Imagination at Sea Explored During 2017 Arts Festival Dozens of arts and cultural groups and hundreds of individual artists, will exhibit their “Imagination at Sea” from Saturday, September 30 through Sunday, October 8 during Nantucket Arts Festival 2017. Events include an art exhibit featuring more than 100 professional and amateur artists; concerts of classical, folk, and popular music; plays; lectures and readings; demonstrations of culinary arts; and new video shorts by and about Nantucketers. Many events are free, some require tickets, and donations will be accepted at all.

Fun in Nature

Nantucket Land Council (NLC), an island organization dedicated to protecting Nantucket’s natural world and rural character, is hosting two opportunities in a week to be out in nature and enjoy our island’s beauty. The afternoon of Wednesday, September 27, the Land Council is inviting the public to join them in tagging monarchs. The Nantucket Land Council works with the non-profit Monarch Watch, which has been monitoring the migration patterns of monarch butterflies for over 25 years. Tagging season here began September 1 under the guidance of Resource Ecologist Emily Molden; the gathering on September 27, is open to all ages. “We'll bring nets and tags so you just need to bring yourself and a sense of adventure.� To join the fun, get out into nature, and hunt for monarchs call the Nan-

Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket

The Silence of September by Robert P. Barsanti The radio rolled out with Presidential shenanigans, a new iPhone in California, and an update on the latest hurricane before it muttered out the “Beach and Boating Forecast� and the tides for the day. Then I shut it off. Instead of the radio and the traffic, the open window offered a thick slice of silence. Far off in the distance, the waves crashed on the south shore and a school bus drove up the Madaket Road. Otherwise, God had nothing to say. In the quiet of an empty morning, the cleaning began. The summer ends when you feel sand in the carpets. We vacuumed it up as best we could and then swept out the kitchen. The toothpicks, the bottle tops, the golf tees (from the birthday cake) emerged from under the cabinets. Beneath the sofas, Green Lantern and Superman returned from years of imprisonment only to find that their time had also gone. We lined them up on the counter like boys at a dance, but no one picked them up. The world had turned to phones and controllers and games that roared. Nonetheless, they couldn’t be thrown out. Nor could the sand dollars go. Instead, we lined them up on the top shelf and hoped that they would last through the winter. Eventually, we filled the back of the car and drove down an empty Madaket road to the dump. The starlings had returned in battalions, only to settle onto the powerlines like guardian angels. The swans were also back, cruising through Great Pond. Summer also ends at the dump. It ends with a loaded car full of trash and recyclables that have been building up in the basement and in the garage for the summer and now must be gone through. The beer bottles, the wine bottles, and the rum bottles (because we drank Dark & Stormys this year) go shattering into the bin. The complete summer set of Inquirer and Mirrors and Sunday New York Times, flutter down the paper slide. Three bags of plastic continued on page 17

Nantucket’s Climate Resiliency In the wake of storms like Harvey, Irma, and now José, we are often left to think about our own community. What would we do in those situations? How will Nantucket respond? Are we prepared for what’s to come? Now more than ever, the magnitude and frequency of storms are predicted to increase with global climate change. Projections of future sea level rise will likely intensify the problems associated with such storms. The first thing Nantucket is doing is to be prepared in the event of a storm. And not just in the days before a storm, boarding up windows and putting down sand-bangs. The Town of Nantucket has been working on its Climate Resiliency. Climate Resiliency is defined by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) as the “ability of a community to ‘bounce back’ after hazardous events such as hurricanes, coastal storms, and flooding, rather than simply reacting to impacts.” Nantucket has been working on its resiliency for the last decade or so. Storms have the potential to damage infrastructure through wind, precipitation, and ocean flooding. While high winds can cause serious damage, it is predicted that the greatest risk comes in the form of storm surge. Storm surge is the rise in water level, over and above the regular astronomical tide, caused by a severe storm. Over the past several years, storms and storm surges have taken a major toll on Nantucket. After Hurricane Sandy, the total estimated damages were approximately $125,000, with $90,000 of these damages being to the Washington Street piers. After the nor’easter Juno, the total estimated damages were $1,700,000, and $1,200,000 of the damages were inflicted on the town pier. Damage to a community’s critical infrastructure threatens the public health, environment, and economy; therefore, preventative planning through mitigation tactics are essential. What is our town doing to protect our critical infrastructure? In 2013, the Town of Nantucket became the first of the Massachusetts coastal/island towns to be certified as StormReady (weather.gov/stormready/). StormReady is a voluntary program sponsored by the National Weather Service to encourage communities to prepare themselves for severe storms. For Nantucket to be recognized as StormReady, the emergency management team worked to set up redundant communications systems to send emergency alerts to the public in multiple ways and to inform the community of the importance of public readiness and emergency planning. In 2014, the Town completed the Coastal Management Plan which evaluated the conditions of town-owned infrastructure and made suggestions on those that needed protection. One of the first things acted on was the improvement of the Easy Street bulkhead. Improvements to the bulkhead were completed in 2017 in an effort to reduce flooding, particularly storm surge associated with extreme high tides. Town emergency-preparedness coordinator David Fronzuto said the new bulkhead is raised, and float valves have been installed over all four storm

