Nantucket Spring Restaurant Week

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

“People, who love to eat, are always the best people”. –Julia Child

Well, we could not agree with you more Julia. We are so excited that the Nantucket Spring Restaurant Week is upon us! It starts June 1st and runs through June 7th. There are so many amazing participating restaurants to choose from that we thought we would help our guests out and recommend some of our staff’s favorite spots.

Ventuno, we have gone there three years for restaurant week. I love the small bite appetizers. The homemade pasta is to die for.”
-Dale Hamilton (Owner)

Black-Eyed Susan, every time I eat here I think how did an amazing menu like this find its way to this island!”
-Susan Hamilton (Owner)
Clearly she’s a little influenced by such a great name! ;)

Dune is an interesting combination of flavors, with varied offerings. Different attractive areas to sit in with an attentive staff.”
-Peter Burnham (General Manager)

The Pearl is a must, from the chic interior, to the Asian seafood inspired menu, and the BEST espresso martini on the island.”
–Taylor Hays (Assistant Manager)

The Nautilus, the atmosphere is amazing and their handcrafted cocktails are the best on the island bar none! Their tapas dishes are perfect for sharing and the combinations and flavors they have for each are innovative and refreshing.”
-Andréa Fernández-Kennedy (Assistant Manager)

Cru offers spectacular water views, and a modern and sophisticated atmosphere. The food is on par with perfection, and leaves nothing to be desired, other than one more bite. From their infamous oyster bar, to causal cuisine, Cru has culinary expertise for seafood lovers everywhere.”
-Joey Anthony (Concierge)
