It's been four years since Cru's opening, and this restaurant is still the place to see and be seen on Nantucket. With views of the megayachts in the harbor—and the best perch to people watch in town—Cru's coveted location is only made better by their cocktails and fresh seafood. The restaurant's menu is an ode to the ocean, with a raw bar that serves up everything from caviar to oysters. Their classic mains echo the same sensibility, with two lobster dishes—one poached in butter and one traditional lobster roll—as well as grilled swordfish, Chatham cod, and steak frites. This waterfront restaurant also includes two bars, both of which are roaring in the summer months. If you're going with a group, consider ordering the Garden of Elyx for four (a punch of cold brewed green tea, apricot liqueur, Absolute Elyx, raspberries, and Madeira).
