Best of Boston

2018 Best Restaurant, Martha’s Vineyard

The Terrace at the Charlotte Inn

You can almost feel time stand still in the Terrace’s airy dining room, decorated in the Edwardian style (with the occasional whimsical twist) and magically tucked away from the bustling high-season scene. The charming throwback theme extends to the menu of vintage cocktails and French-influenced fare from chef Justin Melnick, a Tomasso Trattoria alum: You can’t go wrong with a dirty martini, caviar on grilled brioche, and lobster lavished with creamy saffron-sherry sauce.
