2016 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, Nantucket

Straight Wharf

Ten years in, Gabriel Frasca and Amanda Lydon’s Straight Wharf is still the island standard. Organic and mostly local menus deal in New England’s best, including Frasca’s famous and oft-imitated smoked bluefish pâté; the signature clambake, featuring buttered lobster and fresh-dug littlenecks; and Bartlett’s corn soup, made with corn from just down the road.