White Heron Theatre’s newest production, Constellations has receive rave reviews for being a sexy and thoughtful “two-character drama” that makes it “impossible to look away, especially as the characters rapidly change position under the darkening light of the stage to perform their next possible reality.” According to reviewer Rebecca Nimerfroh, this production by White Heron “may be just the reason why we as individuals should return our focus to the stage; the well beaten path of theme in cinema is so well traveled, it is nearly crumbled macadam, but if we allow ourselves to follow these strangers into the forest of unexplored thought, we emerge with a map, showing footpaths into unexplored realms of the heart and mind.” With just three performances remaining of Constellations, September 23, 24, and 25, visit Whiteherontheatre.org now to buy your tickets.

Those of us who are lucky enough to be on island this time of year know that the Indian Summer and the lack of crowds are a just reward for the hustle and bustle of July and August. As we enter in to fall, this is the prime time for sake drinking. Brewed during the cold winter months and then pressed in the spring, sake is typically aged six months and then released in the fall for your enjoyment. What better way to celebrate the upcoming Nihonshu no Hi (Sake Day) on October 1, traditionally the starting date of sake production in Japan, than with a toast to this alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin made of fermented rice. Sake is an alcoholic beverage that is made by fermenting rice. My first experience with sake many moons ago was when it was served warm as an accompaniment to sushi—at a ski resort in Montana, no less. Sake that is typically served like this is usually not that good: heating it up will only mask the awful flavors of the bad sake. Like wine, sake can be served and enjoyed at a variety of temperatures based on how well the sake performs at that certain temperature and also your taste preferences (note: scalding hot should not be one of those options). Also similar to wine, there are different categories of sake. But instead of talking about grape varieties such as Chardonnay or Cabernet, we talk about sake in terms of how much each grain of sake brewing rice is milled. Thus, categories of sake are established by polishing/milling percentages irrespective of the rice varietal. This refers to how much of each grain of rice is removed from the outside husk in the attempt to get at the starchy core inside. One of the most common words seen in reference to sake is the term Junmai. While this category does not have a milling requirement, it refers to the absence of any distilled alcohol. Some brewers do add a small amount of distilled alcohol to the brewing process to bring out different flavors, aromas, and textures in the sake. Like using oak on a fine wine, this production method is a decision made based on breweries' discretion and what they would like the outcome of their final product to be. Seimaibuai (say-my-boo-eye) is the word you need to know in reference to the grade and category of sake. It refers to how much of a grain of brewing rice is polished or milled. For the sake grade Ginjo, the rice has been milled 40%, with a value of 60% of the rice remaining. Daiginjo refers to at least 50% of the rice has been polished away leaving 50% of the core of the grain that will then be fermented. When combining the two key words Junmai and Seimaibuai, you will be able to distinguish the various commonly accepted grades of sake: Junmai meaning the absence of distilled alcohol, and Seimaibuai referring to the milling value for each sake. Definitely learning a new language here, but once you have the basics you will be able order your favorite sake. continued on page 20

