Straight Wharf is Nantucket's answer to Chez Panisse. Under the direction of owners Gabriel Frasca and Amanda Lydon, the kitchen prepares playful takes on summer staples, such as their legendary clam bake or chicken under a brick. Elegant, but never fussy, the dishes draw on Nantucket's local ingredients, with Bartlett tomatoes and local fish front and center. Guests dine in two distinct settings at this perennial favorite: the formal dining room and the bar grill. The bar grill serves a separate menu, and gets livelier (and noisy) as the night goes on. Straight Wharf doesn't accept reservations for its less formal side—get there early to snag an outside table and relish some of the best food on the island at an excellent price point.
