Best of Boston

2011 Best Brunch, Nantucket

Boarding House

Like sitting on a South End patio, you’ll see everyone during weekend brunch here. People-watching aside, the covered, fenced-in Federal Street terrace is also a cool and shady spot to take in Seth and Angela Raynor’s outstanding service and locally sourced fare. Go sweet on pillowy house-made brioche doughnuts and soufflé pancakes, or ease into the day with a savory grilled pizzetta topped with fontina, arugula, and prosciutto. Whichever way you go, the BoHo’s classic bloody mary is a must.

12 Federal St., Nantucket, 508-228-9622,