Nantucket Stitching Gam Begins Oct. 1 The Artists Association of Nantucket and the Nantucket Atheneum kick off a one year community-based stitching and textile project at the Atheneum’s Great Hall at 1 pm on Sunday, October 1. During this “socially-engaged embroidery” project, participants are asked to create a work that celebrates their experience of Nantucket. It can be made up of images or words or both. The content of the pages will be open and prescriptive to give people room to express themselves. Anyone interested in the project is invited to attend the October 1 kick off and learn more about Interwoven Stories, pick up a free kit of embroidery materials, and see examples from other Interwoven Stories projects. The project concludes during the 2018 Nantucket Arts Festival with an exhibit of handcrafted, embroidered “pages” made by Nantucketers. In addition, the Interwoven Stories project includes a printed catalog with a photograph of each work and a short biography of each artist. The AAN and Atheneum will distribute free kits that contain a page and the supplies needed. Over the year, the two organizations will hold monthly stitching sessions as well as other programs that celebrate the talent of the island’s many stitchers, both past and present. The project was started by island summer resident Diana Weymar who has facilitated other Interwoven Stories in New Jersey and Washington. Weymar explains the project in her blog linked from dianaweymar.com like this: “This project is about the materiality of touch. Being touched. Touching. The human touch. The common touch....Textile is embedded with a language, like Braille, that can be read by touch as well as sight. When working with memory materials like textile, the subconscious can be more deeply explored. This is a very basic recognition that comes from a place of comfort and humility.... “Beyond the physical touch, the pages reflect the ways in which we connect with each other emotionally on a community level. We often hold memories and connections for each other without being aware of it.” Weymar will be at the October 1 Arts Festival event to help kick off the project in 2017 by showing works from other projects.

Festival will feature two hours of short video films made by local amateur and professional filmmakers in the Dreamland Theatre. Familiar and rarely heard classical music of the baroque era will be performed by professional local and visiting musicians on Wednesday, October 4 at twilight in the atmospheric and historic St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Built in 1904, the church features Tiffany Studios stained glass windows considered by many art historians to be among the best art glass ever created. Other festival highlights include a reading by Nantucket poets on Sunday, October 1, at 4 pm in the Methodist Church. Local musicians will be featured in five Petite Concerts in the Methodist Church sanctuary weekdays at noon during the Arts Festival. Check the calendar of events in this publication and on Nantucket.net for more events and details. During the final weekend of Nantucket Arts Festival 2017—October 7 and 8— featured events include the popular Nantucket Music Center Organ Crawl. During this Saturday morning event, five historic organs will be played in short concerts, one after the other, starting at 9:15 am in St. Mary’s Church, First Congregational Church, the Unitarian Church, St. Paul’s, and the United Methodist Church. Performances are timed so that listeners can travel from church to church in succession, but don’t be late or you may miss one of the performances. Also during the weekend of October 7 and 8, the Artists Association of Nantucket will host their annual Wet Paint Auction and Benefit Dinner, featuring fresh works created by AAN artists. For details and tickets to the dinner, visit nantucketarts.org. The Nantucket Arts Festival is organized by the Nantucket Arts Council (NAC). Founded in 1973, NAC is a non-profit organization that supports and encourages a collaborative community of the visual, performing and literary arts through education, grants, scholarships and events. NAC recognizes and supports artists on Nantucket; stages signature annual events such as the Arts Fest and Downtown Celebrity Concerts; and provides grants and programming to ensure that Nantucket’s children are afforded the opportunity to get up close and personal with performers and artists by attending productions that might otherwise be unattainable to them. NAC encourages and collaborates with many organizations and individuals to produce arts and cultural events on Nantucket.

