The Winners Are... For more than 25 years, we’ve been holding our annual Nantucket Photo Contest and giving cash prizes to the first and second place winners. In reviewing the nearly 900 entries to this year’s contest, we were reminded of the many foggy and overcast days during summer 2017. We were also struck by how much fun island visitors have no matter what the weather brings! We had entries from 18 states, from the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, and many that were sent in by Nantucket residents. Several winter photos were entered, despite the fact that it was not a particularly snowy winter. The most frequently photographed subjects this summer were sunrises and sunsets and we received more surfing photos and photos taken from drones than ever before! We also received plenty of action shots taken during Race Week (thank you Alice & Kathryn). Only two people sent in photos of the island’s Fourth of July fun and we got none from Pops—these are big events with plenty of opportunities for fun photos, come on readers, submit a few! Tom Griswold of Vernon, Connecticut took first place with his photo of Nantucket’s Oldest House in springtime. It’s easy to focus on our island’s pristine beaches and fabulous restaurants, but take a few hours or a day to explore what the Nantucket Historical Association and Nantucket Shipwreck & Life-Saving Museum have to offer. They tell exciting stories of drama and tragedy, loss and triumph that will help you understand Nantucket’s place in history. Our second place winner is Samantha Hassold of Califon, New Jersey for her colorful and inviting photo of a beach path in Madaket lined with rosa rugosa in bloom. (Samantha, we hope you used a telephoto lens for those wonderful close-ups of a seal!) You can still see these photos at nantucket.net/photos/gallery.php along with many others that received honorable mention. To the many amateur photographers who did not receive a prize or honorable mention: don’t give up, there’s always another chance to win — we’re already accepting entries for the 2018 Nantucket photo contest. Check online at Nantucket.net or YesterdaysIsland.com, your photo may appear in the Photo Contest Gallery there. If you have a photo you’d like to share of a Nantucket Wedding, you can enter it in our Wedding Photo Contest. Send it in with the entry form found at NantucketWeddings.com.

On Saturday, October 7, the White Heron Theatre Company will present two staged readings that are the culmination of Next Step Fest, a development program for promising new plays for the American stage. Next Step Fest continues White Heron’s commitment to new work. Will Arbery play Evanston Salt Costs Climbing will be presented at 4 pm on Saturday, followed by a reception at 5:30 pm. At 6 pm, A Liberal Tradition written by Mary Elizabeth Hamilton will be presented. “Next Step Fest is a development reading series to give playwrights an opportunity to take their work to the next level, “said Amanda Charlton, artistic director of the Next Step Fest program for White Heron. “This festival gives playwrights an opportunity to work on their plays with actors and directors, elevating the practice of writing from a solitary process to that of a communal process. “ “The workshop process is incredibly fruitful for the playwright, as the luxury of 3 to 4 days with directors and actors can change the play and propel the work forward, “ said Sally Horchow, Next Step Fest producer. “Nantucket is the perfect creative environment for this type of work.� “Each playwright will have a week to rehearse with their actors/directors, rewriting scenes after they explore what works and what doesn't,� said Lynne Bolton, White Heron Artistic Director. “The gift of actors is very valuable to the process as they often have the best questions or tangible concerns while figuring out both their character and the arch of the play. “ “White Heron is committed to new work ,� said Michael Kopko, White Heron Executive Director. “ In addition to the two new plays and new adaptations we debuted in the 2017 summer season – SeaWife and Romeo and Juliet -- we have had three plays open on world stages in the past year as a result of our collaboration with the Long Wharf Theatre. This Next Step Fest continues our work with playwrights on new plays.� Tickets are available at whiteherontheatre.org.

