Best of Boston

2016 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, Martha's Vineyard

State Road

There’s a magic moment that happens after a meal at State Road, the rustically elegant West Tisbury restaurant favored by presidents and locals alike: Walking out, you remember, as if for the first time, that the rest of the world exists. And who, after consuming plates of delicate fritters (both local quahog and spicy cauliflower), greens grown up the road, and fish caught in island waters, could be blamed for forgetting?
