Joining the island’s foodie ranks in 2021, Sister Ship at Faraway Nantucket is a shiny beacon on Centre Street. The farm-to-table restaurant presents a Mediterranean-influenced menu with all their ingredients sourced from farmers and producers throughout Nantucket. The courtyard lounge is the place to be on a balmy summer evening, perched in a wicker chair under fringed umbrellas. And when you start to get peckish, head inside for some delicious sharable plates.
Bostonians know that the best move in the summertime is to ditch the pavement for the island life. And the favorite for most of us is Nantucket. ACK serves up some of the freshest seafood on the East Coast, but that doesn’t mean that the island is filled with just seafood shacks, no. Nantucket is one of the most sophisticated dining hubs around, which is exactly why we have rounded up our favorite restaurants on the island. But if you're stuck ashore on the Massachusetts mainland this season, be sure to get your fill of summertime favorites at the best seafood restaurants and oyster bars right in Boston—or pretend you're on vacation by stretching out on one of our city's best patios.