Cultivating a Healthy Nantucket The NantucketGrown™ Food Festival is a unique event that celebrates Nantucket's growing local food system, educates the community about the benefits of land and sea sustainability, and supports and celebrates local growers, farmers, fishermen, and food producers. For four days from October 12 to 15, the festival offers more than 25 events, some free, many low cost, and a few ticketed that includes celebrity chef cooking demonstrations and hands-on lessons, meals, tastings, tours of farms, scalloping lessons, storytelling, and many educational opportunities. At the beginning of the “off-season,” the NantucketGrown Food Festival offers a chance to experience the real Nantucket. The island has always drawn an exceptional group of people who have varied skills and expertise. This weekend is no exception. Bren Smith and Tama Matsuoka Wong will be featured alongside Nantucket’s chefs, growers, and harvesters. This is an ideal chance to speak with and learn from people who are committed to living their farm (or sea)-to-table passion. Opening Night will represent a microcosm of Nantucket’s food system, showcasing beekeepers, oyster farmers, food producers, and many of the island’s celebrated chefs. One of the highlights of the Festival will be a hands-on lesson at the Nantucket Culinary center followed by a multi-course Chef’s Table dinner prepared by Chef Mayumi Hattori at her new restaurant, the Club Car. There is an ever-expanding movement in the United States to learn how and where food is sourced, how to eat local, and how to utilize native foods. Highlights of the 2017 Food Festival include foraging expeditions and a Wild Weed Harvest cocktail party led by author and forager Tama Matsuoka Wong. Wong is an attorney turned forager, who has re-imagined what is possible with lowly “weeds” in her book, Foraged Flavor. As a forager for the renowned and luxurious NYC restaurant, Daniel, and as a nominee for a James Beard Award (one of the highest awards in the culinary world), Wong has elevated continued on page 18

Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket

Vol. 47 No. 21 • YesterdaysIsland.com

Season of the Stick by Robert P. Barsanti The ocean chewed the dark. Miles from the beach, the crunching and biting hung in the immediate present, distinct and clear. Overhead, the calendar roared and the power lines hummed. My boon companion and I were checking the fortifications as we do each night. We look for interlopers, check for trails and mysterious smells, and then mark our visit in an unmistakable way. Tonight, we paused. His back hair spiked in a mohawk. The season of the stick had fallen. They littered the yard, with all of the leaves of summer and the growing bog waters of winter. No matter what the landscapers do or what the realtors say, no house on this island is more than a few feet from sand and water. In storms, the water rises up and reminds us of how it all ends. On Nantucket, winter doesn’t so much as arrive, as it gets revealed. Summer grows and spreads like new skin. The grass glows, the buds pop, and the warm air breathes over us from Surfside and Cisco. In a moment, the boats arrive, the towels spread, and the corn grows high. In the warm, glowing nights of summer, you can sink down into the season and let it buoy you up. Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow will have waves, gentle breezes, and heavy tomatoes. And it will. Until it won’t. Then summer gets blown from the trees and drowned in the puddles. My boon companion growled into the dark. Nothing rose to my eyes, however. He may have scented one of the Ninja bunnies or a lost raccoon. The neighbors had drained the pipes, removed the trash, and called the caretakers. The sump pump under their house gurgled. Without the summer people, the street returned to comfortable darkness. He growled again. I loosened the leash and let him lead me. Two houses down, a single light glowed over a new garage. The sticks of some desperate tree thrashed and throttled in the wind, casting chaotic light over the driveway. We walked down to it. Water lined both sides of the street.

Ladies Night for Liz on November 2 Nine years ago, Garden Center Manager Liz Morcone de Souza spearheaded a new event at Bartlett’s Farm: Ladies’ Night. Designed to be an opportunity for local women to gather, enjoy refreshments, and shop local for the holidays, it was also a fundraiser for a local charity. Her co-workers at the farm joined in enthusiastically and Ladies’ Night became a much anticipated annual event at Bartlett’s Farm. “So many things about this even spoke to Liz. Here business sense saw an opportunity to bring people to the farm at a slower time. Secondly, a way to gather a bunch of women together to support each other (and shop) was an easy sell for her,” Leah Mojer of Bartlett’s Farm explained. In early August of this year, Liz passed away suddenly from natural causes; all at the farm and many of her island friends and neighbors were heartbroken at the loss of her light and for her family. In her honor, this year’s Ladies Night on Thursday, November 2 from 5 to 8 pm, is dedicated to the founder of the event, and 2017 proceeds will be donated to the Elizabeth Ann Morcone de Souza Memorial Fund. New this year is The Sunflower Hour. For one hour before general admission (5 to 6 pm), a special VIP preview will be held. With Liz in mind, Bartlett’s staff named it after her favorite flower. Sunflower Hour guests will enjoy a less crowded experience, where there will be passed appetizers, wine and other libations, and a live band. Sunflower Hour participants will receive a gift bag and the farm will raffle off a chance to win Thanksgiving dinner for four plus a beautiful Farm Made wreath for all Sunflower Hour attendees! Tickets to Sunflower Hour are $50 and are available at bartlettsfarm.com. Starting at 6 pm, general admission will open with a suggested donation of $20 at the door. Until 8 pm, many local vendors will be offering a wide range of handmade crafts, art, apparel, accessories, jewelry, and more that make wonderful holiday presents. There will be a silent auction, a Chinese auction, friendly faces, and lots of holiday cheer.