September Silence from page 5

bottles, take out boxes, and plastic cups disappear, as do the pizza boxes and the UPS shipping containers. Then it was gone. We stood at the back of an open car and talked about the Land Bank with the workers. They wanted to plant trees on Easy Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; just crazy. Then, the boys ran to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take It or Leave It.â&#x20AC;? My great challenge is not the second part, but the first. I can drop off the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; toys and some old shirts that have shrunken pretty easily, but I have a hard time getting past the books. I am sure that I will live forever because I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possibly die while I still have another fifty books to read. These days, they sit in an old L.L. Bean bag in the bed of the truck, since I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring them inside with all of the other unread books. Soon, I suspect, the springs will break and the back of the truck will be dragged down by waterlogged spy novels and naval histories. Today, however, I had to pick up a thin cookbook. Now, if there is anything I need less than a left handed wrench and the collected poetry of Tom Clancy, it would be a cookbook. But the dump yielded a book given to me in my first month on island, by the writer herself: A Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tour of Nantucket. Fred and Sue Vallet were among the first people to accept my postdated rent checks. Her â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tourâ&#x20AC;? has a wide range of recipes that use Ritz Crackers, Cool Whip, and pickle juice, but they all work well. One of the best long forgotten recipes is a 22 ingredient seafood salad from Goldie Rogerson. Some people go through photo albums and relive their golden childhoods. I have cookbooks. My mother left me her treasured Campbell Soup cookbook, my uncle bequeathed Craig Claiborne, James Beard, and ten years of Gourmet magazine. My mother-in-law handed off a set of recipes along with an offer to teach me how to cook her favorite dishes the RIGHT way. Everyone has a dish or a dessert that can be breathed back to life, cooled on a rack, and frosted. Out in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sconset, the market is closing for the year. Usually, I discover too late that the market is closed by a freshly painted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gone Fishingâ&#x20AC;? sign. This time, I made it in time for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fileneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basement Half Off Everythingâ&#x20AC;? sale. Dazed Sconset men wandered the aisles shouting questions to their wives: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honey do we need more fig infused olive oil?â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;The beach toys are for sale. Should we get the Christmas presents now?â&#x20AC;? The award winner came from a mother of the bride who had twenty Sconset t-shirts in her hands because they would make â&#x20AC;&#x153;great gifts for the wedding party.â&#x20AC;? Sadly, she could not put them on her house charge. I was able to escape with a Market bag, olive oil, some saffron, cashews, and a package of Oreos. A good haul. We drove the Polpis Road back to town. The Jeeps, the Suburbans, and the Hummers were away for the winter. As were the golfers. On a day given to Billionaires and Brides, Sankaty was still. September stands silent. The crowds have gone from the Stop and Shop and the Juice Bar. The firemen can put away their traffic cones. The boats are going back to the Bahamas or to storage, whichever is cheaper. The cars on Main Street just got a lot older. Nonetheless, you can stand next to the Hydrangea truck and see nothing move but the clouds and shadows. The Grace of God has nothing to say. The island has space again. The sidewalks and bike-paths are filled with nothing but leaves. The rotary sits empty for minutes at a time. Sanford Farm, Tuppancy, and Sankaty have slipped back into a world without men. You walk them in silence as in a cathedral.

