2007 BEST Brunch, Nantucket

Topper’s Restaurant at the Wauwinet

A quick ferry ride from Straight Wharf drops Sunday gourmands at the Wauwinet, where the garden at the inn’s restaurant, Topper’s, isn’t just for show. In the hours before the brunch rush, chef David Daniels (formerly of XV Beacon’s Federalist) can be seen plucking herbs for his refined recipes, which include Wauwinet turkey hash, cinnamon-sugar beignets, and a Kobe beef-and-short rib burger. Elegant yet comfortable banquettes and sweeping views of Nantucket Sound have encouraged many a brunch-goer to linger; sometimes all the way till dinner.