New Designs for a New Season After more than five decades in business and more than 75 trips around the world, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think island designer Don Freedman would have seen it all, but every season he brings new designs into his shop that delight his many regular clients and inspire new ones. Now that autumn has arrived, so have many new discoveries. There are sets of candlesticks sculpted to look like harps; beautifully adorned photo frames and handpainted boxes, just to name a few items. There are stunning lamps, including a hanging candle candelabra that adds light and style to a room, and many items made from nickle and from leather that add a warm and masculine touch to a home. Freedman has also brought in many pieces that fit into a French Industrial decor...â&#x20AC;?weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken it back to the way it wasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heavy and real,â&#x20AC;? he explained. The tables have forged iron legs and the dining and cocktail tables have a wheel that works to make the table go up and down.â&#x20AC;? Many glass pieces in his shop have an organic look and add a subtlety to room design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want every individual piece to stand out in a home. If you do then it goes from being interesting and elegant to being a novelty.â&#x20AC;? The glass items have been chosen to fit in well with many of Freedmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued on page 11

Summer Hours: Monday-Saturday, 11am - last call @ 7pm; Sunday, noon - last call @ 6pm Tastings, tours, live music and good times! Kids, snacks, & leashed dogs welcome!

Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket bolder statements, such as his distinctive leather chests, bookcases, valet, bar, jewelry box, and desk. Freedman smiled and added “I put a lot of effort into creating a store with a presence. We get a lot of repeat customers who make this a destination when they are on Nantucket...people who return and buy from us every year. It’s very rewarding.” Freedman’s of Nantucket (formerly Expressions of Don Freedman) opened on Nantucket on Old South Wharf in 1981 and seven years ago moved to more spacious in-town location. Don Freedman is the designer for products made by carefully chosen craftspeople around the world. “I meet someone making a product to sell and redesign it for better quality... as a result our pieces are unique and

can be sold for reasonable prices.” Over the years, Freedman’s has evolved to match the tastes of those who visit Nantucket, describing his product line now as “more sophisticated, more elegant... We’ve done business with about half the interior designers in town and several from Connecticut for their customers on-island and off-island.” Because each item is made by hand, Freedman explained, there is “a warmth and an honesty” to the pieces in his shop that you don’t often find in today’s market. With a mix of art and practicality, Freedman’s has something for every taste and decor. Freeman’s of Nantucket Open Daily at 14 Centre Street 508-228-3291

COACHING AT THE CORNER with Marsha Egan, Professional Certi<ied Coach

Every other Thursday, 8:30am Mitchell’s Book Corner

by Sarah Treanor Bois

Our next discussion: Oct. 19th Setting Goals for a Fun and Ful<illing Future

Director of Research & Education for the Linda Loring Nature Foundation Unlike the rest of New England, Nantucket is not particularly known for its fall colors. People travel to Nantucket in the fall not for leaf peeping, but for the warmer maritime climate, the fishing, and weddings. And while there are some beautiful fall colors just waiting to show their stuff, beware the nonnative invasive species. Some of these showy invaders may look pretty, but their invasive tenacity can pack a punch. Looks, after all, can be deceiving. Oriental Bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus) is one of the worst invaders in New England. The woody climbing vine is native to Eurasia, where lianas (or woody vines) are common. This climbing powerhouse can girdle trees, shade out natives, and generally take over any patch of ground or sky. The bright orange and red fruit burst open in the fall, making it a favorite of decorators everywhere. Martha Stewart still recommends making wreaths for decorations even though the plant is officially listed as invasive in all six New England states. Seeds of bittersweet are spread when the plants in the arrangements are later thrown away. Birds love the fruits, too, and help to disperse far and wide the seeds which will grow almost anywhere. Beware the bittersweet wreaths! Save yourself a landscaping headache and get a fake wreath if you must. Otherwise, the decorations you thought looked sweet in October will leave a bittersweet taste in your mouth come December. Burning bush (Euonymus alatus) is widely planted as an ornamental shrub throughout the country. Its gorgeous fall foliage of fiery red gives it its name, but also its popularity. At one time, it was heralded by many conservation groups as a great shrub to plant to attract birds. The fruits are ideal for migratory birds as they are held onto the plant well into the fall and winter. For this same reason, birds have helped distribute this plant far and wide well away from the cultivated areas where they were first planted. Now that we know more about its invasive tendencies, please avoid planting this in your yard and opt instead for native sumac or sassafras. continued on page 26 formerly