Climate Resiliency from page 8

drains to allow for water to escape if it gets trapped behind the bulkhead. In 2015, the Town on Nantucket was the recipient of one of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Coastal Resiliency Grants. In this grant, titled Empowering Coastal Communities to Prepare for and Respond to Sea Level Rise and Storm-Related Inundation: A Pilot Project for Nantucket, the town proposed implementing flood- and erosion-control measures at three vulnerable and high-use public sites prioritized by the town’s Coastal Management Plan and identify and map low-lying areas that act as pathways for storm tides to inundate inland areas. The Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown has worked to create the inundation maps with the Town of Nantucket. The maps, which illustrate storm tide pathways, will be used to help the town prioritize other Coastal Management Plan action items. In addition, the storm water improvement program has been working to mitigate on-going flooding due to undersized drainage pipes. These improvements started with Children’s Beach and Orange Street. The new, larger pipes and “Best Management Practices” tanks for run-off treatment have since reduced flooding in both of those areas. Future improvement plans for drainage and catch basins include India Street, South Water Street, and East Chestnut Street. Another infrastructure project was completed in 2017 with the improvements and repairs to the east and west jetties. These jetties provide protection not only for vessels entering and exiting the harbor but as a “harbor of refuge” for transiting ships looking to safely weather significant storm events throughout the year. The jetties had sustained damage during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012. The recently completed project, funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, will improve water flow in the channel and flush the harbor with the tides as huge holes in the jetties were plugged. The height of the jetties was also raised to avoid the number of boat accidents hitting the jetties which had increased in recent years. Students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute conducted a comprehensive review of Nantucket’s vulnerable infrastructure in 2015. Among their findings were differentiating what infrastructure should be relocated, which should be elevated, and which should be “flood proofed” if not relocatable. High priorities were identified as the Sea Street Pump Station and the Candle Street Substation, both of which are highly vulnerable to high tides and within the 100-year flood zone. Since Candle Street Substation is the central hub for electrical distribution to the island, it is one of the most important facilities in the downtown area. Sea Street Pump Station collects wastewater from the downtown area and pumps it to the island’s Wastewater Treatment Plant; therefore, it is the most critical pump on the island. Recently, the Town has moved to make improvements to the Sea Street Pump Station. When it is complete, it will have a state-of-the-art control system that can be accessed remotely and have pumps designed to work even if they are under water in case of a flood. While our Town is working over the long-term to repair, improve, or move our vital infrastructure, thus improving our climate resiliency, there are things residents can do now to prepare for a storm. Visit the Town of Nantucket’s website at nantucket-ma.gov/298/Emergency-Preparedness for local Emergency Preparedness information, including links to FEMA, emergency shelter information, and emergency information broadcast sources.

Tasting sake is also similar to tasting wine. First look at the color of the sake. Another helpful term is Nigori, meaning that the sake has been unfiltered. Then smell the aromatics of the sake, looking for fruit and mineral, earthy components. Take a sip of the sake and confirm the same or different tastes on the palate that you sensed on the nose, along with considering such factors as sweet versus dry, the amount of acidity and the length of the taste lingering in your mouth. When trying to learn about the different styles, it is recommended to sample no more than four different selections at a time to get you started on your sake tasting certification. Here are a list of suggestions that not give you a cross section of styles, the names are quite entertaining as well. Tozai Ginjo “Well of Wisdom”—This is a lovely, entry-level, easy drinking introduction to sake. The rice has been polished enough that you can tell it is sake, but it isn’t too much that you feel like you are chewing on the rice itself. Well of Wisdom draws its water source from the town of Fushimi, which means “hidden water” and is known for its characteristically soft and pure water that is perfect for brewing sake. It has tropical fruit aromas with a refreshing white pepper finish. This is perfect on a warm Indian Summer Day or as an aperitif before heading to dinner. Pair this with Shrimp skewers and citrus based ceviches Fukucho Junmai “Forgotten Fortune”—Fukucho is the only brewer to use the rice used to make this sake. It is a strain that had been abandoned by brewers despite being the parentage of several other rice varieties, hence the name. They painstakingly revived it along with farmers who had to relearn to grow it. This sake has loads of earthiness on the nose, layers of texture and is bold and full flavored on the finish. Bonus: Female owner and brewer! Pair this with locally farmed Nantucket oysters Dassai Junmai Daiginjo “Otter Fest 23”—Dassai blends the best ingredients with old-fashioned experience and cutting edge technology. This sake is polished to an unprecedented and highly difficult 23% polish ratio, therefore the number designation in the name. It offers a delicate fruity aroma of honeydew melon and McIntosh apples with a refined flavor on the palate, making it full bodied yet slightly sweet. This sake also happens to be Kosher. Pair this with Tuna sashimi Suigei Tokubetsu Junmai “Drunken Whale”—The term Tokubetsu means that the sake is very special and has been made from rice stalks specifically grown for sake making. The rice grains have been milled more than average, making this a very labor-intensive sake to produce with a strong ricey flavor. The nose has floral, woodsy aromas. On the palate, it has moderate texture and viscosity yet is very dry. An extremely clean sake, the Drunken Whale is for the serious sake drinker. Pair this with Royal Oscietra Caviar New to sake drinking? Don’t be intimidated by the pretty labels and character symbols that you may not be able to interpret just yet. Most US importers of sake know it can be overwhelming when you first get started. That is why they typically have a handle little chart on the back label of the sake bottle to decipher what you will be enjoying from the inside of the bottle. Kanpai!

