Best of Boston

2004 Best Brunch, Nantucket

Black Eyed Susan’s

Fine dining meets fine diner at this tiny, locally beloved restaurant, which has turned a counter-and-table setting into one of the island’s best spots for creative New American cuisine. Be prepared to wait outside for a table: reservations are accepted for 6 p.m. only. Once you’re seated in the wood-paneled dining room, be prepared to be impressed—especially with the festive weekend brunch featuring a flurry of fluffy pancakes bursting with just-picked blueberries, real grits, and picante eggs with salsa fresca, beans, and homemade ranchero sauce.

10 India St., Nantucket, 508-325-0308,