Food Festival from page 5

edible weeds to a culinary pedestal. Winner of the prestigious Fuller Challenge Award, Bren Smith was chosen by Sustainable Nantucket as the 2017 NantucketGrown Food Festival â&#x20AC;&#x153;Future of Foodâ&#x20AC;? Presenter based on his visionary work designing multi-species, 3dimensional ocean farms. At his Thimble Island Farm in CT, Smith has created a sustainable and profitable ocean farming business that uses a small, low-tech footprint to grow several different types of shellfish and the fast growing superfood, kelp. From these crops, Bren produces food, animal feeds, fertilizers and more. His farm helps to restore, rather than deplete, the ecosystem as the shellfish filters harmful pollutants out of the water and the kelp sequesters carbon while growing. It is not often that a farming entrepreneur develops a new way of farming that involves low economic and environmental investment with such high return. Smith established GreenWave, a non-profit that provides education, training and support to aspiring farmers as they establish their own sustainable ocean farms by replicating his infrastructure. Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GreenWave is currently fielding requests from potential ocean farmers in every US coastal state and 40 different countries. Based on Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extraordinary success, Sustainable Nantucket is working with local farmers to lead the charge in exploring the potential to create an ocean farming hub in our island waters. Smith will be speaking at a number of events during the Food Festival. Sustainable Nantucket is cultivating a healthy Nantucket by building a more locally-based and self-reliant food system, and a stronger island economy. In addition to the annual Food Festival, their regular programs include: the seasonal Saturday Farmers & Artisans Market, the NantucketGrownâ&#x201E;˘ Campaign, the SN Community Farm Institute, and Farm to School. The Farmers & Artisans Market, now in its 10th year, is designed to raise the profile of our established farms and give our beginning farmers a chance to connect with the community and get retail value for their produce. It also fosters entrepreneurship, production of value-added food and artisanal products, and cottage industry. SNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NantucketGrownâ&#x201E;˘ Campaign encourages the consumption of locally grown food by promoting food service establishments with a proven commitment to sourcing locally, and encouraging consumers to support those establishments and to source directly from our farms and producers. The Community Farm Institute, located at the Walter F. Ballinger Educational Community Farm, is a beginning farmer training program that offers potential growers a hands-on education program in sustainable agriculture and farm business planning, along with access to land (each successful applicant receives a 1/8 acre parcel) and farm infrastructure such as water, solar power, walk-in cooler, propagation greenhouse, and tools. In 2016, the Nantucket Islands Land Bank awarded SN an additional 6.5 acres adjacent to our existing farm. And this year, they developed the basic infrastructure for this property, to ready the space for graduating farmers. SNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm to School program, established in 2010, offers island children hands-on, lifetime lessons in nutrition, agriculture and environmental stewardship in the garden, farm fields, classroom and cafeteria.