Built after Nantucket’s Great Fire of 1846, when the original structure burned to the ground, the Mitchell-Andrews fish house began life as a carpentry shop belonging to the Mitchell family. It remained in their family until 1895 when Holmes McCleve purchased it. James S. Andrews subsequently bought it to run his fishing business, which included clams and oysters. It has stayed in their family ever since, and James Clinton Andrews taught sailing to generations of summer kids. “Clint” and his wife Edith were long-time AAN members and friends with many local artists. “This is a truly exciting collaboration where we are able to showcase some historic art in an even more historic island fish house, merging the two and giving a glimpse into old Nantucket on both levels,” said AAN executive director Cecil Barron Jensen. “It is especially meaningful because the Andrews family has had such a long tenure with the AAN...we are grateful to Ginger Andrews, who offered her fish house without hesitation,” added Jensen. This unique opportunity to own works hand-picked from the AAN collection, the Pop-Up sale will feature art by both well-known local and visiting artists, including limited edition woodcuts, oils, and watercolors from unrestricted donations by art patrons and collectors. “This is a rare opportunity to purchase a piece of your very own art from this special collection, which features works by Fritz Eichenberg, Schuyler Brant, Naima Rauam, John Austin, and others,” said AAN curator of exhibitions Robert Frazier.

Featured Restaurant:

Best Bites of 2017 Here are our choices for “Best Bites” at Nantucket Restaurants for 2017: these are our favorite dishes among those we tasted during our Featured Restaurant visits this season—appetizers and entrees that we’d love to have again. Some of these dishes that we enjoyed during July and August were seasonal and have been replaced by autumn fare; some that we tried last spring are back on the menus for autumn. We’re confident that even if you cannot try the dishes we list here, you’re sure to find an alternative at each of these eateries that can become your Best Bite pick! Send us a photo and description of your favorite to yi@nantucket.net and follow and tag us on Instagram @NantucketInsider.

The proprietors bar & table 9 india Street • 508-228-7477 • proprietorsnantucket.com

There is much to love on the menu at Proprietors, and new items are added freDining at quently. Proprietors is a meal of Best Bites, but one we like best is their Beet Salad. The beauty of this was second only to the subtle sweet flavors of the golden, red, and purple beets arranged with delicate buttermilk mozzarella, cashews, and dried dates

Brant point Grill at the White Elephant, 50 Easton Street BrantpointGrill.com • 508-325-1320

With the return of cooler weather, we’re dreaming of Chef Thomas Pearson’s Breaded Pork Chop, a massive 12-ounce bonein chop, its thick, crisp breading enclosing superbly moist and tender pork. A handful of arugula and parmesan salad was served on top of the chop, and a tangy lemon-caper sauce poured over. Even the roasted red bliss potatoes deserve praise: the crunchy browned exteriors gently smashed to reveal fluffy white centers.

centre Street Bistro 29 centre Street • 508-228-8470 • NantucketBistro.com

Whether you stop in for a bountiful weekend breakfast, supremely satis-

fying weekday lunch, or a very special dinner, Centre Street is sure to please. We adore their Bistro Shrimp, plump with a delectable sesame crust, served over rice noodles and vegetables in a red curry sauce and topped with fresh mango relish.

The Ship’s inn 13 Fair Street • 508-228-0040 • shipsinnnantucket.com

The Grilled Swordfish stole the show this summer at Ship’s Inn! This was the best swordfish we’d tasted in a decade. The fish was moist and flaky, and drizzled with a lemon thyme beurre blanc that was both bright and rich. The timbale of creamed spinach, truffle baked potato, and roasted tomato topped with a tomato compote accompaniments were also superb. When our server collected this dish there was not tidbit left on it.

