Best of Boston

2013 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, Nantucket

American Seasons

Yes, the much-crowed-about charcuterie board—loaded with no fewer than 15 pâtes, sausages, rillettes, and accompaniments—is really that good. But do save room for the other standout dishes on the often-southern-leaning menu, like the dayboat scallops with fried green tomatoes and smoky crayfish butter, or the suckling-pig confit with mustard greens and pickled kumquats. It’s all served with a genuine smile and spot-on wine suggestions, either in the cozy dining room or on the enchanting, leafy patio.