Wet Paint and Fresh Works The week leading up to the long Columbus Day weekend, artists will paint around the island—affording the public the opportunity to watch them work at their easels—and during a festive evening on Sunday, October 8, those works will be auctioned off at the Nantucket Yacht Club, 1 South Beach Street. The preview is free and open to the public and begins at 3 pm followed by the art auction at 5 pm. “There is so much that is new and fresh about this year’s Wet Paint thanks to our wonderful co-chairs Susan Coyne and Patty Keneally,” said AAN executive director Cecil Barron Jensen. “We are pleased to be holding the event at the Nantucket Yacht Club again this year, and are excited about hosting both a live and silent auction. The live auction will feature brand new fresh wet art, and the silent auction includes ceramics, photographs, mixed media, textile arts, and works in wood. “We truly believe there will be something for everyone,” added Jensen. “The Nantucket Yacht Club has been so accommodating again this year, and is such a beautiful and spacious setting to premier our artists’ works. In addition, we’ll have a small ticketed dinner at the club following the auction,” said Jensen. “As has been our tradition, we are pleased to have the wonderful Rafael Osona serving as our auctioneer. He is always a great draw for the event and we hope people will come and bid on the freshly painted works and silent auction items by some of the island’s top artists,” added Jensen. “Proceeds support the AAN’s artist memberships, arts program, gallery, and year-round public programs.” To learn more about Wet Paint / Fresh Works or to RSVP for the dinner, please call the AAN office at 508-228-0722 or visit nantucketarts.org.

side, all of the rain had washed away a hill of topsoil from one project, and built dirt bars and beaches along the side of the pavement. Further along, three goodsized branches had been crushed and dragged to the side of the road. This house had been a sandcastle for the summer. The project must have looked great on the computer screen. I could even see the happy couple looking at a very clever “fly through” on an iPad inside a chrome and crystal office. The project budded off of an upper income mall, with Anthropologie tags still on the handles. It had developed with the speed that the modern age brings— in two weeks a hole in the ground grew cement and beams, then was nailed weathertight by the beginning of June. But the modern world brings curses and blessings. The rest of the construction stumbled and stuttered to a conclusion in the evenings and on Saturdays. The yard was still mostly sand surrounding a green dumpster. Outside of the driveway, we hung back in the shadow. The light came from a window over the garage. The main house sat dark and, presumably, empty. Inside the garage apartment, the TV light flickered. While we stood, a man walked by the window. Outside in the driveway, a Toyota 4-Runner with New Hampshire plates sat with its headlights on. A “Make America Great Again” sticker was affixed to the rear bumper. Those stickers have become scarce as hen’s teeth on island. The pride and thrill many had with their red hats has faded away in the sullen reality of what a Great America would look like. I have been on a steady diet of headlines and pictures, but no articles nor news stories. My family has warmed their hearts with the New York Times and Rachel Maddow, but I can’t make that step just yet. I have more immediate challenges that, thankfully, require action and have solutions. My Boon Companion lapped up the road water, then left some in the high grass before coming back, sitting down, and looking up at me. The air was getting wet again. Were it not for the bumper sticker, I would have gone up to the car, opened the driver’s side door, and clicked the lights off, then tottered off into the night drunk on a good deed done in the anonymous dark. But the mischievous imp in the back of my mind wondered who he would call in the morning when the sun rose and the battery died. And I have a heart dark enough to imagine the scene in the blustery gray damp as he discovered that something else he had faith in had abandoned him and left him powerless. And, with that vision in my head, I noticed the car seat. Blue and plush, with cartoon bears along the bar, it had been secured behind the passenger seat, where the driver could retrieve pacifiers and toys dropped onto the floor. From the side of the car, the passenger could look to the driver with comfort and affection, then throw goldfish at him. So. I knocked on the door, then stepped back so that he could see the two of us in the light. A young man descended the stairs, looked at us oddly and I pointed out the mistake that would have abandoned him and his child to the elements in the morning. Then, after a respectful minute when he flicked off the lights (and locked the car), we waved each other and retreated. The two of us walked a dark road home. We are not who we are in the spring, when the future pushes up greenly into the waiting air. We are not who we are in the summer, when the waves roll in, the sky glistens, and the wind follows our wish. We are not who we are in the fall, when the sky hangs gold and purple in the sweatered air. We are who we are in the winter. In the dark. In the cold. In the wind.

