Best of Boston
2006 Best Bar, Martha's Vineyard
Alchemy: A magical process of transmuting base metals into gold; the quest for the elixir of life. While falling a little short of offering immortality, this restaurant and bar does routinely deliver decadent night life—and damn good risotto fritters. The two-story modernized French bistro bustles after hours as patrons sip key lime pie martinis, cognacs, imported beer, or pinot noir from an affordable wine list.
