot and perfectly prepared. Not to mention a simple sandwich that satisfies, along with subs, salads wraps, or tacos topped off with just what you want. Simply put, Easy Street Cantina has it all.
Every vacation has its highlight reel, and every summer season passes by with those moments we all remember. That day at the beach or that night on the water, Fourth of July fireworks or concerts on the shore, these are the things that make life worth living. For a night that you’ll fondly recall for years to come, get a table at Dune.
by Carl Oscar Olson As the saying goes, “nothing good ever lasts,“ and this is especially true for many of Nantucket’s much-loved eateries. Leases run out, head chefs move on, or it simply comes time to retire from it all. If you’ve never dined with some of our favorite islanders […]
Celebrating their second summer season on South Water Street, Amy Young and Felino Samson have continued to create something superbly special. Featuring family-friendly, delicious dining in an easygoing atmosphere, their menu is filled with food that is as fantastic as it is fun. To put it simply: The Beet is not to be missed!
It’s been said that September is the finest month on Nantucket. As summer turns to autumn, the weather is warm enough to enjoy the beach, downtown shops are hosting sales, evenings are cool and clear, and Black-Eyed Susan’s is still open for us all to enjoy their unique cuisine of […]
There is no arguing the fact that this has been the most challenging summer in memory for island businesses, and harder still for for our many marvelous restaurants. From forced closures to takeout-only to better weather and expanded outdoor seating, it has been a roller coaster to say the least. By meeting the innumerable challenges head-on with constant adjustments and adaptations, Dune has never missed a beat.