Dangerous Beauty from page 17

Another fall favorite is Japanese barberry (Berberis thunbergii). The small, leather tear-shaped leaves turn bright red in the fall. The tiny red drupe fruits are also an eye-catching, hanging onto the plant late into the season making for a showy perennial. While it may sound nice, Japanese barberry has been in the news a lot for being a hotbed of tick activity. Not only is this Asiatic shrub highly invasive throughout New England, it provides ticks with ideal habitat. Like many invasive shrubs, Japanese barberry holds it leaves on late into the fall and winter. In doing so, it creates a humid environment that ticks love. Deer tend to eat around it, avoiding it in preference on native shrubs and wildflowers. This created more opportunity for barberry to grow and more habitat for ticks to hide out in. I think we can all agree that anything that increases deer tick habitat needs to go! If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not into fall foliage, fall flowering plants may be more your cup of tea. Sweet autumn clematis (Clematis terniflora) is an herbaceous vine that likes to grow up and over picket fences, arbors, and other shrubs. As the name implies, the tiny white flowers blossom in the fall and have a delicate, sweet fragrance. It can also tear down your arbor, white picket fence, and kill the shrub itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smothering. Sweet autumn clematis is native to temperate regions in China and Japan, but has become naturalized in many parts of North America. While not everyone considers this plant invasive, there are some other great alternatives that would be better than planting this invader. For many years, the freezing temperatures of a New England winter have helped continued on page 27

keep this plant in check. However, with global climate change and warmer winters, clematis has become more of an invasive problem especially on Cape Cod and the Islands. Another non-native invasive that is on the rise on Nantucket is porcelainberry (Ampelopsis glandulosa). This herbaceous vine can now be seen at Squam Farm, Lily Pond, and many other conservation properties on the island. As a relative of grape, the vine and leaves resemble our native fox grape. However, porcelain-berry leaves are much more highly lobed. Not really known for its foliage or flowers, porcelain-berry fruit can be seen in autumn and resemble multicolor Cadbury eggs. The round, speckled fruit come in shades of baby blue, light pink, and purple. Much like oriental bittersweet, porcelain-berry climbs on and over native plants. Migratory birds especially like these fruit and further spread the seeds beyond the local area. While attractive, these non-native invasive plants can cause economic and environmental harm. They are like some of the good-looking people one meets (you know the type): once we get past the exterior, we realize we wouldn't necessarily want them hanging out in our yards. Beyond these non-native invasives, there are many other plants to admire in the fall on Nantucket. The shrublands of the middle moors and western end of the island will turn crimson as the native black huckleberry bushes change into their fall foliage. The tupelo trees of Squam Swamp will brighten to crimson as the season progresses. Even the evergreen trees of the state forest will seem to brighten as the poison ivy and Virginia creeper climbing up their trunks redden. For more information about planting natives in your own yard, check out the Nantucket Biodiversity Initiative’s Invasive Plant Species Committee website. There you’ll find a downloadable brochure on Nantucket landscaping with native plants.

First Place: Tom Griswold of Vernon, CT This photo of Nantucket’s Oldest House in springtime by Tom Griswold took first place in our 2017 contest for its depiction of the beauty and the history of our island. Here at Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket, we are amazed when people who love Nantucket for its beauty and its recreation are unaware of its dramatic and fascinating history. In the Ric Burns film that shows in the Nantucket Whaling Museum, scholar Susan Beegel describes Nantucket as “a metaphor for the American experience.” Curator Ben Simons adds that it’s “A story of people reinventing themselves time and time again...a place where you can experiment, fail, and try again.” A few hours in the Nantucket Historical Association’s museums or the Nantucket Shipwreck & Life-Saving Museum is all it takes to begin to understand the real Nantucket.

