The good news. The place is charming, the service attentive, it has AC which was great on a humid night. Now the surprising part- I found it uninspired. Simple food, simple veggies, simple ideas. Tasty- yes indeed. We had some of the pizzas, a scallop entree, a meat and a chicken. The wine list isn't mind-blowing extensive but it has good variety.
It is not inexpensive, and I didn't expect it to be, but I was hoping that for the price there would be some passion, something surprising- but alas, I was disappointed. Again, it was tasty and the service was good, but to me it just missed. There are some great restaurants in Nantucket with chefs that really have passion and care, I just got the sense that this place needs to hire one of them.
