New Home for Bistro at Home
There was no shortage of broken hearts on Nantucket last summer when one of the island’s most loved eateries were forced to close their doors. But after losing the lease at their Centre Street location, chef-owners Ruth and Tim Pitts did what many of us had to in the midst of a pandemic: they learned to swerve.
Shortly after their closure, Bistro at Home was launched, providing all their home-cooked goodness with the convenience of curb-side pickup. They’re still at it this year only cooking up love from a new location. Conveniently located at 19 Nobadeer Farm Road, they are once again serving up some of the best breakfasts and dinners available on Nantucket. Click on nanucketbistro.com to check out daily menus, follow them on Instagram @nantucketbistroathome and text them at 508-901-1858 to place your order. Don’t wait till the last minute or you could miss out on a favorite.
Live Again & Thinking Outside the Box
Another island organization that put on a few pandemic pivots is The Theater Workshop of Nantucket. During 2020, they entertained virtually and even held an old-style telethon, drawing on their deep pool of talent. With indoor gatherings only just beginning to return, TWN looked outside the box for their 2021 performances. Literally. Their in-person shows —Momma Mia and A Grand Night for Singing—will be performed in an open-air venue, complete with an elevated stage plus theatrical lighting and sound, at Bartlett’s Farm.
Theater-goers will sit at a table with their parties of 2 to 6 people, with a limited number of single person tables available. Each table is at least six feet from the nearest table, and the positions of tables are staggered for good lines of sight to the stage. Some handicapped seats will be available. Tickets can be purchased online 24/7 at theatrenantucket.org or by phone 508-228-4305 Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 2 pm.