Featured Restaurant: Black-Eyed Susan’s

Assertive Flavors, Inspired Pairings If it's your first evening visit to BlackEyed Susan's , you might be surprised that all their dinner offerings fit on one side of an 8 x 11 menu. But after you read the menu and understand the range of the chefs in this small island eatery, you'll realize that's all they need to please their patrons. Executive Chef and CoOwner Jeff Worster is bold enough to create dishes that you’ve probably never before tasted, and this is a kitchen fond of surprises. The menu is spare in its descriptions—each is really just a list of the main ingredients—so you’re putting yourself in the hands of this talented chef when you dine here. Good thing Worster’s team cooks with confidence: every plate served here delivers on its promise with assertive flavors and inspired pairings. With just four appetizers and four seasonal entrees, our team tasted everything on their fall menu... everything but the trio of regular offerings. On every Black-Eyed Susan’s dinner menu that we can remember (and they go back a ways!), there have been three dishes that haven’t changed: Whole Leaf Caesar Salad, Capellini, and Linguini with Local Quahogs. These can be ordered in half portions or full, and we know patrons who dream of these (especially the Linguini) from November to April, when the restaurant reopens for the season. We began our recent meal with Kaboucha Squash and Ginger Bisque. Chef Worster always includes a soup on the dinner menu, and it’s always delicious. This turned out to be a bowlful of warm flavors with a whisper of sweetness topped with rich bulgogi beef, the sharp taste of scallions, and a light crunch of kimchi. We enjoyed the Black-Eyed's Chopped Salad, a hearty mix of radicchio and napa cabbage dressed in a tahini that adds a deeply savory taste with a scattering of fun and crunchy chickpea "pebbles," but if you want a cold appetizer we recommend the Yam Pra Muek. It’s vibrant, fresh, spicy, crunchy, sharp, and tangy in just the right proportion. This spicy seafood salad combines the four elements of Thai cooking: salt, sweet, bitter and sour. Tender rings and tentacles of squid, Chinese celery, sweet cherry tomatoes at their peak in beautiful combination with Kaffir lime leaf, plenty of cilantro, and crispy bits of onion. Food on a stick is a Fall fair favorite, but we rarely see it served in a fine dining setting. But Black-Eyed Susan’s seems to revel in breaking the rules, much to their patrons’ delight! Especially when the result is something as good as their Mexican Street Corndog. Meaty and succulent, the plump

wagyu beef hot dog is given a crunchy cornmeal coating and topped with a luscious lime crema that helps the crumbled queso fresco and scallions cling to it. Chili and cilantro add even more flavor and heat. You can usually count on at least one special addition to the menu, and very frequently that will be Chef Worster’s Tuna Tartar. A stunning dish featuring deep red, sparkling fresh tuna chopped in medium-small dice and topped with tiny cubes of cool, crisp cucumber, the tuna is served simply with a side of chili aioli and scallion pancake. It’s the perfect starter: a dish that is so good you yearn for more but light enough that it won’t eclipse the main course. It’s wrong to call anything served at Black-Eyed Susan’s “comfort food” because there is nothing traditional or nostalgic about any of their dishes. But the Free Range Chicken Paillard is very satisfying and, well, comforting. The centerpiece of the dish is perfectly seared chicken that tastes gloriously of itself. A square of shredded sweet potatoes deliciously browned and crunchy on the outside, sweet and moist inside, is placed on top with a handful of wilted Swiss chard. Jus spiked with Reisling and flavored with cilantro surrounds the chicken. In the vein of making casual food something elegant (remember the corndog?) the Braised Lamb Meatballs present all the hearty flavors of a meatball sandwich elevated by using lamb for the meatballs and replacing the deli cheese with a salty grilled halloumi. This is served open-face on a thick slice of grilled ciabatta, surrounded by eggplant puttanesca with lots of capers. It can be difficult to make an exciting entree featuring a mild fish without overpowering it, but leave it to the chefs at Black-Eyed Susan’s to succeed. Their Seared Atlantic Halibut is a dish full of savory flavor. The well-seasoned and perfectly cooked fish is bathed in an onion-bacon dashi with tender slices of fingerling potatoes and grilled asparagus that tastes delightfully of bacon, garnished with wasabi sprouts With a deep russet crust on top and light pink underneath, we only had to tap the Tandoori Faroe Island Salmon with our forks to see it come apart in big, moist flakes and know it would be superb. The fish is topped with a brilliant apricot-ginger chutney, and served on an umami background of mildly seasoned yellow dahl, fresh spinach leaves, and cilantro. There are only two desserts offered at Black-Eyed Susan’s, but as with the appetizers and entrees, that’s all they need. There's a rich, dark Chocolate Pot de Creme with a trio of tasty cookies, coconut macaroon, sugar cookie, and white chocolate chip. And there’s our perennial favorite: the housemade Gelato with warm cinnamon tortilla. Last week Chef Worster’s gelato was a luscious autumnal pumpkin-maple-ginger, but no matter what flavor he features next week, we’re confident it will be delicious! Black-Eyed Susan’s open through late-October at 10 India Street stop by or call 508-325-0308 for reservations Breakfast served from 7 am to 1 p.m. Dinner served Mon.-Sat. from 6 to 10 pm Seatings are at 6 pm, 7:30 pm, and 9:15 pm entree prices range from $26 to $29 BYOB, corkage fee • Cash or checks only, no credit cards black-eyedsusans.com
