2013 BEST New Restaurant, Nantucket


Here’s a new island tradition: Disembark at Straight Wharf and make a beeline to Cru. This swish, year-old spot, decked out in striped pillows and driftwood chandeliers, has the raw bar to beat and the see-and-be-seen crowd you’d expect at a place with not one but two bars slinging cocktails and wines by the glass. And good news for those who’ve already OD’d on seafood: The chicken under a brick with warm farro salad, wild ramps, and roasted grapes is a hit.
