Best of Boston

2017 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, Nantucket

The Nautilus

An instant hit when it opened in 2014, this ACK spot continues to wow diners with Asian-inspired shareable feasts and small plates, not to mention a stellar cocktail menu. And despite its inland location, you’ll still get dinner with a view: The dining room features an open kitchen, so you can watch while chef Liam Mackey and his team whip up house-made udon noodles, savory blue-crab fried rice, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
