Best of Boston

2005 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, Nantucket

The Pearl

Five years after its opening, Seth and Angela Raynor’s chic Franco-Asian restaurant has taken off. The kitchen has hit its stride with confident, refined numbers such as “spooned” tuna with uni sauce and salt- and pepper-wok-fried lobster. Even wine director David Lower’s winning list seems better suited to the menu and more appropriate than ever.
