Best of Boston

2004 BEST Restaurant, General Excellence, Martha's Vineyard

Atria

First things first: On an island, going out for a great dinner shouldn’t mean you have to shackle yourself in a sport coat. That’s why this contemporary but elegant Edgartown restaurant wins our praise and our devotion for its delicious interpretations of standard New England dishes—wok-fired lobster, with an outstanding taste and texture, for example. So settle into a seat in the low-key dining room or the surprisingly hip subterranean lounge and dive into the pan-seared Georges Bank scallops.
