Best of Boston

2011 Best New Restaurant, Nantucket


Under Gabriel Frasca and Amanda Lydon, the aging Twenty-One Federal was remained as Ventuno—a stellar dining option for the island. The Italian-focused small plates showcase many ACK-grown ingredients, while handmade pastas (strozzapreti with braised rabbit, spaghetti alle vongole); substantial antipasti (burrata, braised local conch); and a thought-provoking wine list make this eatery a vacation must.