Breeze Bar & café in the Nantucket Hotel, 77 Easton Street breezebarandcafe.com • 508-228-4730

Chef Bill Weisse described his Pacific Poke Bowl as “sourced locally and tastefully infused with delicate flavors that leave you wishing for more.” We discovered from the first forkful that his description was spot-on. Fresh tuna, its pink flesh anointed with sesame oil, shoyu, and dried seaweed, is cut into medium pieces and served deliciously cool with creamy diced avocado and crisp chilled wakame over warm rice with tiny bits of sweet carrot and ginger root stirred in. The mix of textures and temperatures makes this especially appealing.

try one of the Specialty Burgers, make it the Sriracha. The Sriracha Burger has more flavor than fire, but make no mistake, it is spicy! Sriracha is added to the patty and the mayo and the burger is topped with jalapeno relish, Pepper Jack cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and onion. And the fries that come with are crisp on the outside, fluffy inside, salty and hot. YUM!

rated dish looks like an elaborate dessert. The irresistibly smooth foie is topped with a translucent ruby red hibiscus gelée. Fresh sweet red and white strawberries are scattered around the plate, with green almonds, dots of strawberry puree, and crunchy cubes of kohlrabi.

Dune 20 Broad Street • 508-228-5550 DuneNantucket.com

We rarely order scallops until Bay Scallop season starts, but at the encouragement of our server, we tried the fresh Seared Georges Bank Scallops and found them astonishingly good! Perfectly caramelized top and bottom, the sea scallops were sweet and succulent and served in a vivid gingery broth of coconut and lemon grass made even richer when we broke open the poached egg. Chilled pickled daikon and carrot with thin slices of radish and beans added a tasty contrast in taste and texture.

Fans of fish will adore the Pan Seared Day Boat Fluke Chef Peter Jannelle prepares at Fifty-Six. A coating of pecans crushed nearly to dust imparts the essence of the nut to the bracingly fresh fluke without masking its mild, sweet flavor. The moist fish is served on deep purple Forbidden Rice ringed by a colorful jumble of tendercrisp vegetables: golden sweet corn, red and orange bell pepper, asparagus, purple bits of onion, and red tomato. Lemon-thyme butter sauce adds luscious richness to this seafood supper.

Atlas restaurant 130 pleasant Street • 508-825-5495 • atlasnantucket.com Chef Brandt Gould of Atlas is equally talented with meats as he is with fruit de mer, so it was difficult to choose just one favorite here. We chose his

rose & crown 23 South Water Street • 508-228-2595 • theroseandcrown.com We can’t offer enough praise for the Burgers at The Crown. You can BYOB (Build Your Own Burger), adding sauteed onions, mushrooms, bacon, and any of six different cheeses to your custom 8-ounce Angus beef patty. If you

Half Local Lobster because is just sings with flavor! It’s so sweet and tender that it is exactly what you think of when you long for lobster. Chef Gould grills it with a light touch, adding French shallot and garlic butter, and serves it with creamy new potatoes and elegant roasted artichokes.

are offered in half portions as appetizers or full plates as entrees. Of these, our favorite is the Linguini with Local Quahogs. Simple and simply delicious, everything about this dish is perfect: the linguine just al dente, the clams fresh, briny, and tender; there’s just the right amount of sauce, plenty of parmesan, and a touch of freshly ground pepper.

Fresh, breaded by hand, and cooked to order, fried clams here are the best on the island. The clams are whole belly and delightfully tender with a crunchy breading. You can get them on their own or as part of the Fisherman’s Platter. This enormous Platter has a big portion of clams, plus lots of succulent scallops, and freshly cut, breaded, and fried codfish that is hot and flaky. Even the cool, crisp slaw and the delicious house-made tartar sauce prepared with two kinds of mustard, red wine vinegar, and tarragon that come with the platter deserve high praise.

There’s a different special every night at this local eatery. If you have to choose just one evening, make it Wednesday, when they have Wing Night and their Endless Pasta special. Their jumbo wings are a real treat: moist and meaty, but our favorite is the Honey Sriracha Wings that start out sweet and end with a flicker of heat. For the pasta, order their Orecchiette with Shrimp. For this, the pasta is tossed with sauteed pancetta, mushrooms, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, and a fresh basil in a luxurious chipotle cream sauce is folded in. The perfectly grilled shrimp just guild the lily!
